Just curious, b/c I don't want to pay a HUGE data overage. I get my home phone voice mail sent to email, which I can access and listen to on my iPhone. Each attachment is about 800 to 900k. So far after 4 days with my iPhone I have received 10.4 MB of data, most of which is from email, only some from a WiFi connection. Just would rather be safe than sorry! Thanks in advance!

I reset my data every month on the 18th. This is the end of my billing period. Right now I have 16.6 mb sent and 125 mb received. There is no limit. Use it and enjoy.

I guess I'm just paranoid. I'm enjoying it so much, just did not want a surprise at the end of the month! I guess as long as I'm not useing my iPhone as a modem for my notebook, I'm good.

all iPhone data plans are truly unlimited. HOwever this is not the case with AT&T's other unlimited plans. They should be listed as "unlimited" in quotation marks because there is actually a 5GB limit imposed on them. This also holds true with their wireless data plans for laptops.

Oh, by the way, Gig 'em!

Enjoy the living hell out of it. I surf the web on my iPhone a lot, so never fear!

Smith is here!

Egad -- I can't believe I just said that...:)

yeah it'll be fine, and trust me, it's a PITA to get the iPhone working as a modem for your laptop, and the results just don't justify the hassel. EDGE speeds suck for tethering.
