    Streaming Music with new Verizon Data Plans

    Is there a way to estimate the amount of data used when streaming music?

    I plan to move to the Droid 3 and Verizon from ATT and iPhone 3GS. The physical keyboard is my top reason, among several others. I will lose my unlimited ATT plan and be forced into a tiered Verizon plan. I am well under 2gb of usage now but plan to use the Google Music cloud service on my new Droid 3 to play music from the cloud and would like to estimate how that will increase my data usage and hence my cost. I would expect to do this a couple (2-3) hours per week. Thanks.

    You can calculate the average size and length of your songs and estimate the usage that way.

    There also is a verizon app that lets you see how much bandwidth you have used so far in the current billing cycle.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I know Digitally Imported Radio has an app that shows your real time usage as its streaming. You could use that as a basis, or test out Verizon's usage clicker by marking your data use prior to streaming, then stream 3 hours, then check the usage on VZW afterwards.

    Not sure if there is a lag time on VZ's My Verizon app though.
