    No, it's standard language. It's for people on carriers that don't necessarily require data. If you have a Moto Droid, you're on VZW, and you're also on an unlimited data package. You're ok.

    I use Pandora or Droid Live 5 hours a day while at work....I'm at just over 3.5gb of data and I have til the 11th.....not that there is any worry about going over a cap since there isn't one.

    And I like when they argue back at you like you don't know what you're talking about even though you work for VZW. Sometimes I miss my old job.....

    TLDR:

    As it is now, everyone has an unlimited data plan with VZW, and workaround approaches to tethering that isn't officially implemented. Sometime early this year, VZW is gonna implement official tether functionality for users who want to take advantage of that route. And with official tethering comes an additional tethering plan at a 5GB cap.

    The end.

    Actually people, although there is no data usage cap from VZW, there WAS talk of Pandora charging for heavy usage. I don't remember the details, but it was something like $1 per month for over 40 hours. It wasn't a lot.

    Don't quote me on that, I haven't hit that limit or know anyone who has.

    Actually for me using Pandora @ an average of 2 hours a day last month my recent bill showed no extra added charges for data, so I guess it is unlimited usage!

    The do only offer 40 hours of free streaming, as you get close to that they send you and email. You can buy a year for whatever their fee is or pay for the rest of the month for $1. I got it the message last month.
