    OFF OF WIFI I will probably stream about an hour of online radio. half an hour of youtube or netflix. and probably an hour of internet browsing/facebook a day. Everything else will be on wifi.

    Will the 2g data play from Verizon I purchased be enough?

    Probably not. Streaming and 2GB data caps don't play well together.

    Can't you see what you use now?

    Most likely no.

    I use that sort of stuff and I use between 1.5gb and 5gb a month. I'm on unlimited tho so I don't really think about it. Use WiFi whenever you have a chance. Don't want to chance going over. That would suck.

    I'm SO glad I didn't bite at the save $5 a month by getting rid of your data plan crap AT&T pulled. Now that there's iCloud and other streaming services, the peace of mind that comes with no having to watch what I do with my phone is worth that extra bit of cash.

    No, I can't see what I use now. I have a very old blackberry and don't really use it for anything other than texting/calling. I guess it will have to do because I can't afford anything more haha. times are tough

    ----------

    If 2g ended up not being enough for me would I be able to go in mid-contract and up it o 5g?

    Yeah, you should. Without a problem.

    Data is going to be so expensive for people who aren't on unlimited plans. This could get ugly.

    Yeah I think it's so dumb AT&T users can't do unlimited anymore

    I really wanted to go with sprint(for the unlimited data), but their coverage in my area is pretty ****.

    Other than that, i'm a new customer so I don't have any "grandfathered" unlimited plans... you just can't get em' anymore I guess...
