@anon17:matrix.orgHenry Musk * I need some help. I usually never use mobile data. However, I will go on a vacation for 3 weeks. I want to get a mobile data plan for 3 weeks. How much GB would I need for my smartphone if I use Signal daily to write messages and use a map software (download the maps prior to departure)? Also I would do 1-3 Signal calls of 10 minutes duration and check emails twice a day. Would 4GB for 3 weeks be enough?21:51:44
@bkil:matrix.orgbkilYou can save data by downloading an app loaded with free OpenStreetMap.org data!21:54:28
@bkil:matrix.orgbkilIf you can resist the temptation to open any site at all that is streaming video or music or is heavy on big images, you should be fine.21:55:27

someone else will know the answer but may I suggest doing a quick calculation? call someone for 1 minute, say, and see how much data is spent.

@bkil:matrix.orgbkilAnd also consider that wifi might be available in your hotel, and you could also try to enjoy the trip instead of playing with your phone all the time.21:56:43

Yes, I would not do any type of streaming. Only the mentioned tools.

@mahdi1234:matrix.orgmahdiGet Osmand or Organicmaps or other app with offline maps.21:58:11
@bkil:matrix.orgbkil11 hours of talk time over 3 weeks would consume <0.5GB @ 96kb/s. Assuming nobody will send videos to you and such.21:58:49

Well yes, I usually never play with the phone. I never use my phone for anything than phoning and chatting via Signal. But I will need maps for navigation and do calls with friends that live there to make appointments. But for me it is hard to guess how many MB a Signal call uses.

@anon17:matrix.orgHenry MuskOK, so 4GB should be fine then.22:01:14

@yolakalemowa:matrix.orgylklmwhappy I joined22:01:45
@mahdi1234:matrix.orgmahdiIn general Signal for chat is really low band, I'm likely not typical person, but hardly go over 100MB a month overall (have all images manual on Signal).22:02:29
