iphone 5 how much GB data will I need?

Hi guys, thinking about getting a contract iphone 5 and have no idea how much gb of data I will need!

 

On a blackberry giff gaff informed me that I used 3.44mb of data last month, surley that can't be correct. I use the internet all day most days. Facebook, Whatsap, twitter occasional you tube playing.

 

Is is true if you have the blackberry add on you don't use much data?

 

I'm affraid if I sign up to a 1GB data plan on the iphone I will over run? What are your experiences with the iphone?

Warning: giffgaff will take some time to introduce nano SIM required for this phone. Data consumption depends on your usage.

This is something you should be asking of your new mobile network provider, who you plan to sign up with.
I am sure that giffgaff support is not really the best place to ask.

He's thinking of getting a contract iPhone, not with giffgaff.

Re: iphone 5 how much GB data will I need?

Theres no straight forward answer to how much data on smartphones as they vary depends on which apps require data and how much data that app uses. Im using an android and not sure 100% on how data works on the iPhone but im sure theres an on off button for data like the android I tend to turn mine off every now and then and if im home I use the WiFi its faster.

So you're saying this is off-topic as it's nothing to do with giffgaff usage :-0

Just a general warning in case... :-)
