What the "Top 5%" translates to...

On day 29 of my billing cycle, I got the warning text from AT&T. Total usage? 4.9 GB on the nose.

Usage per month since the iPhone 3G has been between 3 and 6 GB. None of which I'd consider to be excessive.

I use less than 2GB..and I often tether...3-6 is excessive.

What kill is streaming radio and video...which, I do neither. I have an iPhone, so no need to stream music...I'll watch movies on my TV thanks.

I use 11. 3-6 isn't excessive. Public wifi, often (and especially) AT&T DSL, is utter $#!+. My job keeps me on the road. Netflix, at its lowest setting, uses approximately 333 MB per hour. Watch 3 movies a week, your at a gig just in Netflix alone. That's 4-5 GB a month there. Don't judge other people's use of their "unlimited-but-limited" data.

I'm not judging..2GB is more than managable though. 3GB is more than I'll ever need.

That wasn't aimed at you, sorry. It was for bluecoyote. I replied to wrong thread, I think. Opera Mini doesn't always hit the target.

I too got this message with 500 mb left. Of course i got flamed by all the att fanboys as a liar sooooo here we are. The whole top 5% is a pile of crap people. Anyone on their network is fair game. It seems like at&t it's really stepping up their game in monitoring data usage and trying to catch those tethering without their plan.
