Using IPhone data plan in UK
August 2, 2009 11:26 AM Subscribe
I'm going to Great Britain for two weeks and will be splitting time between London and Cambridge. I have an IPhone and have signed up to use ATT's international data plan while in the UK. The plan is limited to 20 MB of data. Also, I don't plan to use my IPhone to make phone calls while there. Just access the web to navigate around.

I'd like to get some tips from folks who have previously used an IPhone with an international data plan on how not to max out my 20 MB allotment. I read ATT's website and found some helpful hints including:
-Turn off push notifications for email and web apps.
-Avoid downloading large files (photos, PDFs, etc.) if you do check email.
I mostly plan to use Twitter and Facebook apps to keep in touch with people and share my travel experiences. But I would appreciate any lessons learned from the hive mind on how not to accrue excessive data charges.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
