    So I'm constantly streaming pandora on my phone when I'm
    Home. Since I have wifi at home my data will not be used. Now I'd like to use pandora while driving into work and back home.
    Does anyone know how much data pandora uses in let's say in 30 minutes ?
    I would like to know this, so I do not go over my 2gb limit and get throttled.

    I feel that allot more ppl out there would benefit from knowing how much data they are using on any giving app. It's like budgeting money but in this instance I'll be budgeting my data usage.

    From past experience, one song roughly 4 minutes ranges from 1.5-3MB of data. Of course it all depends but that is what I have seen on average.

    Most networks offer some kind of web or dedicated app with a Dashboard that will tell you your data usage. You could note the starting point and the ending point at the end of a day and calculate how much data you used.
