    Streaming of video and music.

    These two are the biggest consumers of 3G data, unless you are downloading regular files via a 3G connection. Downloading images can be fairly intensive too, if the images are not optimised for 3G connections and file sizes are large.

    No wonder it runs down sooner than expected, thanks.
