Bold with who? AT&T? You might still be able to get unlimited data. I could be wrong.

But 2 GB is definitely small for me. I use over 1 GB a month but I kept my unlimited.

How do you use your phone's data? Do you stream a lot of music through Pandora or watch streaming videos? Do you have Wi-Fi at your house, or other places you'll frequently be at?

I lost my Bold 9700 in Seattle about a month ago and att charges 125 for a replacement, so I settled for an iphone (made the switch 2 weeks ago).

I don't have wifi at my place, so I use a lot of data. I hit 1GB a week after I received my phone (lots of app downloading). I then searched on the forums on how to receive unlimited data and thats what I did.

I think what I miss the most about my blackberry is that all my friends have blackberries and we all bbm eachother. I also kind of miss physical buttons. Other than that, the phone is sweet!
