    I went through 3 gb of data usage in 9 days. Called AT&T and apple and they were no help. Anyone else have this problem with AT&T iPad 2?

    Did you go through that much data or are you being charged for data you don't think you consumed?

    I think there is an issue. I have had my iPad 2 since it came out and have always had 2 gb and never ran out. I ran out on sept 20th and got 3gb and ran out again on the 29th

    Great article, Admiral. I just got my iPhone 5 yesterday so I'll have to keep an eye on my data usage.
