How To Look Up AT&T Data Usage For iPhone

Published June 2, 2010

att-logo-smThis morning AT&T Wireless announced new pricing options for the data plans used on smart phones, such as the popular iPhone. Engadget has a really good summary of the changes and there are tons of stories on this announcement on Techmeme.

In summary, you can:


  • Keep your unlimited data plan for $30 per month
  • Go with a 2GB plan for $25 per month
  • Go with a 200MB plan for $15 per month
  • Add tethering for an additional $20 per month but you need the $25/2GB plan for that


How do you determine which plan to select? For that, you need to look up your past data usage on AT&T. Here are steps on how to see this data:

Step One: Login to AT&T Wireless's web site

Step Two: Click on the "Usage & Recent Activity" link at the top, here is a screen capture:

Step Three: Click on the "View Past Data Usage" in the middle of the page, here is a screen capture:

Step Four: You should be taken to a usage graph with filters, the usage graph URL is att.com/view/analytics.do?reportType=dataUsageTrend and the chart looks something like this:

Now, if you are under 2GB per month, you'd want to save the $5 per month with the $25 plan. If you are under 200MB you would want to save even more with the $15 plan. But if you plan on adding tethering, you'd have to make estimates on how that would change your usage.

The data conversion for this chart is 1 Megabyte (MB) = 1024 Kilobytes (KB); 1 Gigabyte (GB) = 1024 MB.

Happy mobile surfing and mobile app usage!
