    Welcome to iMore blowabs

    Your cellular data will kick in when your out of wifi range but will reconnect automatically when it detects your router

    10gig is a lot of data and your new device is great at managing that data via cache of sites and use of GPS in maps. You should have no problems with that amount

    Let me take a guess... You're on AT&T? Over at Windows Central, several people were complaining about this same issue, that they were supposedly using up all this data even when they had cellular off and were only using Wi-Fi.

    Agree. 10GBs a month should be fine dude. I wouldn't be overly concerned.

    Thank You! ...everyone...No, MetalChick, I have VZ. Found out from VZ store cellular data usage isn't necessarily actual data usage. I gave up my unlimited account to save money with an Edge account to save some money. I only use 7.5 gb a month but I hotspot my SGN3, with Foxfi for free for 8 hours a month. I hope I don't go over 10gb. Anyone know of a free hotspot app[not for jailbroken iphone]?? thx

    As in creating a hotspot? That's where your data is going. Your phone is not using WiFi, it's CREATING WiFi and using your cellular data.

    Basically any mms messages that you send or receive don't go through wifi they will go through cellular and visual voicemail still uses cellular. Turn cellular off and you will notice that both services stop and visual voicemail grays out.
