    I recently got a new 2-years contract and got a blackberry curve. I exchanged the curve for a motorola droid because the droid can run on data faster than a BB.

    I am new to this "unlimited data" plan thing so I don't know what I can and cannot do. I mostly need internet access for email, instant messaging, facebook, and android apps.

    I don't want surprises on my phone bill. So can anybody tell me what is the difference between "unlimited data" and "mobile broadband"? I have a clue that "unlimited data" is for phone usage and "mobile broadband" is for internet usage via a computer device (must use a broadband usb).

    I have apps on my phone so I want to make sure that using these apps are part of the unlimited data and because I am paying $29.99 a month I can use apps on my phone, receive emails, use facebook, and use instant messaging, upload pictures onto an internet photo site online, download pictures from internet site, and use browser to browse the internet on my phone.

    Is that all possible to do with an "unlimited data" plan?:greendroid:

    You purchased an unlimited plan. Don't worry about your usage. The unlimited data plan covers data used by your 3g connection.

    Good questions. With your "unlimited data plan you are afforded ALL YOU CAN USE data on your Droid. That means download apps, surfing the net, IM, everything. You can't go "over" your data on your phone.

    This does not include tethering (although I've yet to see anyone get charged for tethering) to your laptop and using your phone as a modem.

    Mobile broadband data plans are for those little wireless cards you plug into your laptop to take the internet with you. It does not apply to you as you have unlimited data. Apples and oranges.
