    My Verizon billing cycle starts over on the 1st of each month. This is October 3rd and it says I've used 2 GB of data already on 4G??? I'm glad I still have unlimited data. I've watched a few shows on HBO Go but that's all I can think of that would've used that much data. I can't imagine being limited to 2 GB. It obviously would not be enough with 4G LTE.

    A few shows on HBO, you're lucky it's only 2GB.

    You're watching video. Video uses a lot of data. What's the surprise here?

    I watched video on 3G as well and don't recall ever using so much data this fast. My point is that how does Verizon think offering 2GB of data for $30 is reasonable when it used to be $30 for unlimited data.

    I did the bug fix software update on Monday.

    I was going to say the same.
    Video streaming will use up your data very quickly.

    Watching a couple HBO mobile shows shouldnt hit 2GB in a couple days, adult movies on the other hand...

    Actually video streaming or Facetime should eat up data fairly quickly.

    A typical hour video on Netflix is about half a GB. So it depends how long the videos were.

    Two one hour shows at the most on HBO Go and maybe a couple short youtube videos. Maybe its not right on the My Verizon app, but I was shocked to see it said I'd used that already.
