network researchers Arieso claims iPhone 4S users are burning through their data twice as fast as regular iPhone users. The culprit? Siri. Who knew that Siri was such a hungry little data leech?
It was bound to be revealed. Constantly pinging Apple's server with Siri over 3G is finally straining wireless carriers. As if iPhone users didn't already eat up a ton of data sending HD videos, high-resolution photos, downloading apps, streaming video, Siri's making things worse.
Well, that is if you're with a carrier that enforces a data cap or don't have a grandfathered-in unlimited data plan.
So, anybody who's on AT&T's 2GB data plan or Verizon's 2GB plan might want to watch how they're using their data. Sprint iPhone 4S users are safe — for now because they've all got unlimited.
Double your functionality … and double your bill? This never would have happened when Steve Jobs was alive!
