Hello, i have an iphone running ios8 and i've set up a VPN to my home router running DD-WRT. Is it possible to capture data from my phone if i'm connected to VPN via 3g from a remote place [not my home connection]?

It would be possible to capture traffic of your iPhone within the mobile operator network and in front of your router (and within the network of ISPs how route your frames).

However, if the VPN works properly, nobody will be able to see what you are transfering, as that's the main idea of having a VPN.
