    Data usage

    Hi guys,

    Im on the unlimited 3g data plan w/ vzw so im not as worried yet but, I know the unlimited will be capped sooner or later.
    My question is, im always on wifi but noticed my data usage increases by each day. Its only been a week into my billing cycle but im already at 2.35gb. Last montgs usage exceeded 10gb. How can this be?
    I don't browse that often and when I do its mainly over wifi.
    Any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    Ted

    Are there other people on your plan that use data? You must watch movies on it, or some sort of live streaming?

    Wow, 10 gigs. That's a lot. I'm always on my phone testing roms, a lot of the time on 3g and I don't come close to touching that. Do you tether?

    Im the only one on this data plan and I do watch movies and tv series (HBO go).
    I just thought if I was on wifi the data usage wont be monitored. Imagine if I was on the capped plan? That's alot of overage
    Charges.

    I recall an app called PhoneUsage that will show you a detailed breakdown of your data usage, by apps. So you will know how and when it is being used.
