Iím getting ready for my first road trip with my new iPad mini.
My question is about how to conserve 4G data usage.
I will be signing up for a Verizon 1 gig data plan for a month, & only enable it when Iím not near a Wi-Fi hot spot.
I want to be sure when Iím using the 4G connection I donít have apps behaving badly & using up my data allotment.
Iíve read about the standard things saving like donít use iTunes or stream movies, etc. My email accounts are set to only poll when I ask for it.
I guess Iím looking for the less than obvious things to conserve 4G, like is less data used checking Gmail accounts via the web site or using the email app ?
Is there a way to stop informational apps like the weather channel from polling for data while on 4G?
How much data does a ďfreeĒ ad sponsored app use. I realize I cannot use the app while on 4G, but am curious.
