    When you get near the maximum amount of 150MB, will you be notified by Verizon that you are nearing your allowed usage and that if you continue, you will go over the limit of 150MB? Or will we have to monitor the usage ourselves?

    They likely will expect you to monitor your own usage. At least they have an app that will let you do so.

    doubt they would give a warning message. for every mb you go over it's to their profit, so i don't see why they would.

    luckily you can monitor your usage from your account page.

    Exactly - Verizon will probably make more money via people like that going over their mbs than the $15 vs $30/month difference.

    There's also a widget for monitoring data.

    go with the 29.99 unlimited plan if you're afraid of a little overage.

    Here's something I'd like to be sure about. In the "Official Verizon document" it shows the 150 MB plan for $15, with overage of another 150 MB for another $15. Somewhere along the line, it was interpreted to mean an additional ten cents per MB overage. Is it true that one would be charged ten cents per MB of overage, or will VZW sell another 150 MB for another $15, similar to ATT's package (200 MB for $15, but go over 200 by a MB or two and get hit for another $15)? Guess we'll find out on the 28th.
