I blew my limit within one minute recently, because I was using my iPhone's Personal Hotspot so that I could get internet on my Macbook while I was away.
My mistake was that I forgot that my Dropbox on the Macbook hadn't sync'd the large number of files that I had just moved into Dropbox on my main computer the day before. So as soon as I connected to the internet using my phone's Personal Hotspot, a huge number of files automatically downloaded! Ow.
(By the way, have you found your Personal Hotspot?! And do you know about Dropbox? iTea&Coffee can help you discover both!)
