    Hi everybody, I'm new to the forums and so far am loving the vast amount of stuff I'm learning from this site and what this phone can really do!

    I just received my bill from Verizon for May and compared it to my April bill. I went from using 52MB of data on my Omnia to 545MB of data on my Incredible! I'm so thankful for the unlimited data :)

    What was your data usage before and after you got your Incredible?

    545MB is nothing. i have used 1,821 MB on 3G from 4/20 to 5/17, and only god knows how much on my Wifi. i have had days where i have streamed a gig of music alone over wifi. i am getting my money's worth! :)

    I was under 350MB per month on my BB's, but with the Eris and Inc I pull about 1GB per month.

    Isn't there really a limit of 5gig? Maybe I'm just imagining, but I thought that was the case for some reason.

    There have been rumors floating around of a cap, but it's just that: a rumor. However, if you tether your phone with PDANet or something and suddenly your data use spikes to 7gb a month after never going above 700mb then VZW is probably going to notice.

    Seriously... if you're only gonna do that much in 2 weeks, go get a jitterbug or something. :p

    I have 743.6MB for the last billing period, but that includes usage from my new DInc and from my old Omnia as well, which wasn't used as heavily.
