    I'm considering buying a slingbox to be able to get direcTV on my HTC incredible.
    I've been a long time VZW customer with "unlimited" data. I'm just wondering if I use slingbox and my incredible say 15 hrs a month would I likely go over the soon to be tiered 2GB of data?

    You still have unlimited data since all of us were grandfathered in. Don't worry about your 2GB cap; you don't have one unless you changed your plan.

    I hope you're right, I've heard of some folks with "unlimited" getting changed for excessive use.

    If I read this right, streaming netflix will use 1 GB/hr and slingbox will use 2GB with 9-18 hrs of use. Don't know why the difference.
