    Just switched from Unlimited to 250MB/month.

    Had 400MB total in two months and have been running it pretty hard.

    We'll see how it adds up in the long run.

    SETTINGS>GENERAL>USAGE to find out how much you've used on 3G.

    Since April 30th to date: 719 MB sent/6.9 GB received. I don't have a home wifi net and I have to remember to turn off WiFi or I'll connect to my neighbor's unsecured network.

    Interesting story here.

    Since I have bought the Ipad this has been my usage:

    Took a 250 mb plan with Bell (I am in Canada) That lasted 10 days. Really pushed it because I wanted to see the rate of data usage.

    Having had that experience I realized that I needed the 5 gb plan. Bought it. It lasted just under 4 hours. Yes, I said 4 hours. I t even thing that is possible.

    Of course I switched to Rogers. It has been 7 days so far and my usage is 93 mb.
    As a bonus I have been watching the WC matches for free on Rogers.

    I'm at 1.7GB - I streamed a couple of episodes of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" while in a waiting room last week.

    Just over a month of use, I have 9Mb sent and 48Mb received. Needless to say, I'm mostly within reach of WiFi ;)

    First month I was about 2gb, all 3G with Bell. Worked well. Called Bell a couple days ago to add another 5gb for $35. That was painful, taking about 20 minutes. CAR said system was slow, but I got the feeling he was a new rep. I'll see how next months topup goes. If as slow, I'm switching to Rogers.
