    If you have unlimited data, you won't be charged either way.

    It's not IF.... Anyone with a Droid has Unlimited data. NO Cap!
    I stream Pandora close to 40 hours a week....

    Exactly. You're fine to stream however you want without worrying about data usage issues.

    Yes, if you switch to wifi, it'll turn off 3g and stream over wifi instead. As mentioned, you shouldn't have to worry about data usage either way and streaming radio doesn't burn as much bandwidth as you might think. I use wifi at home and work where I have fast connections and 3G everywhere else.

    You can get throttled back if you go over 5gb though.

    I'm curious, how many hours of streaming audio can you get on one charge? My phone pretty much died from full after 4 hours of pandora.

    You should check out this thread regarding the data plan:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ited-data.html

    Basically, the 5gb "soft cap" seems to be a common misperception (so long as you aren't tethering) arising from the small print regarding other data-enabled devices.

    You know not what you're talking about. No 5 GB limit, no throttling back if you're only using data from your phone. There's a great thread about the misconceptions about data. I think you need to read up on it my friend before posting this as fact, because it's not true.
