    data usage

    I was just trying to figure out if it would be worth it for me to run out and get a phone (thinking of buy an OG off of ebay and getting into the unlimited or just wait and get the $30/month plan. I have access to a computer so I wouldn't be streaming music all day, I think I would just mostly jump online while I am out to look stuff up, use it as a GPS and overall just keep busy while I am at work. What is some of the data that you guys go through and what do you do with your phones? (just kind of looking for an approximate I know I can't do any mathematical calculations)

    Thanks

    Im a very heavy user and I don't go anywhere near the 2g limit mainly because I have my phone on wifi anytime I can. I don't think gps uses data because my wife uses the gps on an old eris that isn't connected.

    I do a lot of stuff. I use the unlimited data plan to the fullest so I can my moneys worth.

    Heres what I do:
    Pandora
    Netflix
    Craigslist
    Ebay
    GTunes
    Youtube
    TubeMate
    Web Browsing
    GPS
    Google Maps
    Games
    GTalk
    Skype
    DroidForums

    Plus more. It all comes down to how much u use it but I would snag it bcuz Verizon is gonna cut that on July 7th anyone who has it now is getting grandfathered in.

    If you don't need Unlimited Data, why get it?... I dunno, if you afford it, why not- never know if /when that WiFi will vanish (moving, can't afford it anymore, etc).

    cool thanks, I have 4G in most of the areas I am in and around, but I also have some pretty good wifi spots that on my laptop right now I am on one and its 54Mpbs so that seems to me thats its faster than 4G correct?

    Verizon has an app so you can track your data usage. That will let you know if you really need that unlimited or not.

    Yeah but that app is only worth it if he/she has a data plan. If its per use then he /she wont really know their real usage.

    Why not get it? The unlimited data plan now is 30 dollars a month....from what I've read the cheapest data plan they'll offer is 2 gigs for 30 dollars....why would it be better to pay the same price for 2 gigs and not just go unlimited?

    Dial #data to get a free text message with your current data usage. Its usually accurate within a day or so.
