    I switch roms daily, I use 26-30gb+ of data a month without tethering, and I love root beer, vodka, and long walks on the beach.

    I'd use WiFi if the Droid 1 could keep connected to the internet via Secured WiFi. But since Verizon decided they didn't want us Droid 1 users using WiFi (note, Sarcasm intended) - I have to use 3g even while next to a WiFi router at home/work. That said, the most I've ever used is 2GB and I average about 400mb. I sure hope that my next Droid later this year will be more WiFi compatible.

    Frankly I'm sick of hearing about congestion from the carriers. If they can't meet demand (which I know they can) they need to stop adding customers they can't support.
    And there you go. You don't hear internet companies crying about how a certain user might go over 5GB of usage in their home per month, yet you hear about it from the cell companies. If they sell unlimited plans then they shouldn't cry about people using what they call is too much data. Do i think people should be using tether to use their ps3, no, but there are alot of people that do use the phone to listen to music and watch alot of youtube videos, and with what we see is an addition of netflix app and hulu for the 4g phones, does anyone really think that the data is going to go down? i mean seriously. If i can stream netflix to my phone, you better believe that your going to see a very high usage on my end, why? because i like watching movies, and if i can watch them when i have downtime i'm going to.

    As i've always stated, I do think there should be an option in between for users who only do use like 1-2 GB a month, and it should be less then unlimited, but you don't sell a product as unlimited and then cry about how people are using too much data. If people are using 30GB of data, the carriers can easily track what type of data they are using. I view this as car insurance, I pay alot for car insurance, and i've never once been pulled over or once gotten into any kind of accident, yet i still end up paying for the mistakes of others.
    Resistance is futile.

    @ New2u - Exactly. I'm so sick of companies offering UNLIMITED but in the fine text they do everything they can to limit the unlimited. Either that or they complain acting like they are the victims when they were the ones flaunting their "unlimited" data plans on TV. Why complain about 3G usage when Verizon releases a phone (Droid 1) that can't keep a WiFi signal?

    Why doesn't Verizon have a 2GB plan? I mean no one with a smartphone is going to do the 150MB plan. I'm sure a lot of us would go to the 2GB plan - hoping that they keep an Unlimited Plan (maybe charge $10/mo more for that?).

    The reason they don't have a 1-2 GB plan is for the reason that if they think that only 5-10% do more then 2GB then they would only have 5-10% of people paying the extra money for that service. Now i'm sure that usage charts will change as soon as people start going to 4G, and from what I understood about 4G is that it's more optimized for higher usage anyways. So only time will tell.
    Resistance is futile.

    When you figure in that NetFlix on Monday talked about going streaming only real soon (Netflix Decision To Switch Off Streaming DVD Queue Turns Off Customers - Techland - TIME.com), and with the addition of NetFlix on all the major smartphone OSes in the very near future (right now only iOS & W7 have it), I see the potential for huge network usage real quick in 2011.

    Really, why would you be watching all that many movies on your smartphone? If I had a physical copy, maybe on an airplane but that's not streaming. Don't get the obsession with streaming, I think a large part of it is people do it just because it's cool that they can.

    Out and about, watch a movie while waiting for the doc, then pick it up when you're home on your PC or TV. Not an ideal situation, but though of us with nooks and kindles and whatnot will read a chapter or two on our phones while waiting in line, or whatever. Same principle.
