    You do realize that ATT does the same thing? And does not offer unlimited data? Switching to ATT really isn't an answer to unlimited data, the last bastion of truly unlimited data is T-Mobile who has been bought by ATT but for now still has truly unlimited data. Or you can do as I did and keep your unlimited data and still get "upgrade" prices. Like I said there is always a way.

    Am I in the minority by being one who is not really impacted by the loss of 'unlimited' data?

    We upgraded our VZW devices 2 weeks ago. Lost unlimited and went with the 4GB plan (2 devices). Our family/share plan bill is within $1.00 of the previous contract.

    I'd be interested to see the numbers of VZW smart phone users that really use > 10GB/month. Just curious

    I use about 50gigs/cycle. Streaming media, games, and using the internet in my home and at my library in my line of work. So I need my unlimited data. =D

    AT&T not only don't have unlimited anymore, those grandfathered are being throttled to the point that gps won't work. And pages won't load the second they hit 3gb in there cycle. Note to mention that there service is no comparison to Verizons both in voice and 4G coverage and speeds...

    I'm referring to true mobile device usage, not those powering the neighborhood

    That is true mobile device usage though. =p I am using my 4g internet on my mobile device. I can get to 30gigs/cycle just by streaming video over my device. It actually sucks up a lot of data, now add to that downloading music, uploading photos, texting sending audio files and photos using pretty much everything a device has to offer it is not hard to hit 30gigs. People monitor their data because they don't want to pay more for overage. So that old argument from carriers that most people just "don't use it" is because people are cautious to pay them more money than they have to.
