    I average 1GB/month.

    Unless I'm working on a server and it requires a little more than a quick change; or I'm working on a website, my iPhone has replaced my desktop. Even then though I have FTP with online file modifications, and an SSH client here on my iPhone so I still do most of my minor server/script modifications from my iPhone.

    Around 250MB for me but a lot of the time I'm using wi-fi so i think it'd be higher if I didn't.

    I use around 4gb a month...I use that phone all the freakin time. A lot of that is the fact I am always dowloading new apps and trying them out (along with all the updates) and this chews up a good bit of data.

    I put such a high usage, because it seemed like people do almost everything with their iPhones. I am really surprised at how many people use wifi and not 3G.

    Usually I use maybe 2-3GB. Last month it was nuts. I used 9+GB last month. Most of that was tethering.
    I wasn't trying to abuse it, but I had no internet at the place I was staying and the 3G signal was perfect. So, every time I used my macbook pro, I hooked it up to my iPhone 3GS. It worked great.

    I played a game of Madden 10 over Wifi with the PSP (not too much data use doing this).
    Downloaded 1 episode of Lost via iTunes.
    Podcaster was used in the background on the weekends.
    Normal Email, web usage and Apps downloaded.

    What killed me was when I watched a movie via Amazon, one via netflix and surfing on the web via my Macbook is a absolute hog.

    I got my bill and I was charged no overage...... But, I won't be doing that anytime soon.

    I used on average 500 MB of data a month. That isn't including WiFi, which I am almost always on. I also don't tether, yet I think that 500 MB is a pretty high amount of mobile data usage.

    Well I chose the 5GB or more but AT&T doesn't send me threatening letters, mainly because I am on Rogers. I have 6Gb plan and I use almost all of it each month.

    For the past 20 months I prob use about 200-250 megs total, I believe that's with wifi but since I downloaded the Air Video app I could see an increase to about 1.5 gigs a month, I'll prob need to buy a batter pack first.

    I'm new to iphone... just a week now with the unit and i try and use most of my data and downloading apps with my wifi to save upgrading to a bigger data plan. been with blackberry for past 6 years and lets say the device isn't setup to do the type of data usage the iphone can do! i will prob be around 300-400mb a month.

    Usually less than 150mb. I am on wifi at home and at work. Also I sync all my tv shows to my phone so have never streamed much.

    Usually around 600MB.

    I really thought I used a lot more. Only when I am on my MyWi 4.0 do I use more. Mainly because I watch movies while at work. Even while watching Netflix I don't use that much data. Most I've ever used was 4.1GB. Never gone over 1GB ever since then.
