I just bought an iPhone 5 (Verizon). I like everything about it, except for how easy it is to blow through a tiered data plan on 4g.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to reduce this data usage? I already tried using an app called Onavo, but a speed test reveals a dramatic drop in speed (Even when on Wi-fi).

How much does you data plan cover? The phone itself shouldn't blow through a lot of data monthly, it's just the matter of controlling yourself.

Well, if you turn off the auto synch then you could have lot of data.

I was on an iPhone 5 for a year and now a 5S - I haven't had any issues with using too much data but I am usually near wifi.

 

Even the few times where I've streamed music when not around wifi - the usage wasn't too bad.

 

Sharing 10GB of data between 7 lines, we usually have 50 to 70% left at the end of the billing cycle but a few times we've been down to 10% or close to going over - but not due to an iPhone.
