    Had this phone since the 7th and over 2GB of data have been used. I'd say I used this phone moderately for browsing websites and fb'ing. It's sooo nice to see Sprint to continue the unlimited data. Forget the 2GB capped data plan ($25) from at&t!!!!

    I got you beat. Had mine since the 4th and I am at 4.3 GB right now.

    I need to add that my phone had a bit of a flaky moment where it was constantly receiving and sending data. I had to do a hard reset because it was freaking me out.

    I have had my evo since the 4th and just topped 8GB. I love my data and with the $10 fee, I will use it at my will.

    How do you guys use so much data? I want to use that much!
    Streaming music?


    Though I guess I've been using WIFI a lot... since it's summer and I'm home.

    I definitely don't see it as a contest to abuse data, but that's why I got the Evo. I used tons of data on my iPhone from downloading various files, streaming music/video, light tethering (no torrents ever), etc. After a while it adds up, but I am constantly using my phone for data. When I saw the tiered data plans for ATT I was amazed. Those are horrid deals for data, period. Save only $5 and you get 2GB compared to unlimited for $30? What was the point? 2GB of data should costs you maybe $10-15 tops. I hate this crap carriers are doing with their data plans (well just ATT now, but soon there will be followers).

    I used 10gb from 6/04 to 6/20, and since 6/20 I've used 8gb.

    I use PDAnet to tether for 10 hrs a day 4 days a week at work, that's probably what does it.

    I know that's not right...

    I think they're looking at their sprint account.

    Speaking of data.....while using 3G, there's a cap at 5GB on the Everything Data, Any Mobile, Anytime plan???? I thought having this plan would garner unlimited data????

    That 5GB cap only applies when using a Sprint aircard, not a smartphone.

    How do you tether and not lose battery power to the point of the phone shutting off??

    Keeping it plugged in to charge while tethering.

    Thread post of I got with a massive bill because I tethered without a tethering plan and didn't use common sense in 3-2-1.........

    Dude, you can tether without a tethering provision and Sprint doesn't care, but you have to use common sense. 20GB's a month is going to get their attention.

    Exactly...that's the type that all carriers are looking to rid themselves of. Abusing the system will cost us all. If people want to tether that much you need to fork over the $30 extra.

    I disagree. I've been doing this for over a year without any problems.

    See that worries me, I've used 12GBs according to Sprint's website and I haven't tethered one bit! I still have an aircard I use for things like that. So... hopefully I don't get in trouble for something I didn't do... It's what that 10/month data add-on is for anyways right?

    Then you are fine. Your use is high but you are within the TOS. Data use is unlimited when used by your phone and not tethering.
