Hey everyone,
I hardly use the internet on my mobile. I don't have an email account on it, so that isn't using data..

The other day I visited 5-6 OCAU pages, 1 whirlpool page, and then looked up 2 sets of directions in the Maps app, and it used like 8MB of data.. Is that normal?..

Is there anything that could be using data in the background?..

I never open Cydia or App store unless I'm using wifi, and only browse the net for like 20mins per day and use an average of about 8-9MB/day..

Thanks

Ahh, you'd be amazed at how bloated websites have become these days. I cruise 200/300MB a day just doing normal surfing on my desktop internet connection. No youtube or anything.

Also I find the iphones "MB counter" to be wildly inaccurate. I check on my optus page and its often 1/3rd what the iphone thinks it is.

If you're with optus... take your internet usage $ amount, add 10% and divide by .35, that'll tell you how many MB you've used up.

I say that's normal. Don't worry though, I have two push email accounts set up, one POP email account, and I browse the internet quite a bit everyday on the train and the max I have used in a month is 250 MB.

8MB insane? That sounds about right, for what you, did to me.

Even when I had an incorrect APN set, the iPhone usage meter said that I had chewed through 200MB of data when I was Roaming. Checked my3-online and had used less than a MB.

I agree, OCAU has alot of pictures on it etc.
