As we are all peeled to our smartphones these days just wondering how much data everyone is using..

I have been averaging 8gb a month for the last few months..

I'm on corporate shore spend so it's part of a big Corp deal I have no clue about..

So what's your averages. ????

My cap is 10GB with Spark.

 

I have a 2nd phone with dual-sims for VFNZ and 2Degrees. If I get close to my Spark cap, I fire up the wifi hotspot on my other phone. I have about 14GB "carried over" with 2Degrees at the moment.

I pay $9 month & get 100mb/30min/unlimited txt. Usually I don't use the 100mb of data each month.

Usually 2.5gb on my phone, 1-2gb on my tablet. Think I need to go up a plan.

About 4GB monthly. That's my 2.5gb allowance and a 1.5gb top up most months. I could cut that in half easily if I wanted to though. I just choose to have my iPhone apps, updates and services use the cellular connection when away from home WIFI.

Was on a 500mb combo, have no dropped back to Skinny $9 for 100mb combo. Not playing Ingress anymore helps, and limit myself to email etc. Annoying to constantly toggle mobile data though..

I get 500 MB with Skinny and it rolls over. It's very rare that I actually hit 500 - I have Wi-Fi at home and work, and when I'm "out and about" then I'm often not messing around on the phone too much.

Probably around 200 - 400MB per month, I guess.

None. It's still priced far above the value I'd get out of using it.

I do not honestly know. Bill comes in. Bill gets paid. I don't usually look closely unless the total they want is way off what I expect.

 

The VF iPhone app throws me out every time they update it and I can never recall the login so I can't even look it up for you. Every time I try and reset it I get some trite message "Houston we have a problem - call 777" and life is too short for that so I deleted the app.

I get 500mb with the Vodafone $19 monthly prepay combo and find it inadequate for someone who commutes to work each day. I don't stream videos or music but still find that just by using Facebook and some general browsing (ie, news, forums) on the bus/train to and from work each day (about 25-30 minutes each way, not using the phone the whole time) the data is gone in under half the month so I then end up buying more if I'm desperate or just going without until the combo renews for the next month.

 

In contrast I barely make any calls so always have almost all the minutes left to carryover so have several hundred minutes I won't use at present. Would love a combo deal with more data and less (or even no) minutes. Something like 800mb and 30 minutes at the same price would be nice.
