Default How Much is 2GB?

Since mobile hotspot only allows 2GBs per month of data... how much is that exactly? Obviously, I wouldn't be watching Youtube, Netflix, and other data intensive sites... just basic internet surfing.

1,024MB in 1GB and most pages even heavy ones (with lots of pics, videos) don't go over 3-6MB at the most. That's just a rough estimate but you should be fine browsing all month.

with basic surfing you will be fine. but yah streaming any kind of movie or making large downloads all the time will kill that 2gigs pretty quick. I just have a regular data plan on my droid and I go over 4gigs easy(weird cuz i use wifi mostly).

4 gigs? Goodnight what are you doing with the Droid? I normally go over 1 gig every month and the most i've done is 3.5 gigs. But that was with tons of NFL network watching, pandora, and other apps.

i honestly have no idea. i guess it just adds up. i would guess the constant downloading of roms that are usually 80mbs or more plus kernels...and themes...

Ok, the way I understood it was we would get an extra 2 gigs of data. That to me sounds like it will probably be an extra 2 gigs on top of their normal tethering package which is 5 gigs. I don't know if I'm right, but I hope so!

My thought was that over the Droid X and through regular tethering, the phones 'limit' is 5gb
If you active the hotspot feature, while you're using that is when you start eating into the 2gb.
That's my thought and what I picked from the way it was worded.
