    Does FTP file transfer process consume my Bandwith?


    Hello there! Noob here, I have an iPhone which has at least 10 Gigs of data that I want to transfer to my PC

    Been a little bit hesitant on using FTP clients like Filezilla but I really dont know if the copying process adds up to my alloted Bandwith usage,? If it doesn't affect my Bandwith then I'm fine with it Coz I'm only allowed to use 1 Gigabyte/day...Thanks a lot

    Uploading from your phone or downloading to your phone consumes
    bandwidth.

    My question though, is why not directly connect to the PC to transfer files?

    From phone to PC, as back-up purposes, with the usb cable connected
    There is no other way to acces iPhone files, it's not like an ipod when you can just connect and act like an external Hardrive, it has to be thru SSH and FTP..

    The Iphone can connect via wifi to your network though. In addition to this, there are software apps that will help you in transferring data back and forth. Do a search in Google for these. Some free, some not...

    Here's one example: linky

    I've exhausted all my efforts on all these types of things, I just want to know if the whole copying process adds up to my bandwidth allowance , that's all
