    Are you going to play it 5 hours a day? I can't imagine it will take that long to collect and assign jobs to characters. I have 2GB on my phone now. Before that it was unlimited data and it still never went over 2. You should be ok.

    okay so im thinking of getting data on my phone, i dont have much to do at work...


    and so my question is, how much data per month do most of you go through playing tsto?

    i would be playing about 5/hrs a day mostlikely.


    please give how much you use and how much you play... ish.

    the game doesn't use much data, per se. The only substantial data you download is with an update.

    Again, when it comes to just TSTO, you are not using very much data. Web services, text messaging, etc... that's a whole other ballgame.

    What specifically are you going to be doing with TSTO?

    If you're just logging in once and playing for 5 hours, that's not going to use much data, just one sync down and sync up.

    If you log in every 30 minutes, that's more data.

    If you visit 100 friends a day, that's another 100 syncs down and syncs up.

    So while the game doesn't use a ton of data, you can very easily blow through the 300 MB that the lowest tier plans on some carriers offer.

    Ok but Tapped Out is in no way responsible for that much data. You should look more into what is causing this in your phone usage and see if there's a simple change you can make without paying more money.

    The game does really kill your battery dont it :lol: If you wanna drain your phone down to give it a nice big re-charge then put Tapped out on it will drain the battery double quick :lol:

    I'm unlimited on my 3G usage so i dont really take any notice of what it uses, tbf tho i very rarely use 3G unless i have to im wifi where ever i go normally :)

    I've just made a thread about this forum and its loading issues http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9693347.page

    My screen is taking long enough to load at the moment with all the videos and images and thats on wifi, so I dread to think how long it would take on 3G and how much data it would go through :(

    That's what I've noticed as well. If I have a full battery but am low on data, I'll play TSTO because its the least data-draining. If you sync constantly it will use more data but nothing drastic.
