If you use your smartphone "honestly", you can use 2GB really quick. I like to stream internet radio audio in my vehicle and at home a fair amount. Even using it back and forth to work for 10 minutes a time or a handful of times for 15-30 mins a time gets me to 4-5GB real quick. Keep in mind that's not streaming it for several hours a time. One month I used 10-11GB "honestly" (w/ no tethering) when I was recording music w/ the Radio Rip app. Right now I'm at 3.16GB w/ a week left in my billing cycle and I don't think I've streamed a whole lot.
Anymore confirmations from Verizon that they can't yank you out of your current unlimited data plan if you upgrade your phone POST 7/7?
This is not saying that people who burn more than 5 gigs don't do it honest. I can see during a vacation or a busy month going over 5 gigs on the phone alone. But tier is here and it would not be a bad idea to get a DSL ....ogle cable modem. But with that said I pay 60 for high speed through my cable company and 30 for data on Vzw. If I was to get the 80 gig plan through Vzw it would be cheaper then what I am paying now combining high speed data both Vzw.

the problem is Verizon has the best phone coverage. people who travel. alot really have anywhere to go but Verizon. for those who say they wollgo to sprint with the other big 2 doing this how long do you think it will take sprint.my guess(which means nothing) would be within the year
I like to use my GPS on my Droid X/X2 when traveling. Arial view is a must, and im sure downloading those images burns a fair amount of data on a longer trip. I can see how these new plans could get expensive real quick. I wonder if they will start sending you an alert via text when you get within 50mb?
Maybe next billing cycle I'll leave wifi off the entire month and see what the data usage looks like. My billing cycle starts in like 3 days.
The only way I would use more data is because when I watch youtube clips of Starcraft 2 broadcasts, I would be able to watch them in "HQ" instead of "SQ." That = more data. I often do this on wifi anyway, so it may not matter. But streaming high quality video is the real data hog when done over 4g.
