    I think I might win for highest data usage with Verizon unlimited LTE data. 406 gb

    I used 63gb one month and thought that was a lot.

    That's a lot of data - what is your plan when Verizon ends the grandfathering to unlimited plans?

    I really don't think its possible to use that much data, unless u are deliberately trying to. In which case, is just plain stupid.

    *rolls eyes* I refuse to believe that this is anything but deliberately trying to use as much as possible 'just because'. You're one of the reasons they took it away to begin with.

    And Verizon lies. Even if I didn't have unlimited it doesn't clog the towers. If I had the 2gb plan if still use it. All I'm doing is using it longer. Data is data. Don't be jealous that I'm smarter than paying for cable internet and phone when I can use a buddy's username and password for watch espn for free and have faster internet speeds in which to download. If people we smart they would keep unlimited and use the loophole or buy outright or add a line. To me unlimited is worth it

    Sorry, but I'm calling BS on this for 1 reason. It says your cycle ends on 11-03, which means it started October 4th. You used 400 GB of data in 22 hours? It also says your estimate was as of 00:43, which technically means you used 400 GB of data in 43 minutes. I applaud your effort though sir. Looks like you fooled a lot of people.

    I don't understand why anyone would be jealous. You sound really cheap or poor. I mean you have to mooch what your friend pays for. You think that's something anyone else would want to do or be proud of? I would bet that in time you'll think about self respect in your life. But I still hope the best for you.

    Well said.
    Also with Verizon you cant talk and use data at the same time.
    So what do you do when you're home tethering to a bunch of devices or streaming or downloading a file and someone decides to call?
    The call interrupts everything and you either wait till it stops ringing and goes to voicemail to use data again or take the call and use the internet later when you hang up.
    Either way I wouldn't put so much stress on my phone to make it as a 24hour home wireless router. It eats up lots of battery to tether and to constantly charge and tether for many hours a day would destroy the battery and most likely cause issues with the phone down the road.
    Besides the fact that the pic is fake to be proud of something like that is childish IMO.

    Could be, I though it was 0:43 am ? I don't have V so I don't know their stat apps.


    Either way, congrats on being on Verizon OP, if you were in AT&T you would have been LONG gone. I appreciate personally you are also not in AT&T, thanks.

    I'm surprised the OP, being brand new to the forum, would make his first posts on something that is silly at best in trying to brag about his data usage. You don't get a prize for this, and others scoff at him. Some of these posts that absolutely do not make any sense. Age perhaps is the reason. :eek:

    You can move the SIM to a Cisco router with a 4G LTE EHWIC. I did this with mine while waiting for Comcast to install service at my new place. Not many people have a Cisco router with the hardware at home but a cheap mifi box works as well.

    I don't intentionally abuse my service but I do use it anytime I don't have reliable internet. Since I travel, this is about 40-80GB/mo.

    No I took a screen shot at the end of my billing cycle which technically ends on the 3rd and it usually resets on the 4th ill post another pic if that will make u all happy and it shows only 403 gb and Verizon doesn't automatically update and reset to 0. I have constantly used 200+ gb a month this month I just got the watch espn app so that's most of itand I have been looking and reading this forum for years just finally decided to join to post. And it's not cheap it's smart. In this economy why not try to save as much money as possible.
