I have the iPhone 4 and I was wondering what are some easy ways to lower the data usage on your phone? With the way I'm going now my past bills have been at least $62. Thanks!

Well, one way is to stop using it. You can have wifi on when you're in a wifi area.

1. Not sure what plan you have.
But you can work things out with the CAN Data 1GB Unltd min $60 that Koodo offers.
- Unlimited Canada wide calling, international texting and 1GB of data.

2. Do you have wi-fi at home?
One easy way to reduce data consumption is using wifi instead when available. So when you get to a restaurant, university, home you better enable your wifi! YAY


Or you can download the following app → https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/onavo...

How Onavo Extend Works
Onavo Works by routing all Internet-related actions through its servers, where data is compressed before being sent to your device. This is similar to what RIM does with its BlackBerry devices, using server-side compression to reduce the total amount of data transmitted. The Opera Mini Web browser also uses server-side data compression, although it only tackles activity happening within its own app. Onavo works across apps, including Safari, Mail, and so forth.

Since all your data is being routed through Onavo's servers, privacy, security, and scalability should be of concern. So here's what we know: Onavo's system runs on Amazon's EC2 cloud servers. Its servers are protected by multiple layers of security, and nothing is actually stored on them except for aggregated and anonymized metadata, such as what types of apps are being using. That information is used to help illustrate your data usage and savings, as well as for research to help improve the service.

Stop using data to download apps, music, large files, etc. Do not stream or upload.
Reserve all this for wifi.

Turn off auto-updates and remember to turb off data on your phone when you are not using it

You could also update to iOS 7.

Once done under settings -> Cellular you have the option to limit what apps have access to cellular data.
