    I'm curious as to how many people (if any besides me) are not on an unlimited plan with their Bionic. Unfortunately, I am on the 2GB plan. I've used close to 200MB since the 8th. I know there wouldn't be any way I could survive on only 2GB IF i didn't have wifi at the two locations where I spend a lot of time (school/home). It still sucks to have to monitor data, but there's nothing I can do :(.

    Yeah I wouldn't survive.. I've already used about 1.3 GB since the 9th on my Bionic ... but I'm unlimited!

    I wouldn't survive without unlimited data either. I've used 2.5GB since the Bionic launch day last week.

    Yeah I wouldn't survive... my girlfriend and I moved to our own plan before with switch to tiered... i used about 8gb in our first half month =/.. The 4g is so much faster than my home network.. so I used it to download all the root files and whatnot for the thunderbolt.

    Didn't have much of a choice :( Didn't want to buy some piece of crap phone just because I didn't have unlimited data. Oh well.

    I'm on the 2GB plan. Hoping it'll be enough. I've only used 150mb since the 8th, but also connect to wifi whenever I can. I had a feature phone w/ unlimited data & texting in my old plan but unfortunately the unlimited data didn't carry over since it wasn't the smartphone unlimited plan.

    you should have went to sprint and got a sgs 2 only reason why im with verizon is because of the unlimited 30 bucks for limited data is just obscene!:angry:
    verizon should have at least 5gb.Im at 3gb now and counting had it day one.

    Dear people who have tiered data, you can still get unlimited. I started off with tiered data but got it changed by verizon on Monday.

    How did you go about doing that? When I upgraded to the bionic smartphone, I was told a tiered data plan was the only option.

    It is the only option...on paper. We called up verizon and got them to change it to unlimited.

    Call them and tell them you were on unlimited with a feature phone and try to see if they will change it. I was in the same boat as you.

    Heck ya!!! Thanks for the heads up! Just got off the phone with verizon, and I now have the $29.99 unlimited data plan! They said that since I've been a customer for awhile and did have unlimited data w/ my previous plan (even though it was a basic phone) that I could be grandfathered in.

    Woohoo! No more worrying about wifi and data conservation. dancedroid:icon_ banana:

    Congrats. See Verizon isn't all bad....well at least their customer service isn't. That's four people on the forums alone that I've seen get their data changed from tiered to unlimited!

    Unlimited! And when I upgrade in the future if I am forced to switch to a tiered plan I will have to say farewell to Verizon!
