    We upgraded a few months ago to the iPhone 5 with Verizon. Data usage had been well below a Gig. Now bumping into usage issues; with phone using 2 gig and above. In looking at the internet on this issue it appears to be rampant. Although there is no clear cut answer that I have seen as to whether it is phone or the Verizon service wherein the issue lies.
    Any perspective from this forum would be appreciated.

    It depends. Are you surfing the internet more with LTE? Being that it is faster than Wi-Fi, some people were using it more, especially when they first received their iPhone 5 devices. Have you compared the data usage information from your iPhone to the usage information from VZW?

    The usage indicated between phone and Verizon is pretty close.
    I think how the phone is being used is a about the same.
    Before weren't close to a gig and now since upgrading we are consistently bumping up against 2 gig.
    We were waiting to do the IOS7 upgrade because of all the concerns; but went
    ahead with that to see if it helps. Now on IOS 7.0.3. Now carrier shows as Verizon 15.5.

    Did notice that 'messaging' data use increased by a MB without doing any texting. And messaging itself seems to be using a lot of data. 6.2 MB in just a couple of days.

    There may be something wrong with the phone itself??

    Since your on iOS 7, go into Settings, Cellular and scroll down and you can see usage per app. That may give you the culprit.
