OKayyy..
So I'm definitely getting the white 16g verizon iphone 4s for my birthday this year, which is on christmas! I have a 32g ipod touch. Which i might sell to a friend for 130.

When i get the iphone i'll have a 4g data package. Only problem is.. i really don't think that is enough. They say on the website that 95% only use less than 2. I know i'll use a lot of data because i do on my ipod. I stream a lot of movies, music, etc. So what should i do?

sell my ipod or keep it even though i'm getting an iphone? orr.. sell the 32 g ipod touch and get an 8g (does that even make sense/is it a waste of money)? what kind of data plan do you have with your iphone and do you use a lot of data?

HELPP

Do you use most of your data when you have wifi? If so, no worries.

I have unlimted data, and VERY rarely go even close to 2gb in a month.

If you're connected to wifi, it will automatically use the wifi connection for any internet requests. It will fail BACK to cellular if necessary, but it will go wifi first.

Set up the wifi on the phone, you'll save a LOT of 3G usage that way!

Last time I had an iPhone, I remember when trying to download apps off the appstore, it would deny anything larger than 10mb to avoid excessive usage, forcing you to use WiFi or download via iTunes.

Plus, if you get unlimited data, you have nothing to really worry about.

Yes wifi saves tons of GB usage. If you plan on using the 3G for streaming a lot, i.e Netflix, then you will more than likely go over that limit. I used 1.65 GB of data in the first 5 days using Netflix on 3G. But streaming occasionally and using quite a bit of internet, I rarely go over 2 GB.
