    It will only use your data by downloading it in the first place (which if it's over 50mb I don't think you can do it on 3G) however i would try to use a wireless broadband connection then you can download your movies and watch them later on your iPad without using your 3G data. Hope this helps.

    I understand that, when you purchase a movie from iTunes, the movie will be saved on your device. When watching it, the movie will play based upon the saved movie file on your device. If you are concerned about this, turn off all your wireless connections and see if you can still watch the movie.

    The data use occurs during the download of the purchased or rented content from iTunes to your device.

    Hello. I am glad to see that you are getting your question answered.

    I am writing to tell you I merged the two threads you started today on this same topic. Making more than one post not only fragments the conversation and makes it hard to follow - it's against the forum rules. Please keep any follow-ups, discussion or updates on this topic to this thread; do not start another. Thanks for your understanding.
