Thread: 750mb enough 3g usage per month?

    750mb enough 3g usage per month?

    Hi I just got out a contract with o2 and they provide 750mb of 3g usage and unlimited wifi. I was just wondering for the average user is 750mb enough?? Does the sat nav gps use a lot of the memory of 3g or does it work a different way?

    Depends on what gps program you use. Google maps will use 3G continously, while paid programs will come with the map pre-loaded and won't spend any data.

    I think 750mb is enough if you don't watch videos, or don't visit image-heavy websites (some websites will eat 3mb just from opening them)

    Also, I don't understand the unlimited wifi thing. What does o2 have to do with that?

    Do you have the phone then? If you do how much data does your contract give you? Unlimited wifi is like when your at home and you set the phone to use your wireless modem and i think its when you are using hotspots but im not too sure. I am going to be using facebook and other non heavy websites. I would watch the odd youtube video but i dont watch many at all

    O2 give you unlimited BT openzone wifi. Kinda like the iphone giving you 1GB wifi, it doesn't mean you can only use 1GB of wifi, but 1GB of BT openzone wifi.

    Is there an app or software that tracks how much data you have used in the month? Do you know how much data you roughly use per month? Im going to set it to work on my netgear internet when im at home so im sure 750mb per month will be just fine.

    Plus anyone interested in buying the Samsung Galaxy S, O2 are giving away a free 8gb memory card for free with every contract

    Make sure to find out when does the billing cycle start and end, so that you can input the start/end dates into 3G watchdog, which would then help you monitor it better too.
