    Its because texts use the voice network which disrupts data

    Are you in a 3G or 4G area?

    please stop

    Please, please, please dont play your ps3/360/other game system over your mobile data connection not only are you hogging a lot of the bandwidth for your area it also is probably one of the main reasons for the removal of grandfathered data plans a lot earlier than expected.

    mobile data is NOT a replacement for an ISP

    On 4g, you shouldn't have this issue, because you can surf and talk on 4g. It could be that you have a slow connection.

    Obviously you don't know how much data a 360 or PS3 uses for online gaming. Watching a Netflix show or movie or streaming music is considerably more.

    Its about 10 mb per hour on a very data intensive game. Watch a YouTube video for 2 minutes and you're gonna be well over that.

    just to test your theory i played just a 3 min game and 10 min game of twisted metal on ps3 through my phone and im at 5.18MB down 7MB up all that for less than 15 min so that puts me @ ~45-50MB/hour

    edit i agree netflix and streaming music use more data overall. still your phone should not be a replacement for a home ISP

    I play MW3, Assassins Creed Revelations and BF3 and they don't use that much data. This is on 360 though, not sure if its different, I was just assuming it would be similar
