    I usually only use 4 or 5 gigs, but this was a heavy use month. I just got my GNex.

    Do you guys who are using 10+ GB on your phones also have separate internet access that you pay for at home or do you only use your phone and/or tether for your laptops/desktops? I love my GN, but I much prefer watching stuff on my TV/ 24inch PC monitor.

    I'm always on WiFi at home, so I don't use much data, and I have a remote controlled HTPC hooked up to my plasma TV, so I do all my streaming via that.

    Y'all are nuts. I used normally 150MB but I have gone up to 650MB. My wife uses just under 1GB and I thought that was a lot.

    I have cable internet at home (Phoenix area) and use that to stream throughout the house (have no idea how much data I use there, but I bet it's a LOT more than my 60ish gb per month I use on my phone). My "issue" is that I during the week I work in Tucson. I used to pay for a separate WiFi, but it sucked and seemed like a waste at $30 per month. So when I went to smart phones 2 years ago, I use it to tether and watch Netflix every night. And I have my computer connected to my 42" LCD so it's a beautiful thing.

    We could have the "tether" discussion, but in my opinion I could watch it on my phone, or better yet I could directly connect my phone to my TV, and I'd use the exact same amount of data, so there's no difference. I just find it more convenient to tether.

    Wow, that's like driving your ferrari to the corner supermarket once a month. 150MB?? Do you even keep your phone turned on??

    And your name is "tekjunkie"??? :blink:

    If he/she is anything like me, he is probably around wifi quite often. Most of my phone's usage is done at work, where I have wifi access. At home, I use wifi most of the time. When I am out, I don't do a lot of usage. Check e-mails, do some basic web browsing, perhaps play a game..... None of that requires a lot of bandwidth. The only bandwidth intensive thing I do from time to time is stream music while in my car.

    I tend to hover in the 2GB range. I have used a lot more than that, and a lot less. But I would guess in the 2GB ballpark would be my average.

    This is my concern for this month. I'll just have to wait and see.

    I think you're safe. And no, I've never heard anything from big red. And I've been 20-60 gb per month for two years now and not one peep. I have access to Wifi (mainly at home on the weekends), but see no reason to even connect since my 4g speeds are faster anyway. And since their "throttling" policy only applies to 3g, I'm not sure what they could do anyway. Since I haven't heard anything in two years I'd say you're safe. Gotta love unlimited data!! :biggrin:
