Is 2GB of data enough or should I get more?Watch
I have never had a smart phone before.
My contract has 250MB and I don't use all that - then again all I use when I'm out is Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp; I don't use the web unless I really need to look something up.
hey that should be enough data, and that is plenty of minutes. I have 2GB myself. Although it depends on what you will use it for, certain apps use a lot more data than others. The Internet is particular drains a lot of data. However, depending on your service provider, you can buy extra boosts if you are running low on data. Hope this helps!
What do you think the data's for? That's like saying drinking in particular drains your mug of tea.

For example, I use mine as a hotspot a lot, and so 2GB gets me nowhere. I use nearer 10-15 per month from using it as a hotspot, as well as when the internet at my flat gets very slow, I just use the 4G...
2GB is quite small, try going for 4GB! I've moved this over to Mobile Phones for you, where it's more suitable.
If 2gb is just for the odd occasion and if youre using wifi alot more then it should be ok.

Thanks for your reply. Can you get data boosts on EE?
On EE you can buy additional data packs if you run out of data in a given month. Also, something that's good to know, is that on EE, if you run out of data, you can't use the Internet, without buying an additional pack. Which is a good thing, because otherwise you could rack up an expensive bill with data overage charges.
In regards to my input on the amount of data: Used to have a 500MB plan originally (Virgin Mobile), used between 200 and 300MB on an average month, and it really wasn't a lot of data. Was scared of going over.
Then changed to a 3.5GB data plan, this was better, used 1-2.5GB on an average month, again to be on the safe side.
Now on EE 4G 16GB plan, last month I used 2.82GB, which was the most amount of data I have used in a month, and with 4G access, it's much easier to use more data. Certain apps such as Speedtest, Tunein Radio, Youtube etc use data depending on what speeds are available, so faster connections (i.e. 4G) use more data than slower connections (3G).
Hope that helps!
