    Idt you should even consider getting a 200mb plan for an iPhone. Pretty much defeats the purpose of a smartphone. Just my thoughts lol

    I have an unlimited data plan but before I got my iPhone 4s I didn't stream music from pandora or use youtube except when connected to wifi and I never went over 200mb of data...I would occasionally browse the internet and use email. Now that I use pandora in my car I'm still under 2GB. I would say that if you don't stream music on 3G and moderately use the phone than yes 200mb will work for you. I hope that was helpful

    I probably could go on the 250MB plan. I stick with 2GB for safety measures. I literally am on wifi 90% of the time throughout my day.

    My gf does it and 2 of my friends do. Mostly use wifi. Gf usually has to shut off her cellular data so that she doesn't go over though, about 10before the reset

    Why anyone would have a phone like the iPhone or Android based phone or even a blackberry and have no need for anything outside 200MB of data usage is beyond me...the features that eat up data are kind of the point of this new era of smart phone.

    I am on a WiFi connection most of the time with my 4S. So far I have used over 280MB and Still have at least 15 more days in this billing cycle.

    I'm on Telus in Ontario and have used over 300 MB in a week :S. I have a 1G cap, but I'm now worried.

    I donít know if I would even want an iPhone if all I could do was use 200MB of data a month. Unless I was in Wifi 90% of the time 200MB of data would kinda make having a Smartphone useless. By the time you check 1 email, or look at the weather, or update a couple of times on Twitter, Facebook, etc.... you'd be maxed out (exaggeration), but still I'd be nervous to do anything without worrying about going over my cap.

    I agree with you on that as you need to be on constant look out for wifi connection. My office WIFI once in a while kicks me out and it would be late before I relalize that it happened. I am on 'grandfathered' unlimited plan. I was trying to monitor my usage to save my money ,, but realized that I wuld rather have the peace of mind with unlimited data

    i have been on wifi 90% of the time this first month with my iphone and only used 105mb of data so far with a week left to my billing cycle, but thankfully i am grandfathered into my unlimited data plan. i don't plan on having wifi all the time in the future and i can't believe how much data i even used when on constant wifi compared to my blackberry.

    if you have it, keep unlimited. or definitely go with the 2gb

    if you have wifi at home/work etc... where you will use the phone most... then i think you might get away with it.

    i would try the 2GB for a month... then drop back if you can

    if you're not going to use the iphone to its full potential then the 200 mb would be good. Power users definitely need the 2gb data plan.

    My Wife and all three of my teenagers survive off of 200MB each per month. They're around WiFi most of the day and kids have learned what to use and when. They use their iPhones as much a sthey want. I do have certain things cut off that they don't use but again they don't complain.

    I have Unlimited but I am always on the road.

    I'm around wifi most of the time. I have the unlimited data plan luckily, not willing to let it go. I would be able to survive on the 200mb plan more than likely, but I don't want to even try. One of the biggest uses for my iPhone to me is the map app. It's nice having directions in your pocket like that. I don't want to have the feeling of not being able to use that any time I want or as much as I want.

    I have a 6GB plan and generally I use between 350-600MB depending on how much tethering I do with my iPad but I am constantly on wifi I think I could get by with 200 but I would be paranoid and constantly worrying about it I got the 6GB for the same price as my old 500 MB plan so I figured why not and for my usage its pretty much unlimited no worrying about overages for this guy!
    I use the products that work the best for what I do.
