How much Data do you use?
With AT&T creating tiered plans and potentially Verizon doing the same. How much data do you use a month on your Droid?
I've been using just less than 2 gig per month.

Less than 1GB (around 200MB on average)

When I had a Blackberry I normally used about 50-70 megs. With my Droid I'm averaging about 1.5 GB per month. Actually having a phone with real web and apps makes me use it all the time. Plus having pdanet for trips out of town has really been awesome.

about 600 MB for me, though that number will probably be going up soon as i just got a new netbook and am going to start tethering
i also use wifi constantly at home, so that probably skews it a bit as well

Droid w/ Verizon here... I use anywhere between 500MB on a low month to 1.1GB on a high month and average somewhere in the middle most months.
I sure hope Verizon doesn't follow AT&T's modifications. I think it's stupid for AT&T to make their customers pay $15 for only 200MB and $25 for 2GB. It's just not the right configuration to go from $30 for 5GB of data. A better price plan would be $15 for 500MB, $20 for 750MB, and $25 for 3GB. That sounds more reasonable and caters to several tiers of data users. Low, Medium, and High.
Whatever Verizon does, I'll be grandfathered in. Not that I use the 5GB, I just think it's the right price/GB combination.

I wouldn't count on grandfathering. I would think they would rather give you a one-time reduction of early termination fee or something. Think about how many droids and incredibles are out there. If they can make more money off of them due to data fees, they'll do it.
I used about 1gig a month for the first 3 months, now I float between 200 and 500 mb. Thank you to all of the people tethering and downloading roms, daily, so that I'm not in the highest data using group. :-)

Many of us use their phones at work as work firewalls will block certain sites (such as facebook or twitter). I do some light tethering while at the ladie's place as she has no broadband (gasp!) and no open networks within range. Most of my traffic is endless surfing, tons of streaming audio (Pandora is on quite a bit) and I have wifi disabled on my phone, which really saves on the battery life.
I push around 4 GB a month.
Oh yes, I recently got a new headunit (car cd player) that will play & control mp3 players hooked via audio cable. I was able to get my droid to output my Pandroa to my car speakers!
