    I used about 1GB per month on my HTC Arrive and still on my Lumia 900 when I switched carriers and upgraded. Now that I have a 920 I use around 2 GB per month. I still have the same mix of WiFi and cellular. I believe WP8 uses more data but I'm not sure what is doing it.

    EDIT: I have a 4GB share plan and my wife uses under 500MB on her iPhone 5 so the increased usage does not affect me.

    I average 2.5/3 every month. I am on my wifi at home, but anywhere I go I use phone for streaming music, netflix, maps etc.

    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!

    How do you use so much without tethering!

    I use on average 5-6gb a month. I have four lines on a mobile share plan with AT&T. I download a lot of drivers and software patches for work when I am out and about. LTE is a godsend for me.

    I'd like to know how you can actually use all that on your phone - especially without tethering! Heck, I tethered a Netflix movie once via T-Mobile and it still only clocked in at around 300-500mb for a 2 hour movie. How on earth are you doing that?

    By myself I can do 2GB without WiFi.

    Thankfully I live/work in a WiFi heavy area, so even with two lines I only do between 500-800 a month.

    The secret to using 100 gigs in a month? I run Google music as much as I can (and all my music is in .flac so it's relatively uncompressed.). Add to that downloading everything I could possibly think of onto an SD card, and there ya go. Lots of multitasking. Killed my battery though.

    I am almost at the end of my first month with Verizon. Three lines have used only 2gb of our 6gb data plan! I do not stream Netflix or Hulu nor have I tethered my laptop. Just average usage.

    I have 5gb/month and I regularly run up against the limit. (I've even gone over a couple times) I don't have a WiFi connection at home or work (I'm not in am office setting) so my phone is my only internet access. Hopefully soon I'll get broadband at home and then I can start to use less of my data...

    ok, now you ppl are just showing off.

    I find it difficult to use 4GB a month and HSPA+ is most we get from Vodafone where I live. (the price is a dollar for 1 GB)

    80GB or more on cellular .. holy jeezus

    I have an unlimited plan with GiffGaff in the UK (they give you a 3gb allowance per day) which is near impossible to go over unless your an *****. Plus its at a bargain price at 12 per months included in the package is unlimited UK txts and 250 anytime mins which i rarely use. Great deal :)

    I have the $60 T-Mobile 2.5GB plan and even with me being on it half the night at work, I only use about 1.3 GB a month on average. I don't do a lot of streaming though. Just a YouTube video now and then.

    Most of web surfing is just downloading text and images, and compression algorithms have gotten much better. I find myself only using 400-600 megabytes on average, with Pandora streaming to my car.

    you guys are so lucky to have GIGABYTES of data to use!
    i only have 300 MB LTE from AT&T and i regularly goes to about 270. last month went over at 339 MB and got charged $20 >:[
    you could increase to the 3gig or 5gig plan, with the 5 gig plan which I have I can tether with my surface pro.

    I normally use 2-3gigs a month.

    Me personally, I use about 1 GB. I'm still on the Share Everything Plan with my parents, and it works out pretty nicely. We have a total of 8 GB shared for all of us. I think the highest we've ever gone is 2.5 GB. It's pretty great.

    yes, but without tethering i'd say about 8GB as when I go out with friends we use my connection for youtube

    I have one line (my line) on my Verizon Share Everything 4GB data plan and use about 2.5GB per month on my Nokia Lumia 928, on Wi-Fi when I am home. I use about 50GB per month on Wi-Fi due to XBOX Music Pass, Netflix streaming....

    I have a 1GB/month 3G data plan out of which I use around 800 to 900MB. All the data usage is mostly because of app updates. I do not stream music or videos at all. Just browse and surf the net a little.
