    If you stream video 5 GB is not that hard to reach.

    I was at 6 GB last month, playing with Netflix way too much.

    My normal usage is 2.5 GB.

    Haha! While back I had "unlimited" texting and turns out they meant 2000 a month. One month they charged me for abusing it cause I sent 5000 texts and when I called they were trying to act smart with me.

    anyway they got rid of all charges and I got family unlimited...which is real unlimited.

    I have a question...I tethered yesterday and I literally downloaded about 200 megabytes in just a few minutes. (the tethering app said it, keeps track). It was a website with about 30 videos on one page.

    If I visited this same exact site from my phone, would my phone download the same amount of data or does it download more tethering?

    That does bring up a serious question. What good is 2gb of data (at $30.00) when you have Netflix or Hulu? 2gb is nothing!

    I regularly use over 5GB if I find a good series to watch on Netflix, also I've never heard a single complaint from Verizon about my data usage...so unlimited was/is unlimited...they probably said otherwise in store to "help save the network" so not everyone will go crazy with data usage

    They advertise that we can netflix and share hotspots.... They don't tell us itll cost an extra arm and a leg to do it. 2gig is one and a half movies a month.
