Thread: Iphone data usage

  1. #1

    Default Iphone data usage

    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking of getting an iphone for christmas, looking at new bundled data plans from SH & M1, 12 gb is a lot.

    But are we able to know how much data we have used so far ??
    Is there a setting that i missed out reading from Apple's webby.

    Any iphone users able to advise?

    So far only Singtel has the feature to control your usage by monitoring.
    Checkout:
    http://home.singtel.com/bbmobile/

    Singtel also has its own iPhone app to check via iPhone itself.

    Watch out for data roaming while overseas, it will cost you a fortune.

    Not sure about the other plan, I called Sintel cust svc and they said the data roaming will cut automatically when using other telcos, i tried that on my last few trips to Msia and it did...so no worries.

    Frankly speaking, with 12GB plan, IMO you don't need to check data usage any more, you won't go that far.

    What will you normally do when you get the data plan? Online gaming with iPhone? Surfing Internet? IM?

    For me, I used to be on ST 50GB plan until I downgrade to a 1GB plan now. The reason is simple. I only surf net, forums & IM. Even with alot of apps downloading from Apple Store, I couldn't hit more than 500mb monthly. Bear in mind that any apps more than 10mb requires you to download using a wifi connection .

    My 2 cents worth.

    you'll burn out the iphone wifi antenna or kill the batt before you hit 12GB monthly.

    i thought that the telcos SH n M1 cap the data usage to a certain amt ?

    for eg Sh its at $48 iirc, does it means that u cannot use anymore after that , or its unlimited usage at that price for the rest of the month ?
