Default Average Data Usage?

How much data on average does Google Navigation use? Slacker Radio? Pandora?

i usually use about 1.5-2GB every month. Most I've ever had was 3.5GB but I had to try to get that. I don't tether because there is WiFi everywhere I go. So far this month I'm at ~1.4MB that's with an hr of last.fm streaming, occasional YouTube vids, FB browsing, Phandroid app, Twitter, web browsing, etc. Oh and email and such

Guess I'll be caching my streaming music stuff on my phone in the Slacker Radio app. I'll be damned if I go over that 2 GB limit.

I'm 1/3 through my billing month and sitting at a svelte .104 gig. I usually average betwen 1/2 and 3/4 gig. My wife will average around 1.5 on her iPhone from watching netflix from time to time. I've only gone over a gig once, the first month I had the phone. I've used wireless tether until the gingerbread update, but only occasionally and for short durations.

Default 2 gigs is not a whole lot, especially on 4G

I'm a heavy data user and I used about 6 gigs on 4G my first month on my Droid Charge. Didn't really tether except for the two nights that storms knocked out my UVerse for a bit. I usually used 2-4 gigs on my Sprint Pre.

I got locked in on the Unlimited Data Plan yesterday. So now I don't have to worry about going over some arbitrary number.

I consider myself an average, medium user. I use Slacker a few hours a week, browse internet, use apps and Google Navigation moderately. I don't download movies or video chat as I'm stock. Never use wifi. I use 6GBs a month.

Used about 200Mb on Verizon's network this month. Add another 5-8GB from WiFi use.

Somewhere between 1 and 8+ gigs a month. It really depends on the amount of WiFi I use. Even though I have the unlimited plan I am pretty religious about using WiFi unless I am on 4G then it's almost always faster.

My mom was in the Hospital for almost a week and I spent a lot of time there and I used nearly 4 gigs in a few days. They have the crappiest WiFi ever, and least there was a good 3G connection.

If/when Netflix ever happens it will go up a whole lot.

I use at least 30gb. Where I live, there is no high speed internet. I tether and play with alot of different roms (I'm rooted). Hopefully the rumors of being grandfathered in are true. I would literally have to change my life to accommodate a limit on my data usage. Lol, sounds exaggerated, but unfortunately all too true.

I don't stream or tether and I'm on wifi at home at night. During my 8 hours of work during weekdays the only thing that uses much data is doggcatcher occasionally downloading a new audio Podcast episode. I've never used less than 5 gigs a month in the year i've had my DX. Never more than 7 though. Seems like people that use their phones at all are going to be screwed by these new plans. might be fine if you're on wifi all day everyday.

Yeah, it seems that way. I'm glad that I locked myself into the Unlimited plan went I did.

I'm usually just under 1gb, sometimes a little over.
