    Streaming and/or downloading video & movie files.
    Downloading apps will also use up data on the data plan, some apps can be 100 MB in size or more. Also, updating apps will use a lot. Apps don't "update", the older version is deleted and a newer version is installed.

    +1... and yes, downloading apps uses a little data but nowhere near compared to streaming/dowloading videos.

    Yes! I've got a couple of 120+ MB apps and they wish to update all the time. I see little difference after the update (except maybe for advertising changes) and it really bugs me how these app providers are so smug with their mega-updates. I wonder if Apple demands entire app downloads for whatever reason. Seems to me like software programmers could provide for "incremental updates -- unless Apple objects....

    Navigation can use more data than the average application as well. Depends if your taking a 10 minute trip or a 10 hour trip.

    Other than that, I agree with streaming music and video.. (Hours of Pandora is a no no)
