    Cool Data Usage Contest!

    Since we have unlimited data, why not see how far one can push it?

    Download NetCounter, a great app for keeping track of data, and report back here with your totals. It doesn't start counting until you have the app, so get on it!

    Hey,

    the idea is nice, BUT on most carriers ive seen so far
    there is unlimited dataplan, BUT you will be reduced in speed on
    1/2/5GB usage.

    Speaking of my plan, if you used up 2GB you will be reduced back
    to 2G speed for the rest of the month. So that would be a killer on your idea ^^

    We could also test for this by doing this. Speed tests at different usage levels, 1/2/5GB.

    Does the app use a lot of battery?

    You mean it's in the German contract? I haven't read the TOS word for word but I have never seen anything in any of my agreements that says that VZW will throttle my speed at 1, 2 and 5GB.

    I have gone over 2GB and never had any slow down at all.

    Same here with VZW....they won't throttle you but hit 5gb range a few times and I'll bet your pop up on their Radar....
