I have an android, and I'm on a shared data plan with my brother so we have 4 GB between us. I don't get wifi in my dorm so I really cut back on how much browsing I do. Now I pretty much only use data when I'm lost in the city and need to use the GPS. Even so, when I first got my phone and I didn't know about the wifi thing, I was using it all the time for days before I got a notification. You should definitely contact someone and tell them about the notification.

I never turn Cellular data off, what I do is I use wi-fi whenever is possible, right bow I'm home and I'm using wi-fi, when I'm @ Uni I'm also on wi-fi, when I'm out like at a restaurant or the park I use cellular data. I have Unlimited data which is awesome, BUT even with my Blackberry which I use on 4G all the time, I never use wi-fi on my BB, I don't even reach 1GB a month and I watch youtube videos all the time. I don't have Verizon but I think you should call me or go to the store they will help you

There's a place on Verizon's site to see how much you've used. Keep an eye on it. I have unlimited but my brother who is on my plan doesn't so I check his occasionally.

We would all go over because we do the music sites and I'm online all day!

You miiight have only 250MB of data - I know my plan has 2GB of data but it's a heck of a lot more per month than $30 on AT&T lol. I'd call Verizon and ask.

I'm on the Internet on my phone pretty much all the time, including for Netflix every night, apps with Internet usage are even running when I'm asleep, and in a week, I've only used 340MBish. I'd definitely call and see how much data you have. (I got nosey and looked it up, I have unlimited data). If you're worried about going over, you can go into your settings and set a cap on your data so once you hit that each month, it won't let you use it anymore.

Verizon does not have a $30/mo plan for new Iphones. Are you somehow running it on an old dumb phone plan?

Cheapest you can do is $90. http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/p...are-everything

In any case, video must be through wifi, its about a gb/hr. Music streaming is over 50Mb/ hr.

It's on a family plan so maybe that's why I get it for $30 a month? It's definitely $30 though.

My dads was grandfathered in as $30 for unlimited, also, Brittany.

I called them again and they said the $30 is for 2gigs of data and I have used 0.833gigs so far. However I did set it to wifi (turned it on airplane mode) and was told it would not use up my data that way. We'll see. I've been using it this way for most of the day, so in the morning I'm gonna check on my data and see if its changed.

It's interesting to read this...I'm getting annoyed not being able to do stuff with my phone (use your smartphone for this! that!) but my phone plan is perfect for me..and $25 a month. I just can't stomach tripling that to get a smartphone.

I just checked and my data usage is now 0.879... But I can't remember if it was 0.833 before or after I switched the 4G off and the wifi on. So I'll have to check again sometime tomorrow to see if its still using data while its on wii mode. Apparently that's happening for some people (it's a glitch in the 5) and I may need to return it.

If you are getting a message about using .879 being over your limit you need to call your cell company today. It doesn't sound like they gave you the correct data plan and if you don't let them know and they have record of 'advising' you it's probably going to be a giant pain not being charged overages.

Just saying this as someone who has worked as a cell phone customer service rep.
