If you have a bill from your current carrier, choose ‘Yes’ below, and we can base our recommendations on what you’re actually using. If you don’t have a bill, no problem. Just choose ‘No’, and give us your best calculation of your usage needs. We’ll take it from there.
Note: Enter your actual usage from your bill, not the amount that’s included on your plan.
Do you share your current plan with family members, or friends? Do you have additional services, like wireless hotspots? Include them as an additional line.

Select Settings on your smartphone, then select Data Usage. This will show how much data you have used during the current period.
Select Settings on your iPhone, then select Cellular. At the bottom of this list, you will see how much data you have used for the time period selected.
Depending on which app you use, streaming roughly 24 hours of music on Normal quality will use 1GB of data. HD or Extreme qualities will use more data.
If you enjoy watching YouTube videos while not connected to Wi-Fi, it is easy to use 1.5GB in just one hour.
Netflix is quite similar. In Standard quality, you can stream about 1 hour per GB.
With Autoplay turned off, you can tune in for about 8 hours per GB. Watching videos or uploading photos and videos uses more data.
