    I can see my Sent/Received. I've been checking this after I do anything with Edge. Is this not accurate to your billing?
    ya edge i would really stop using your data while the "E" is on the front of your phone.. wait till the wifi sign comes up... btw... how long have you been using the Edge which isn't recording any data transfer? That is why I called rogers RIGHT away, I know it was sending and recieving data and it didn't show on my edge data either. Maybe that gage is not compatible with Rogers?

    well of course your getting ripped on your data plan if you try and do Google maps and browse full sites on the go..I just use the edge to get my mail...that shouldnt be more than 5MB a month, if it is, youre getting to many office jokes with embedded movies

    reread my post.

    I was asking why their usage amounts were a surprise - as in, can't you monitor it in settings. I then wondered out loud if the iPhone wasn't accurately measuring the Edge data. According to Lardnapkin it's bang on, so I guess people should self monitor where they're at.

    so what you're saying is that we're gonna get screwed even though our EDGE useage shows "0 bytes" sent and recieved??

    I always get an error when EDGE takes over from WIFI, and I thought that meant it wasn't working, which made me happy so I left it alone...

    I deleted all my EDGE settings. I am definitely not going to pay through the ass for data here.

    I'm thinking of adding the $5 / 5mb option to my plan.

    Anyone use Gmail with their iPhone? I get about 10 emails a day and send about 5. Is that enough?

    And Lardnapkin: 200 emails a day...the iPhone's mail app is horrible for managing those amounts of email messages. How do you manage to delete/set to read for all of them?

    Settings>General>Network>EDGE> Wipe out all the info there.

    That's stopped my data transfers, but 800kb got through the day after I unlocked the phone. Dang. That's going to be like $100 or something.
    Can I sync my iPhone to my Newton?

    Yea, Canadian providers have THE WORST data rates around. I refuse to pay, and use wifi when I can. Luckily I'm usually near wifi, and I don't need my data that immediately.

    Once Rogers carries the iPhone, the rates will drop. It's only a few years away!
