Nothing, if you're referring to which of the two counts towards any threshold or allowance limit you may have with your data plan. As for the actual difference between the two terms, "sent" data refers to the data that has been transmitted FROM your phone to Verizon's network....for example, if you type an email up and send it via your Iphone, the content of the message as well as any data transmitted to the network to support the sending of the email (recipient address, queries / confirmations to/from the mail server, etc.) all count toward the total amount of "sent" data in that particular data transaction. Even something as simple as inputting a web address to direct your browser to results in sent data.

"Received" data refers to the data sent TO the phone by Verizon's network....received data occurs any time ANY data content is sent to the phone that is not using Verizon's SMS/MMS service or voice calls....this would include purchase applications, viewing web content, reading emails, etc.

Hope this helps!

One is data coming to you, the other is data that you send out. Which is greater depends on how you use your iphone. Do you mostly purchase music and movies, or do you shoot video and share it with your friends?
