    How much Data do you burn through in a month? Time to find out who the hogs are!

    I average about 7.6 gigs a month, with my highest month in the last year being 16.8 gigs.

    Holy buzzing beehive! I use wifi all the time, so I never have to worry. When internet was down for a week, or when I was mostly out and about, 300mb. I have a flex plan which goes up to 5GB, currently it's @ 1GB. Thank goodness for BIS/data compression and the fact that I do text-only browsing.

    I am completely mobile, all the time. I drive truck, and rely on my Berry for everything.

    I'm at 134MB right now.. (billing cycle started 9/22). I usually average between 100 - 200 MB's per month, at most. I do mostly BBM, Facebook, Twitter. Now with my 9930, I'm starting to use the browser more often. I bet my data usage will increase.

    WOW! I'd like to know what you do on your phone. How is it possible for you use that much data? I still haven't been able to get past 2GB. I think the most I have ever had was somewhere around 1.5GB.

    Is that with a BB? I'm in mine all day plus an hour of streaming either BBM music or Pandora and I'm right below 2gb every month.

    I'm 90% of the time on the mobile network, I hardly use wifi like barely in case I really need too.. Been using a blackberry since 2007 in all of the years I've never gone over 300mb NEVER!! I'm constantly browsing forums, facebook, bbm, sending photos (mms) and emailing.. I also have a unlimited data plan through sprint, lucky for me I got my Curve 3G back in October 2010 so I don't have that surcharge of $10 for premium data on my plan.. :-)

    Maybe 800mb to 1gb, the pathetic thing is that I am on an unlimited data plan. I really have to step up my game!

    Wow! I only use about 500mb. Paying for unlimited data as well. What do you use to track your data usage, an app or just looking at your bill each month?

    Haven't voted yet. Is this for just using your phone or that plus tethering, bridging etc?

    I use my bill and a data counter app. Most of the time they agree, though sometimes the app shows higher.

    As for what I do, I'm on my BB all day, every day. I use BBM Music, ATT Navigator, Uverse Live TV, Pandora, PodTrapper with 2 or 3 one or two hour podcasts a day with half of them being video, Nux Downloader and Dropbox to send and download images for theme building, and sound files to compose music with, an ftp client to put finished themes up to my server for my beta testers to download ota, Trapster, and send photos to my daughters every day.

    I rarely tether, when I do, its to make sure an email gets saved to my laptop, and that's maybe once or twice a week.

    My hourly usage is astronomical as well, averaging almost 20 hours a day.

    My data usage is pretty low. Mostly BBM and incoming email. I rarely browse. Have some apps installed, but only a few.
