What Is Cellphone Data?

Cellphone data is any type of data transferred over a phone, such as text, video, images or GPS data. Every request sent from and transferred to a phone uses monthly bandwidth and can cause users to go over monthly allowances if they are not careful.

Monthly cellphone data plans provide users with a set amount of data transfer, such as 5 gigabytes worth of normal phone usage. Every time a mobile phone is used to access the Internet, it sends and receives requests to upload and download over the cellphone network, even if the user is just using the phone to access an email.
