    It doesn't slow the phone down, it slows down the Internet speeds. And the limit is 5GB. I always go over 1 GB and nothing is slowed down, but once, I went over 5GB and they did slow it down dramatically.

    That depends on what's on each site. Unless you're streaming audio or video, or downloading apps from the market constantly, I can't imagine you'd hit that limit unless you were browsing 24/7.

    Not to sound clichéd,but,there's an app for that,(or 2,etc..)in the market.I would suggest d/l & using for just a few days & then 'freeze' it,or un-install, & get an idea of how much you use.The one I used kept a count, but,it seemed to bog the system down & use up precious battery resources.

    According to crickets web site, the limit for android is 1gb, the 5gb is for their wireless broadband. I also went over one time, and youtube and pandora were unusable.

    So you probably come down to a MetroPCS level of browsing then, LOL.

    Tethering means you use your phone as a modem for your computer. You can use your phone's 3G to connect your computer to the internet.

    That is so sad why lie to us and make us think its unlimited so what are we really paying for?

    They can say it's unlimited because they don't cut you off, they just slow you down. You can still go to any site, it's just slower. But yeah, it sucks to have to even think about how much data you are using when you just want to listen to pandora or watch youtube.

    I pay 10 dollars extra, not including warranty or the charge to pay the bill in a brick and mortar store. maybe that has something to do with that.

    Anyone know how to check how much data you've yoused so far? I was unaware if this and i went wayyyy past 1gb (i subscribed to a Netflix sorta thing with unlimited videos on my phone) so it be nice to check how much I've used during the month. I have the huawei ascend by the way...

    You can view your CRICKET account profile online for prior months data usage. For current up-to-date data use,there are various apps in the market that will accomplish this.
