    How much data usage have you managed to rack up in a month? I am up to 1.5GB already this billing cycle (5 days in). Verizon advertises the data service as unlimited, but I know they reserve the right to terminate service to whomever they please if they feel that their network is being abused. I also believe that there used to be a 5GB monthly limit on their "unlimited" data plans. Is this still the case? Has anyone used a ton of data in a month and heard anything about it from Verizon?

    I had just under 9 GB this past bill cycle. Nothing to worry about.

    Sign into verizonwireless.com then click on data usage on the left side of summary or you can #3282 (#data) and receive a text message for billing cycle that you are currently in.

    The unlimited plan is unlimited... although, keep in mind, Verizon can void your contract at any time and shut you off if they feel it's excessive.

    If you don't mind me asking, how did you manage to use 1.5 gigabytes of data in 5 days? I don't think I've used that much in a month, let alone in 5 days. That's insane. Are you streaming Pandora One 24/7? Tethering like a madman?

    I am an aerospace engineering undergrad student. I think ~1000MB of that was downloading roms in class to install and play with. Some of it is tethering. My home internet connection is only 1000Mbps/500Mbps (only service available at my rural location). Some nights when traffic is bad I will tether to my phone so that I can stay connected in WOW. Sometimes I will download files on my phone instead of on my PC so as to not take up my limited bandwidth while gaming. That's about it I think.

    There's an app for that [​IMG]

    Go to the market and choose the verizon tab. grab their "my verizon" app. It lets you see minutes used, data used 92.439mb...cycle ends April 2nd.

    92mb?? Guess I'm not on anybody's radar! lol

    Only at 286211 this month so far and had 1.49GB last month. Just discovered DroidLive so I'm sure this moth will show a significant jump in data usage.

    If VZW is monitoring usage, you're a prime candidate to hear from them.

    The rest of us will make sure to thank all of you when Verizon does impose a cap.

    That's IF you tether and pay VZW for it, but since there's no VZW tether app for the Droid yet, it really doesnt make a difference.

    Bottom line is:

    Data on the Droid is unlimited, you can pull down terabytes if you want, as long as it's only for your phone.
    If you dont pay VZW for the service, and they catch you tethering, then they can terminate your service and slam you with fees, per your Terms of Service agreement.
    As long as you're not stupid about it, you can tether occasionally and not have anything to worry about.
