    That will depend on what your going to use the phone for? It would not even be close for me b/c I download Apps and Music from iTunes.
    How do you plan on using the phone?

    I will be using the internet, email and texting. What do you think? Should I get at least 1g of data.

    The internet uses up a decent amount of data. So does the maps app and a few other usefull things so I'd definitely get as much as you can afford. I have unlimited data and use it a ton.

    When choosing a plan ask if your able to adjust it later if you find you not using it that way you thought? This may allow you to increase it or decrease the data plan without having penalties.

    If you go over it can get expensive so be careful.

    Better to have more than you needed. Go for unlimited and see how much you use it for the first month. You can always adjust your rate after you see your bill. WiFi use does not count towards your data bill count.

    I would definitely try and get the inlimited. They're so many apps available that you might start using data more than you planned to.

    This is my opinion and I think almost every app for the iPhone need Internet most of my games needs a data for them to work good. Is your iPhone jailbroke? If so you gonna need a good data plan to trick out your phone ( unless you get wifi ) but yea I'll recomend to get the unlimited plan

    Here is a nice Chart that explains Data usage and shows you what you may need for Data.

    ive owned my iphone since january and have been tethering to my laptop and have only managed to use 1.5 gb download and 92 mb uploaded. If you dont do any big time downloading of pictures and music you should be ok with 500mb a month. You have to be on wifi if your downloading anything big, unless your on youtube 24/7 you should not come anywhere near the 500mb limit.

    • Inspiration is like a lost sock. When your searching you can never find it, and when it appears, you least expect it.
    • There are no exceptions to the rule that everybody likes to be an exception to the rule.
    • Ideas are the factors that lift civilization. They create revolutions. There is more dynamite in an idea than in many bombs.
    • Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.

    That makes me think of something too if you didn't know already. Wifi use doesn't count towards your network data use so if you're in areas where you have wifi access definitely use it.

    So my question is do you really have a choice? Or is this an unlocked Iphone? With At&t there is only unlimited.
