    It really depends on what you're doing. If you're just browsing the web, checking e-mails, etc you're unlikely to get to that cap unless that's all you do. Streaming is where you can eat into that cap quickly. IIRC correctly, streaming music uses about 1MB per minute. Video uses about 350-400 MB per hour. So if you devoted your data to exclusively streaming music, you could listen to about 42 hours of music. If you devoted it exclusively to streaming video, you could stream about 6 hours of music. I'm under estimating to be safe.

    Hi and welcome to Android Forums, I'm rabidhunter. That's a good question, and the answer to your question is what do you do on the web? Are you interested in just emails and the occasional web browsing session? Are you into streaming music and video? Do you spend most of your time on Facebook and Twitter? Or any combination of them? Each of them require a different amount of data. I'm not sure of your carrier; however, this is a good place to start. How Much is 5GB (Or 2GB, or 3GB & 10GB)

    You will find at the bottom data calculators from Verizon, ATT, Sprint, and T-Mobile.

    I hope you find that helpful.

    I don't understand. Why is there a slot if there's no way to use it?

    Welcome to Android Forums.:)Depends on what you use your device for. Browsing internet, installing a few apps, checking status on facebook, ect. you should not have to worry about reaching your limit. If you watch a lot of online videos like with you tube, download alot of music and tether to share your connection with another device and you can blow through it pretty quick. A few songs and e-mail are fine. There are some apps in the play store that can help you keep up with your usage. Hope this helps. Joining the forums so you can keep up with your particular device is a good way to stay on top of things.
