    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?

    What are you typically doing on the iPad?

    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

    Again, what do you typically do on your iPad?

    Do you stream any video on your iPad?

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