    On my iPhone I used about 2GB a month. I have 4 days left on my cycle and i have only used 1.2Gb on my new Android phone. I also used the internet more extensively with it as I had WIFI connectivity problems. I think my iPhone was using too much data.

    This is kind of interesting. My wife has a new samsung s5 and she doesn't use nearly as much data as I do. It could be the YouTube I was streaming but I know for sure she's on Facebook all the time along with streaming music for at least 4 hours during the day.

    Yep, another friend went from an Android device to an iPhone 5s and found the opposite. He was going over his limit.

    Take a seat, you may be a little shocked!

    I have a genuine unlimited data package from my mobile phone sim card, so I tether all that I want each month. For an average small cost with 3 Mobile, I use it on my tablet and pc, daytime or the evenings if and when I have the time. I have gotten rid of my UBS dongle and home broadband setup when I saw that I didn't need them anymore which is a huge plus.

    I stream full documentaries and movies mostly when I have the time; view You Tube clips, BBCiplayer on occasions, listen to Spotify streaming, web surf, email, multi-task with word-processing and internet together, make short videos and transfer via cloud services, and research on-line. My minimum on the package has been 7GBs in my first month; often I do 25-30GBs a month, and have accumulated 45GBs and 61GB each, achieved over a monthly cycle also.

    It is a rolling contract I hope to use as long as I can, as finding and using the internet now can be done anywhere, and is just a mobile phone device away at no extra cost.

    Gratitude? You bet! Yes-sireee!!

    Ranges from month to month. Sometimes I'll use 3, but I've used up to 9. I average at around 6GB a month though. I'm always on Twitter and other social media, selfies be darned, and general web browsing and streaming from Google Play Music.

    I have a 3gb plan with t-mo but on average I use about 1-1.5gb a month.. I'm always on Wi-Fi at home so that helps to keep my data low..

    I keep my 5S on cellular 24/7 because it really doesn't use anymore battery life than on WiFi.

    I have unlimited data on T-Mobile. Most months I use between 5-20GB. The most I ever used was 76GB and that was with tethering to my iPad to do everything just to see how much I could use.

    Close to 5gb per month. I have an AT&T "unlimited" plan, and they throttle me over 5gb. I stream radio throughout the day over LTE, and I watch video, download apps, podcasts and app updates when I'm on wifi at home. I don't have access to wifi at work.

    Wow... Most of the major ISP's here in Canada have a **** fit when you use more than 500 GB with your home internet... On mobile you would be lucky if they don't cut you off after 25 GB of usage...

    I'm doing that if I switch to T-Mobile later this year. That mod must be famous right now. There were only 2 people that ever did that AFAIK.

    That's harsh. I probably use over 1TB of data on my home internet even if it's 2.0 MBPS download. I'm going to see if there is a way to measure the amount of data used... I don't see the point in having a limit for home internet usage.

    For my iPhone 5s, I still have unlimited AT&T data, grandfathered in, and use between 7-8 GB/month. On the iPad, I pay for 3GB for $30/month, also with AT&T, and usually use between 2-2.5 GB. I'm much more careful and selective what I use on the iPad, since it's limited. For instance, I don't stream any video by default, like HBO GO, Netflix, or iTunes movies/TV shows from the cloud, unless I make exceptions.

    Dpham and me talked about it so he challenged me to test T-Mobile's network. My cycle reset on the 6th... So far I am at... (see below).

    We will see how a month goes!

    We have a 10GB shared family plan through AT&T and truth is in a year and a half we have gone over twice and that was only when we were traveling in the car and my son watched videos for 8 hours on the road. I personally use < 2GB/month.

    I have a 6 GB/month plan.

    I typically use about 2-2.5GB/month.

    Facebook, Twitter, email, and occasional music streaming.

    I also often tether my iPad off my phone when I'm out and bored, or in cottage country, so I must burn a decent amount there.
