    I know using Netflix on 3G uses A LOT of data (I'm with AT&T). What if I loaded the movie at my house on WIFI and then kept it playing until I left my WIFI area but it still was playing. Would it be using data? Is there any way to watch Netflix without having it eat up my 2 GB of data?

    Thanks guys.

    Nope. It doesn't load videos like the default media player does. It streams them as you watch. It may buffer a few seconds but that's about it.

    Am I correct in assuming the same goes for all idevices? I was curious about using netflix on an ipad while travelling, specifically while going in and out of coverage areas. No way to increase that buffer at all?
