Using less data?

We have been through several isp's in the past 4 years. We live in the country, have no cable or other hardware type service, and spotty cellular coverage on our street. I always close my windows, and turn my ipad off at night so that it doesn't do stuff at night.

We wound up with a cellular wifi, sharing 15 Gb between my phone, which history shows uses about 400k, DH's phone which uses 2 Gb, and then our home service. We have been on HughesNet for the past 2 years, and had a 10 Gb allowance.

So, my question is....does anybody know how to get the mobile version of this forum on my ipad? I would really like to be able to save the data......but I cannot figure out how to downsize....thanks!

If you're looking for an app, go to the itunes store and download the Pet Guide app:

It's supposed to work with this forum.

Have you also made sure your background app refresh is turned off? Even if you close your windows, I'm pretty sure certain things will continue to run in the background and update which can eat up a bit of data... You can also change your settings so that videos don't automatically play on apps like facebook (or as advertisements on other websites) because I know the auto play on videos ended up costing me a lot of data without realizing it.

I cannot find either of those settings on my ipad.....

But this is interesting....we ran out of our 10 gigs on HughesNet. Already. We have not even been USING HughesNet full time since we got the ATT....and we have had that since the first week of January.....and only used 1 (ONE) gig!!

Someone needs to file an FCC and FTC report on HughesNet....they are robbing people blind!!
