    List below how much data you are limited too, please say if it is too much or too little and why.
    Unlimited Users, give an estimate on how much you use.

    -Thanks!

    4 Gigs. I usually use about 3. That is with using lots of twitter, a couple videos a month, lots of Web surfing, and email. I also use constant news and weather widgets. Highest I've ever used was 3.5 gigs

    Back in my 3G days it averaged to around 1GB a month. Since going to 4G LTE it's around 4GB.

    I am at 45gb right now with 5 days left all on 4G. Spotify, Hulu, and Netflix... I don't have cable or any other internet source. Was hitting about 30gb before I got the Lapdock500. No tethering, very little gaming.

    I have a phone dedicated to my family for internet hot spot and that pulls 48-70GB (in summer)...but on the handset I carry I hardly ever hit 8 gigs.

    Used as modem, lots and lots of Netflix, and desktop streamer apps

    Verizon has the best network. It costs but it is clearly the Mercedes of the carriers.

    Although I agree that unlimited should mean unlimited, this kind of usage is why I figure that Verizon will eventually find a way to screw me out of my unlimited plan.

    No offense to you, GHQ5T, but 170+ gbs of data per month is the problem that carriers are trying to fight. It hogs the data lines and reduces overall usability for the rest of their customers. The data pipe is only so large...

    Oh yeah, contrary to some thinking, a cellphone data plan does not actually replace home internet service. If it does then get rid of the smartphone because you can't afford it.

    I just quit Verizon. I kept the service because it works well. They don't need you to defend them. Trust me, unless you live in Gnat's Ass, Wyoming you have nothing to worry about.

    Chill out you don't have Sprint.

    Network and bank roll are well endowed....

    Interesting you know this other guys budget so well.

    Home internet where I live is miles behind VZ in QoS. Why pay for that? I run my house on VZ and my neighbors "cable broadband" is sucking wind.

    If they are going to take it back, they'll do it. They don't need a reason to remove features. But keep in mind as long as you pay your bill on time VZ will never cross you

    I know its alot. But 4g can handle alot more than 3g. Also the area that I'm in doesnt have a high traffic like crowded cities. I hope that none of us get screwed out of unlimited cause that would suck.
    Im pretty sure that my usage alone wouldn't be the cause. If so then I would be famous! But you are right. Unlimited should mean unlimited. I paid for a phone with all these features, why would I not use them? If you say "all you can eat" don't give me one plate and then say the kitchen is closed fatty!

    Man!

    Wow, I was hoping that none of you would beat my 13.7 GB in 2 weeks. I always try to beat who ever is using the most data, but I am not dedicated that much. HOW DO YOU USE 178GB OF DATA IN A SINGLE MONTH?
