    Yes, definitely. Only videos would take more than 1GB

    You should most probably be fine with 1GB. It depends on how data heavy the websites you're visiting are.

    I think the TSR mobile site isn't too data heavy. Instagram uses a few megabytes though, and Snapchat does if you watch a video message. It's worth turning off mobile data if you can for games, as advertisements can use quite a bit of data over time, but generally just avoid YouTube and you'll be fine.

    I have got 100MB a month and I don't think I have ever used even half of that. I have wifi at work and wifi at home so really only use data when out and about and that's usually just checking emails/social media stuff like that

    Hi guys.

    I am due my upgrade in the next few days and I'm looking to get an iPhone 5C. I'm just wondering if 500MB of data will be enough for me. Personally, I've never understood the data uses. I'd mostly be on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I would use my internet browser sparingly and would use Youtube quite often. Is 500MB enough? Also, does using WiFi use up the data usage? I'd be grateful for any advice given.

    Thanks in advance!
    Mate, I pay a fiver for 500mb a month for Internet
    Why don't you get more lol?

    Just a wee update - decided to go with a plan that includes 2GB of data, I'd imagine this will be more than enough!
