- Mobile data – how much in a month?
Depends on how much I’m travelling in a month. Very little travel and I’ll just scrape 512 Mb, a lot of travelling and I’ll probably hit the 1 Gb allowance.
I do try and use wifi as much as possible and have free wifi at premier inns, home, mates houses and The Cloud access points which does help a lot to my allowance.Posted 4 years agomiketuallySubscriber
The most I’ve hit is 2GB in one month. I have my phone set to send all photos up to Google+ and was using it as my main camera while on holiday for a week. This was just after Google unveiled their Auto Awesome feature, so I was firing off sequences of images to make it create animated GIFs.Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
1gb month is quite generous but that’s assuming you have good wifi and I recall from your original post that was an issue. I do app updates/downloads, photo uploads etc and buy music / movies via wifi so it keeps mobile usage down! Note you can do this via your computer and then sync the phone which minimises data. If you have bt internet they have lots of wifi hotspots as basically every bt router is a hotspot. Generally you can upgrade your contract at any time so you might try a limit to start with depending upon costs, personally next time I’d go unlimited as extra cost is limited these days with 3 who I will use.
Edit: I have my iPhone / iCloud setup so that all synching is done wifi only (so no mobile data) so when I take photos they are transferred to cloud and other devices only once I’m back on wifi, ie at home (or in pub, most of my wifi hotspots are pubs/bars with free wifi).Posted 4 years agopatriotproMember
It all depends on the availability of Wi-Fi ime.
You can also tweek your download settings to only download emails, etc when using WF.
I have an allowance of .5gb and almost reached that one month after using my phone to stream music at a BBQ. Never get anywhere near it normally.Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member
I use anywhere between 1 and 2 Gb, but seeing as I have unlimited I just leave data on all the time and use my phone for itunes radio, quite a lot of browsing, watching crap on youtube etc….
Don’t even bother switching it to wi-fi at home as I seem to get almost as fast connection on Three as I do with my rubbish TalkTalk broadband.Posted 4 years ago
