    I think some people are grandfathered in from older plans, same with the iPhone.

    I've only used 49mb so far, been mostly on wifi.

    Got the original unlimited plan on original iPad and simply rolled it over to this one. What's fun is, it's still unlimited on my first one too.

    Have only been off wifi for 20 mins or so but burned through almost 200mb in that 20 mins. The cell connection is almost as fast as my wireless connection at home.

    Zero, zilch, none. I'll get data when I travel. I got the LTE model over the wi-fi mostly for the GPS which doesn't need a data plan. When I travel I'll buy data. To me, paying for data so I can run around town lugging an iPad and looking like a dork just doesn't do it. :p That's why I have a GNex with a 4"+ screen and pay for data for that. ;) That's dorky enough!

    Heck, my cell connection is even faster that my wi-fi connection at home. I get about 20-25 down/and 12-15 up on average at home. I get twice that on my LTE connection.

    I'm thinking about calling Verizon and upgrading my internet speeds because I just can't have my cellular connection outdoing my FiOS.

    Did you do this with AT&T or Verizon? I've been interested in doing the same and have been told by AT&T that it was not possible

    Verizon but I remember reading that AT&T will disable your data for a month if you do what I did.

    350mb. Been using it very sparingly. Only turn it on when needed. Wifi for everything else.

    457MB since Friday on my Verizon model....This was with me using my Ipad and 5 friends hooking their laptops up via hotspot and using it for about 4-5 hrs Saturday. Besides them using my data, I'd say I used about 150 of the 457.

    How did you manage to "spread" the unlimited plan to two iPads? I transferred mine from iPad 1 to the new iPad and then signed up for a separate plan for the first iPad. I'm going to be very pissed if I could have kept both and paid the same :mad: Or at least kept unlimited on both.

    350 MB on Verizon 1 GB plan. That was all mostly from one sitting browsing the web to test LTE out.

    Verizon doesn't have an unlimited tablet plan and won't let you just switch your iPhone data plan to your iPad, you may want to make sure your reading it right
