    Seeing as more people than I thought paid full price for their iPhones, or got in during the glitch, I'm curious how many GB's y'all are pulling down.

    It worth the full price in your opinion?

    Please, only Verizon customers please. Yes, we know AT&T has "unlimited" and so does Sprint but let's get real, not truly unlimited like Verizon. No throttling even after 30GB this month and 102GB last month.

    Yes it's worth it and also cheaper. $59.99 a month for unlimited text and 450 minutes talk + $29.99 for unlimited data = $90 a month. Current offer for $60 for 2gb of data and $40 for the device to get unlimited data and talk = $100 per month. Over a 2 year period, I save $240 by staying on unlimited.

    I use, on average, 5-7GB each month. Some months I'll use over 12GB. I love having no limits on my data!

    I think I average 9gb a month. My mom used to use only like 200mb per month before when she had the iPhone 4 but after she switched to Galaxy Note 2, she's been consistently using 10gb per month watching tons of videos on her phone. We get free internet at our apartment but it's complete crap so that's why she watches stuff on her phone rather than on her computer.

    I have unlimited but rarely ever use more than 1GB. It seems I have wifi everywhere. Even our supermarkets have free wifi now. I have an old grandfathered Alltel account that gives me unlimited data, 500 anytime minutes, a bunch of friends and family, 7pm nights and unlimited messages - all for $69/mo

    They keep bugging me with the $60/mo unlimited talk and text and 2Gb of data loyalty plan. But for the $10 savings, I'm not willing to give up the unlimited data even though I don't really use it. Probably silly but I'm going down with the ship.

    Anyone else getting a discount on everything? Even your data? My employee discount is on minutes, messaging and data and hotspot.

    If my usage was less than 5gb/mo it would come out close either way- 2 year contract vs no contract. But I use over 5gb every month.

    geeze! idk how some people can get past 10-12 GB's a month on here! are you all tethering of your hotspot feature? I've had my Unlimited Data on my line since the iPhone 4 for Verizon released. Only when i switched to the iPhone 5(bought at full price) my data sky-rocketed beyond 2-4GB's a month because of LTE. I do find it really convenient because i rarely go on WiFi ever, even if it's available. i find that LTE is much faster than any WiFi that i connect to in my area or at my place. I'm on a family plan and pay 85+ for my share and i'm not sure how long i can keep doing that. but it's nice. I wonder what the next iPhone has in store because that'll be the next device that i'm gonna be paying full price for.

    I had unlimited until the share everything plans came out and I switched our family plan to a 2gb option. WiFi is everywhere so I've never used more than 700mb in a billing period and the others.on my plan barely know how to check their email. Easy choice for the unlimited txt & talk.

    I've got a discount on minutes, text, and data and the hotspot. And as long as you've got a family plan, you can always use another lines upgrade, or transfer your upgrade to another line to keep unlimited and get a new device at 2yr contract pricing.

    I took the deal to get sub pricing and keep large data limit. It's now at 6gb for $30 a month, but I use around 3-4 so happy with the compromise.

    Anyone else get the verizon email during the promo period last year (and maybe even this year) to drop unlimited in favor of 6GB for $30?? Just curious. They sent It multiple times Lol

    My typical low is 16GB, but I spike up to 80GB depending on how much work I have during the month. This month I'm at 15 days in and 25GB used.

    I rarely use WiFi as my LTE connection is far faster than any free WiFi network I've used. Hell it is even faster than my Comcast at home, though I only use the hotspot at home when I am having an outage with Comcast.

    I pay $150/mo. $99 unlimited voice/text/sms, $30 unlimited data, $20 unlimited hotspot. Well worth it to me.

    I am around 1 GB per month. Wifi is just so prevalent anymore. I was sad to see my unlimited go, but in reality it probably won't matter unless I am traveling and can't access Wifi.

    I got an upgrade in Aug and unlimited went away when I purchased iPhone 5 and I didn't know there was a way to keep it and Verizon rep didn't tell me so I lost it but after numerous calls Im finally getting it back after being with them for 10+ years

    We're on the Family Share Plan. 4 phones with 4 gb per month. We all use wifi 99.9% of the time. We probably actually use about 2 gb a month.
