Default iPhone people (or people who have phones with data)

How do you save data? I'm FREAKING out because I just got my iPhone yesterday morning and I got at text this morning saying I've used 50% of my data already. How can this even be? I was working and sleeping most of the time! I didn't realize you had to switch to wifi to save data, so that's been done, but I'm so scared that I'm gonna accidentally go over and end up owing a lot of money! I hate this! I was so excited for this iPhone and now I feel like if I actually use it, I'm gonna regret it! How can the data go that fast!? That doesn't seem right/possible!

Settings - General - Network - and then switch your Cellular Data to Off.

I have mine set at Off all the time unless I want to actually do something on it. That will stop any internetting from happening, because even if you just don't go on the internet, the Push Notifications and such will still gradually chip away at your data (at least that is how I understand it)

I don't even know what plan it is. It's the $30-a-month plan from Verizon.

Dang it, I didn't realize it didn't let me use wifi either. I turned it back on. I use the Internet on it all the time, that's why I got the iPhone, so I could get online w/it. Ahhhggg this sucks.

I have no idea. I use my phone all the time and have never gotten an email that I am close to going over.

You should call your cell company it shouldn't have done that over night. I stream videos constantly and only hit maybe two and a half gb a month.

I'm on my phone ALL the time and never gotten anything like that, but I have unlimited for $30/month on AT&T. I am "grandfathered" in because I got my iPhone 3G when it was still unlimited data. I don't even think they offer that anymore, which was the only reason I stuck with AT&T when I got my new iPhone 5, otherwise I would've got Verizon because there is a heck of a lot more LTE coverage for Verizon in my area.

I did get an e-mail once that asked me to use less data because I was using a lot.... LOL... but there's technically nothing they can do about it. Well I think they said it would slow down or something (speed-wise) if I went over, but I've just made myself remember to use the WiFi more often.

well the verizon site SUCKS and I can't see how much data you have. Click on No for Push Options, and shut off everything overnight.

If it's not letting you on wifi, and killing that much data, it's something wrong with the phone. I use my phone for absolutely everything, am always on the internet/using data, and I use less than 2.5gb/month.
