    I have a GS3 and there's a setting in it that I can set to turn off my data so as to not go over a limit. I have unlimited data so thankfully I don't have to use it, however... I got both my parents a ONE X as presents and they do not have unlimited data, I got them set up with a 300mb a month plan. I doubt they will use it up but just in case, is there a similar setting in the ONE X that I can set to disable mobile data if they ever hit that 300mb mark? I'm paying the bill lol

    Thanks!

    I have been on a 200MB plan for 2 years now with a Dell Streak and have never gone over, BUT, you have to be careful. The big issue is automatic updates and apps that continuously stream data.

    I am on a home wifi 99% of the time and I kept my 3G turned off all the time except when I really wanted to use it. I averaged about 100MB a month.

    You might be better off with the new data shared plan that starts at 1G.
