I just got a message saying I have used 75 % of my data . I recently switched from a Nexus to an iPone 6 about two weeks ago. How close am I to renewal, i.e.when does my data plan start at zero again? And what use or function is chewing up my data . Thanks

download and install the Koodo app on your iPhone or log into self serve. That will tell you your billing date, and how much data you have left.

To monitor and track your cellular data usage in iOS 7, first go into Settings Then tap on Cellular. If you scroll down a little bit at first you will see your total history. It will show your Call Time and total Cellular Data Usage. If you scroll down further, you will get an alphabetical list of all the apps have use cellular data. If you scroll all the way down at the bottom, you will see a button called System Services. If you tap on that, it will show you how much cellular data you are using for things like Messaging Services, Push Notifications, Documents & Sync, iTunes Accounts, Siri, Voicemail, Software Updates, Find My iPhone, Diagnostics and Apple ID Services.

One thing that might be using up your data quickly is I-messaging.

I-messages use data, and are not sms (regular text messages).

Androids use sms (regular text messages) and blackberry's mainly use bbm.

iMessage doesn't use a lot of data unless sending pictures/videos.
