    Anyone know if using Pandora radio has a major effect on the 2 gig data plan useage? I heard that anything streaming will eat up the data very fast. Any insight on this?

    128kbps is about 46mb per hour of streaming.at normal quality streaming, should be 35mb per hour. Last night I fell asleep with pandora streaming over 3g and when I woke up, it used up 170mb of data.

    It depends, anything streaming is going to be a heavy data usage. If you can use it while on a Wifi hotspot instead of over 3G it is free.
