1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I've got unlimited so I'm not too concerned about the actual amount of data I use but I am concerned that it's affecting my battery life. (and I am a bit surprised by how much I've used.) I used to hover about ~2GB/month on my OG Droid, I stream Google Music and Pandora, some Netflix, check FB occasionally, very little web use (Use my Xoom for that), never tether. I've only had my phone 5 days and I've used nearly 3GB already! (4.6 total for this month) I turned down/off some of the data sync but it seems like there must still be a lot of background syncing going on that I can't control. Granted I have been streaming Netflix a bit more than usual but I don't think that can account for it all. There was probably a lot of data used on day 1 when first activating, syncing everything, and downloading apps. I guess I'll let it settle and see how things go from here.

    Anyone else experience this? Anyone have any non-obvious places to check for data-sync options? (I know the one under settings)

    first month of data on a new device is never a good indicator of actual long term usage. I remember both my OG Droid and my X the first months usage was like 6GB for each. it's normal to play more than usual with a new toy.. check after your 2nd billing cycle.
