    I have a Nokia 920 and I have noticed my cellular data usage has climbed from around 3.5 GB per month to around 5.7 GB. I use wifi at my house and job and don't consider myself to be a heavy user except in one area: music. I almost never watch video on my phone and look things up occasionally. How about you?

    I have a cellular plan with 1GB free surf and I don't even use 500mb to be honest. Always on WiFi at home and when I'm out and about I hardly do heavy stuff such as streaming music/watching youtube. I surf the web and and all those normal things and they take close to zero data.

    15GB?! Is that just for you? Seems like an awful lot.

    Good thing I got Tmobile used 17gb of data last month alone, my gf used 5.2gb. 12mbps down ftw. I stream all music, YouTube for music that isn't in Xbox music, and watch a 24 min show of Netflix twice a day. Also goto sleep using i<3radio. Never use WiFi, work always has you put in password every 15 mins and the best internet in my area is only 3mbps down.

    I recently just purchased a 920 as well and have always had an "unlimited" data plan with At&t. I use to average about 2-2.4 gigs a month at most.
    But within the first 10 days of my bill cycle with the Lumia I somehow managed to consume 5gigs and over already, and then got the inevitable txt from At&t that I would start seeing throttled speeds.
    Worst part is that we don't have any way of seeing where or exactly what app is is consuming that much data, like I use to on my android.
    I still love this phone tho. Going to just have to pay close attention when I'm not on WiFi.
    As of right now I'm on day 13 of 28 in the bill cycle and I'm at 5.12gb

    That's strange. Even if I exceed my limit (1GB) I won't be charged anything, only thing that will happen is the download speed will be lowered drasticly.

    I have a 500mb plan Vodafone and I've never come close to using that, the most has been about 300mb.

    I should add that I don't feel limited by that, I'm not consciously conserving it or anything. There's just not a whole lot that I want to do online with my phone outside of browsing the web. If I'm going to be sitting still long enough watch a video then I'll be at home and on Wifi and using my computer instead.

    I'm constantly in the teens of GBs a month ever since I got my 8X. T-mobile unlimited nationwide 4G does wonders.

    I'm at 129 mb out of a 2 GB plan on day 15. I gave up my unlimited plan when I upgraded but apparently I didn't need it anyway for the way I use the phone.

    Now I feel like I'm crazy. My record was 100.3GB. Usually it's closer to 12-15GB per month. Just wanted to see how much I could go through. No tethering. Good thing T-Mobile has an unlimited plan!

    If you're using 100G or even 15G a month you must not do much else like work, exercise, house cleaning, eating.....

    Idk stream movies everyday and downloading Torrents can eat data up quickly. Also I stream my ultraviolet vudu movies and any new releases twice a week.

    I'm always in WIFI between school campus and home. Only use the data for car rides or when I'm snowboarding. Average about 500mb a month.

    I made it to 2gb once but that was when I streamed music on a 1000 mile road trip! Lol

    ps: I've got a 2gb LTE plan on Verizon
