I am in need of help , I just cannot pick which phone I want , I did want the droid razrr maxx but the problem I face is most companies with the shared planes , I don't know with 1gb shared means and I don't want to go over and pay more money , straight talk and boost have unlimited and I have been looking at the evo v on boost.. All I want is a good overall android with great battery and the droid razrr maxx is my dream phone but paying 100 or more a month is a pain especially if I can't get an unlimited everything plan.
Everyone has their personal preference and to be honest going over the 1GB is hard, unless you are streaming videos, or browsing the internet frequently.
This month i had Google Voice for texting over Wifi and mobile internet, with doing about 4k texts, probably 500 or so on Mobile internet i still only peaked at 300MB, so i say you should go for your dream phone!
Honestly if you browse a lot the battery life won't be as good as you want it though, so be warned
Hopefully this helps

u should actually point out how much u wanna spend on your phone.
Thanks for the replies , 200 to 300 , I don't mind going for a 2 year plan , I want a good battery life , Internet wise I must admit I do browse the web a lot. Out of boredness at lunch at work, I don't really stream videos until I'm hone and I use wifi unless its youtube ,I like downloading music , I was confused about the shared data plan and was worried because I do look up a lot of things on the Internet.
What do you normally use your phone for? This month is abnormal for me. I usually use less than 2 gbs but I just moved and don't have my Internet yet so I've been using my phone for streaming more than I normally would. I still use wifi at work though

The most I've ever used is 2gb's and that's with watching a lot of YouTube video and Netflix streaming.
I normally averaged out at 800mb before I got my HTC One X.
Also, you can install an app/widget like Onavo that will tell you exactly how much data you are using, since ICS you can set a limit on your phone too which I think can stop you going over your allowance or at least give you a warning when you're getting close to it.
