    does being jailbroken take more data?? I jailbroke my sons phone. he had used only 40mb of 200mb plan. I downloaded a couple themes supposedly on wifi and now he is over his 200 mb limit and we got hit with another $15 charge.. why is that?? we were on wifi... does JB use more data, or do themes from cydia still use data even on wifi? really confused.. if this keeps up he won't be able to keep his JB... I am at 1.7 of my 2gb as well, but I know I downloaded 3 large themes at work over 3g so that is expected, but not home here on wifi.

    I'm JB and haven't noticed any more data usage than before.

    If he has apps like My3G then yea he can expect to get charged. I have a gig and I went over (tethering) but it wasn't that much of a charge for me.

    It could be that his WiFi either turned off at some point during the downloading process or simply timed out.

    Maybe that was it. Had to be. He usually never gets near 200mb. Thanks for your help!
