    Default OT: iPhone 4, Data, Apps

    Hey everyone, i'm finally considering upgrading my iPhone (original), it's starting to show it's age in terms of speed and with iOS4 being completely unsupported it's time. Mine's unlocked and jailbroken so i've never actually had a data plan since Rogers (Canada) data plans are lame. So my question is what size of data plan do you have (ex. 500MB, 1GB), what's your primary use and is it sufficient.

    Also I was thinking about this scenario today. Let's say your browsing eBay on safari on the iPhone, would that use more data then using the eBay app on the iPhone? My thoughts behind this are that safari would have to load a lot more text and graphics from ads and what not, where as the app would be pretty stripped down to the bare essentials therefore loading less graphics and text.

    i got unlimited data (at&t), ~$30/month isn't bad for what it is.

    I need the unlimited for $30 or else I wouldn't think the iPhone would be worth it.

    5gb data, text is $20 for unlimited. soooo its $50 for text & data, plus you need to add the voice plan. i have 450 min @ $40. I get a discount thru my employer so i get i think 15 or 20 bux off.

    Im not joking, most people in the states pay anywhere from 100 - 140 for the iPhone. Keep in mind we only have one carrier, so its take it or leave it. Unless you go with T-Mobile, by unlocking your phone.

    My phone bill is about $320 a month for five phones, three of those being iPhones. If your around WIFI a lot that will decrease your data usage quite a bit.
