Radio app on iPhone using up data plan?

I have gone over my data plan allotment for the first time ever since I got this iPhone.

I have been listening to FM radio through an app.

Does this use up my data plan?

The only other thing it could be is my kids playing Cut the Rope, maybe.

What uses up the data plan?

Hello Lola1966,

You are correct that when you listen to the FM Radio app on your cell phone it is using your data plan. The reason for that is it has to connect to the internet to be able to play your radio. Most everything on the Iphone uses data. Most if not all apps do. Something that do not use data are the notepad, calculator, taking a picture. Hope that clears it up for you.
