Lets say you go to a website with a header image that is 50KB. Then you browse to a page inside that site which also has the same 50KB header file. What will this show on the bill? Would that count as 50KB total or 100KB if it has to load it twice?

Good question not sure. Maybe someone who currently has a cingular data plan can help you. I would think that if you went back to the same EXACT page it would only charge you once.

Yeah.. I would hope it would only charge you once.. I'm pretty sure it would. But I dunno for sure.

I don't think what we are talking about has anything to do with speed.

I think that would depend on how the page was coded and whether or not it had to pull from cache locally or pull from the web server. Any data that goes across the network would be billed by the kb unless you have an unlimited data plan.

FYI, email counts towards data on Cingular/AT&T.

How much do unlimited data plans go for on average anyway?

I'll probably go bare minimum on the phone minutes myself...I mostly just want to use it as an ipod / web browser :p

Cingular's unlimited data connect plan is $44.99. You can view all the plans on their website.
