    How many GB do you use per month? Especially if using wireless tether. Right now I am at about 20 GB and I was just curious if this is alot compared to other people. Im sure there's already a thread about this somewhere but I searched and could not find one. I use wireless tether constantly for my laptop...

    I'm using my phone as my primary internet while squatting on an air-mattress in a house that won't sell (long story), and I consumed 10gb last month.

    Im also using it as my primary internet when im home. I just hope Verizon never penalizes anyone for doing this for free. Obv I am grandfathered into true unlimited data

    70GB last month, 4G and Netflix HD rocks! I do not know how anyone could use a smartphone without unlimited data.

    Save the streaming for wifi. 2 lines on my account COMBINE for less than 20 MB (yes MB) mobile data every month. I stream music daily on 3G and I have yet to touch 2 GB in a month. I do all the heavy stuff on wifi. I'm grandfathered and not in a 4G area. Maybe if I were in a 4G area, I'd turn that wifi off and experience some speed. :icon_ devil:

    I ate up 18Gb last month without really trying. I think the most I've ever used was around 40-50 during football season, having the Red Zone and NFL Network right there was awesome and the picture is probably better than my SD TV at home. I use tethering every once in a while, even then it is tethering my kindle fire and not a computer, 4G speed is unreal...when it works.

    I completely agree that I couldn't own a smartphone without having unlimited data.

    I use about the 10 to 30 GB a month. Just depends I guess. 4g is my only Internet access at home. I do most of my heavy downloading on my slower 6 mbit connection at my office, which I have downloaded about 150GB this past week.

    Its a lot compared to some people and it's nothing compared to other people. Some use 200mb, other use 600gb. I wouldn't worry about it till you break a terabyte mark.

    Soon as I have GOOD 4g at home, I am going to give my cable internet the BOOT ( or atleast have it turned WAY down so I can still play FPS online with decent ping times ). I currently have 30mb service at home, but 4g with a good "not wanna be 2g/3g combo radio", is damn fast. ( my dad engineers a lot of cell sites for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon... So I know their dirty little tricks )

    I tried really hard last month and used 3 gigs. With solid 4g in my area I never use my wi-fi anymore.

    I have a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of watching 10+ gigs of Netflix on a 4 in. screen.

    I use mine as my primary net source for Xbox live and netflix streaming, along with heavy downloading With unlimited 4g I get 60-80ms ping for Xbox live and use anywhere from 50-200gb/month.

    I'm using about 600 gigs a month on average. I think I could hit one terabyte in a month if I really tried. I pay the extra 30 dollars monthly to use the hotspot feature legitimately and make the most of my unlimited. I'm away from home 5 nights a week so I dropped my home DSL in favor of the 4G and actually, I'm mostly using a wireless high speed cable connection on those 5 nights. Thanks to T.D., an awesome, now private website, I never rent movies, (but I watch all the popular new ones in HD w/DTS on an Argosy connected to a big screen TV, about 2 weeks before the Blu Rays go on sale) nor do I subscribe to HBO, Showtime etc. even though I watch plenty of their series also. I also upload more than I download. Thankfully, the tower near my home does not seem to be congested. None of this may last forever, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

    Does Verizon still bump you from 2gb to 4gb when you upgrade to a 4G phone? or is that promotion over?
