    Unlimited data dead on VZW . How much data do you use a month?

    With no tethering I used 14 gb last billing cycle. Just using streaming music and video a few hours a week puts me well over the rumored 2 gb 30 dollar plan. Will u renew your VZW contract regardless of this announcement? I wont.

    I will definitely not renew if they don't grandfather current customers into unlimited data for $30.

    I'm don't think they will put the cap on existing unlimited data customers maybe on new contracts

    So this hits VZW too?

    Also, my 2 cents: my data usage is 4 to 15 MB/day, according to 3G Watchdog. I'm on a $8/mo data plan that allows me to use 15MB/hour (with speed dropping to 64kbps after that) and 100MB/day (with 16kbps speed limit once I hit that until 03:00 next night).

    However, I don't stream music or videos, mostly because I find it plain weird to put such load on the network when I can just copy from my desktop.

    yeah, i am definitely not renewing my contract, i use a good 7-10gb per month without tethering, at least sprint is still keeping its unlimited plan, at least for now.

    I usually use about 1.5gb/month. Theoretically I should be okay with the 2gb plan but I'm too close for comfort. I'm waiting to hear weather I'm grandfathered in to unlimited but if not I'll at least explore my options.

    They can't put caps on people with contracts...we have contacts already. If they try to be smart they'll lose a lot of business cause a lot of people will leave.

    "They can't put caps on people with contracts"

    If that's really the case then how do i raise a dispute to Verizon properly?

    I do use wireless tether a lot. I am a fanatic about getting to work early in the morning so i bring my laptop and browse using wireless tether for an hour or so monday through friday. Lately the tethering starts off working fine but about 2 minutes in, my androidtether network goes from internet to local only with no internet. I can only assume that this is happening because my account is being capped.

    So again, if my current contract says unlimited data and now all of the sudden im being capped, how do i go about escalating my concerns to Verizon without getting in trouble for using wireless tether?

    Thanks,
    David

    I average @ 1.5-2 GB per month with no tethering. I rarely exceed 2 GB.

    This is for new contracts. We'll be ok so relax. So much hype on these forums. My phone is the only Internet connection that I have. I am not rich enough to own a pc or wifi so everything is done on my d2. That being said, with netflix, about 15-17gb a month.

    im sure most people understand that, the reason its a big deal is because its going to affect a lot of our upgrade options, because if you want to stay with verizon, you need to either give up unlimited data or you have to buy a phone at full price.
