    T-mobile iPhone fair usage policy

    I am currently on a fair use of 3GB and using it with my iPhone 4 - I keep going over my fair use...

    1) I don't understand how ?

    2) how do you lot on 500mb or 1GB cope ?

    Erm I use the WiFi tether when I'm at uni when I'm in lessons and when I'm online playing xbox (which I admit, I do way too much), watching youtube vids and the like. I'm using it now actually

    Im not sure if it is restricted, here is what I get:

    You can't wifi tether can you? I'm guessing your tethering your photo into ur pc and using mobile data?

    They sent me a text saying, between 4pm and midnight on browsing will be possible

    tmobile are the only company to not charge you for more, they moan if you go over it, but will never enforce any penalty for it

    When I mean WiFi Tether I mean using it as a mobile hotspot, it's just way too convenient

    Streaming music? 256Kbit mp3 works out at 32KB/s and probably around 35KB/s after overheads, so 2MB/minute, 120MB/hour, and about 3.8GB assuming an hour a day for a month. So that's where your 3GB is going.

    Thanks for taking time to do the maths mate - that's probably my problem then :L ... I have now loaded some albums onto the actual phone so I'll see how I get on tomorrow
