    I never understood how people are getting 10-20 GB of use on their phone until today. Last night I set up my Nexus and in the process I used a smooth 500Mb in half a battery cycle. Mostly downloading from android market....absolutely no music or videos.

    If you used netflix, pandora, google music, youtube a lot you're going to easily blow 10Gb in a month.

    *shrug - I was grand fathered in for unlimited data. Doesn't effect me any. but ya there are options to make sure you download over wifi only as well as setting data caps on the phone so you don't exceed your lame 2GB limit.

    I would have switched to sprint if I wasn't grand fathered in heh.

    I am at 10 GB already and that is using my phone like I normally do. I love 4g and I'm grandfathered in. Therefore, I will see if I can hit 50 GB in a month. Might as well abuse it until they take it away.

    I've streamed netflix for about 2 hours in my current billing cycle (I'm watching Lost for the first time ever while I ride the bus to work....up to episode 5 and I'm loving it thus far). Anyway back on topic, I'm 1 week into my billing cycle and I've used 1.2 GB and that is with the 2 hours of streaming on Netflix so not too bad at all. I've also streamed about 2 hours of videos from various sites (youtube et al). Extrapolate that out over a total of 4 weeks and that will be about 20 hours of streaming HD content and I might hit 5GB

    No idea how some people hit 50 GB mark

    I thought 4GB would be plenty for me and I would never use that much. I've been trying to use wifi as much as possibly and it's about 6 days into my billing cycle and I've used 1.6GB over wifi, 109MB over mobile data. I wish I had switched before Verizon got rid of unlimited data so I could actually use 4G without fear of hitting my limit.

    I'm about 21 days into my billing cycle and already hit 17GB. NEVER used to use more than 3GB/mo. Usually under 2GB.

    BUT, that's with streaming music through Google Music everyday, downloading custom ROMs, and using speedtest.net app quite a bit just testing my DL speeds in various places.

    Just FYI, Speedtest.net uses about 22MB per session, which isn't much, but think about it: You use it ten times, just testing different spots, maybe retesting the same spot a couple times to verify either high or low speeds that's 220MB. Do that for a few days, and you'll hit 1GB before you know it.

    Luckily, I'm grandfathered into unlimited as well. They take that away, and I don't know what I'll do. Guess its back to music onboard only and downloading via PC and transferring via USB, and using wifi as much as possible. *shudders at the thought*
