    I was using about 2 gigs consistently but since Singplayer came to Android I've been pushing closer to 4. I just rooted last week so I'm sure Flash content will push me closer to 5.

    I do use it quite a bit at work. I try to stay on Wifi at home to offload the data the widgets use but I'm not sure how much of a dent that makes.

    I tether quite a bit, as you see. They are taking forever to lay fiber where I am (just outside of Indy) so for now I tether for net. I know, I know....

    I could see slingplayer (if I ever get one, LOL) and flash spiking my usage, but 90% of the time I'm at home or the office and just don't see watching those types of files over 3g on the Droid instead of PC.

    Now, if I start going to the gym again and listening to Pandora for an hour a day (of course, could always save mbytes listening to just plain old mp3's on my Droid) or watching tv.com on the Droid for 30 minutes, then I imagine I could start hitting 5 gigs.

    And I'm experimenting with the wireless tether as I post this. Not bad for surfing eventhough I'm only getting about 700-800k/sec

    mine fluctuates quite a bit...

    may - 1.6 gig
    june - 6.8 gig
    july - 600 mb (billing cycle ended yesterday)

    i dont tether since i already have a Verizon wireless laptop card paid for by work. This is all email and music..... i do make some wi-fi phone calls from time to time but not that many.

    I voted 4, even though it is a bit over 4.

    Probably 70% of the time, I am around wifi. Internet radio has it's claws in me. If I am going somewhere where I don't know the radio stations, which recently has been rather often. Streaming radio adds up quite a bit, that makes the bulk of my data use monthly. There was a period in time where I was in my car for 8+ hours a day. If I am staying in a hotel, I can't sleep in silence, or hear the outside noises. I could use the TV to mask it, but I have Pandora. So all night long she streams me lullabies. Some, actually most hotels seemed to have wifi, but sometimes I wouldn't use it, no real reasoning why though. I heard Pandora uses roughly 50MB an hour, which is why I have so high of usage. My highest month was 9GB, which was 4 months ago, so out of my average.

    My web browsing is usually extremely basic, checking a few forums and news sites. I e-mail a little bit, but nothing crazy, no huge transfers. I don't really tether, not that I am against it, it is just that I rarely have a need for it. I also have a few widgets that poll for updates from time to time, but nothing major. Basically Pandora = 3+GB a month on my phone.
