    I have the wifi plus 3G plan. Does iCloud use any of the 3G data that I pay for each month?

    I'm sure it will if you set to back up or access iCloud off of WiFi. How much...hard to say.

    Lol. My dad asked the same question about skysports on th ipad2 over wifi, as BT sent him the warning emil about his broadband usage. Data costs someone somewhere all the time :)

    You need to be careful when and where you synch to the cloud. I read where people with 16Gb devices mistakenly synched over 3G and immediately incurred overage charges since they went through their 2Gb monthly cap.

    If you are not connected to wifi then yes it is coming off your monthly plan.

    But if your wifi is set to on, on your phone and you are using a wireless network from home, school, friends house, etc. then it does not come off the plan you are paying for.
