This is following up on my previous iPhone post. The background to that post is that I had the phone for only two days when I received a scary SMS saying I'd already used 80% of my month's data quota. That's when I decided to try the data saving ideas I mentioned in that post.
So I got my first bill yesterday. Although it was pretty thick, it still wasn't very illuminating. But the key thing is that I managed not to go over my limit, and still I checked and sent email whenever I liked, checked and updated twitter whenever I wanted, and read as many blogs on NetNewsWire as I fancied. Although I really like the Google Reader on my desktop computer, right now I think NetNewsWire is the better choice for a data conscious iPhone user. It strips out a lot more stuff than what the Google Reader on the iPhone seems to.
So the first bill wasn't so bad. Maybe I won't need to be quite so frugal this next month.
