    I would have to do what I do with the Dx. Download the movies to the card on my computer then place the card in the phone.

    32 minutes if you Max out your downloading speed .. I would hope no one would be stupid enough to do that on a 5GB cap .. like the article says .. If u want to download a movie do it at home then load it on your phone

    Okay, I saw this article and had a question..

    If you have Unlimited Data now with 3G, there's no 5GB CAP.. I easily download 10GB a month with no extra fees.. Does this new LTE 4G have a 5GB CAP or am I missing something?

    Honestly, I was hoping LTE would be good for usage at my house as no one offers high speed out in the country. Apparently, I was wrong.

    Then again, I'm only going to really be using it for gaming.

    As I understand the current plan is just for the modems. There are no lte phones or plans that I have read about before next year. I could be wrong.

    These data caps really need to go away... They say the new speeds will make it possible to drop your broadband at home... But you'll only be able to use it for 5-7 days per month... Then you'll be out of data!

    gunz.jones, you are correct! The 5Gb/month cap is only for the modems, however once LTE comes out, they MAY have it for that :/
