    Thanks for all the replies everybody. I downloaded 3G Watchdog so hopefully that helps. I just checked my usage again and it's still charging me minor charges in the random hours of the night. I tap my battery widget and it says wifi is on, and I don't think sync is on because on my power control nothing is green.

    That sucks. I feel its really invaluable now a days to have unlimited data and SMS.

    Angry Same problem

    Hey Morse, I have the same deal. However, my usage after TWO days is 35 MB. Of this 27mb was the second night I had it while I was a sleep and not using. I am on the 150MB plan as well. If I was to go over by that amount that would be $270.

    Keep watching the usage and re-post if you find anything out. I will do same.

    Yeah it's so much better to just have unlimited. Droids are going to use data regardless because they use data to check for app upgrades and other stuff.

    I'm doing just fine with what I have with my Droid now. I needed a phone for calls and texts, as well as advanced scheduling and task management because I'm a business major. I didn't really get the Droid for the internet and to check my FaceBook every 5 minutes, I have my laptop glued to my side anyways.

    I decided to just turn off the Mobile Network, and my data stopped being used all-together. Everything still works such as the phone, texts, etc. and when I need the internet I simply either turn on WiFi (because I'm usually at home or on campus where wireless is available) or I turn Mobile Network back on if there's no WiFi available. Works perfect for me.

    I highly recommend the Incredible, I've had it for about two months and I love it!

    In regards to your question, I can't really give the answer you're probably looking for because I don't use Google Calendar myself, but I'm pretty sure that if you update you calendar while connected (through Wi-Fi or mobile network) the update will stay while you are offline as well for you to view, but I'm not sure if you'd be able to edit it without being connected.

    your phone is using data even in sleep mode
    sending and receiving information from the tower's,
    smart phone's use data as bad as they use the battery,
    i have had the dinc for 3 1/2 weeks, when i check this
    a.m. it showed over 760 mgs used and it was three days
    behind on reporting.i agree with the above poster, if you have
    a smart phone,you need a smart plan......unlimited,it will pay
    for it's self and you don't have to worry about everything you
    do and don't do on the phone,then you can enjoy your new phone.
