    I think I might know the culprit of these battery issues. Between Saturday and Today, I've used 100mb of data based on my online account summary. How is this possible, when it's on sleep mode 95% of the time? I used about 200 minutes and haven't downloaded any apps except for Tweed. I've turned off GPS/location services, wifi, bluwtooth, etc.

    Is this data usage normal?

    This is why they wanted unlimited data, thus the webOS. But who knows.. You sure its megabytes or megabites? (I'm not sure of the difference if someone wants to help me? )

    My usage shoes as 108,820kb since Saturday. I'm brand new to Sprint, so I know this should be accurate.

    Don't forget the webOS 1.0.2 upgrade.

    I did that over wi-fi. Wait, does the data usage include wi-fi data too?

    How do you find this out?

    It wouldn't include wifi use, since that activity would go through the cable/DSL provider.

    That's what I thought. Even my iPhone didn't suck up this much data during a 5-day span. And I never used wi-fi for my iPhone.

    I think he was on his account. I know that's the only way you can get your data info, more or less.

    I think you can call *3 or something for your phone, and get the info that way too.

    Also don't forget about your daily backup.

    I logged into my online Sprint account to find this information.

    I turned off all my back-ups on Sunday because I wanted to use Gmail contacts/calendar exclusively through Synergy. I only downloaded 1 app, which was Tweed. I don't care if I have to re-download.

    I think you mean the difference between megabytes and megabits.

    Essentially 8 bits=1byte

    A bit is 1 character (like the letter "A"), and 1 byte carries 8 bits.

    1 megabit = 1 048 576 bits

    1 megabyte = 1 048 576 bytes

    So...

    1 megabyte = 8 388 608 bits

    Another way to look at it is that there are 1024 of each "previous" step to get to the next step.

    For example, there are 1024 bytes in a kilobyte, and 1024 kilobytes in a megabyte.

    I'm sorry to get off topic...

    I'm pretty sure, though, that it is MB as opposed to Mb (lowercased b being bit)...though I didn't look at my own usage to confirm this.

    It should be megabytes. There are 8bits to a byte. Like the download was around 65MB, that should be around 524 megabits.

    1024KiloBytes=1MB, just threw this reference for some of the apps we download.

    I have you all beat:

    316,334 KB since launch date.

    i have barely used 30 MB, I guess being on WIFI both at work and at home really helps. I cant accomplish to much on the short drive to and from either.
