    (on the phone and/or via wifi tethering)

    my personal experience is about 90gb to 95gb a month and haven't
    heard anything from VZW over the last couple of years. (never
    lower than 78gb per month during all this time)

    the only problem is that the continuous wifi tethering has casued the
    Galaxy Nexus to heat up a LOT, especially when the batter is being
    charged at the same time.

    Op either has a serious porn addiction or is involved in suspicious activities. I could never, on my own, download 100GB of legal stuff per month. Unless this is an extreme, but legit case. Either way, you shouldn't be relying on tethering for this amount of data.

    It's people like you who ruined unlimited data!

    No Verizon killed unlimited because they saw they can get more money out y'all chumps without unlimited data blame the company not the consumers. I and a buddy of mine use 25gb per month but sprint is still unlimited lol

    The problem is you people are not using your unlimited data plan for your phone, you are using it for your computer with tethering, that's the problem. No way in hell do you use 100gb of data without tethering.

    100GB without tether is still easy! Ever heard of the Wed Dock and Lap Dock for the Droid Razr? I got one last week and within a week I went from only using a Gb or 2 on Youtube to over 12GB not including Netflix, and the actual work I got done on the Web Dock. I absolutely love this thing but it can CHUG down data, especially on 4G LTE. Now I do tether but only when neccessary, most of my data goes to Pandora / iHeartRadio and then Netflix followed by Youtube. Each of these are well above 10GB each!

    P.S. I'm not counting from Verizon's official data counter because that counts the FoxFi usage, for some reason the built in data counter on my Droid Razr doesn't count the tether and theres only a discrepancy of about 5GB between the two which is only a fraction of how much I use month to month.

    How do you guys have time to even sit there and stream this stuff? Do you have a job where you can stream movies all day? I want that job :-)

    Im in high school and have free periods plus since its such a small school (theres only 50 students in both 9th and 10th grade, its a Pre-Collegiate Academy so theres only 9-10 grade) that we are basically aloud to do whatever we want all day. Whether it be face-booking, tweeting, looking on Android Central, YouTubing, etc. our teachers dont care as long as we get the work done and maintain our grades! I typically just have iHeartRadio / Pandora or some random Netflix show streaming in the background all day just to listen to while doing my work. Also, when I get home I use the Web Dock instead of using my Laptop for homework because its faster and I can do everything on my big screen at home rather than my small 15 inch MacBook Pro. Of course this is all done on 4G LTE because my home WiFi connection sucks.

    Those of you complaining are acting like a bunch of kids. We get it you lost your unlimited data because the rep told you to change your plan or you upgraded your phone and you aren't smart enough to do with about it.

    To the OP, there was a guy on a different board who tethered 3 things to the phone and rang up 400 gigs regularly.

    Unlimited data was when everybody used data pertaining to the device that was registered to that plan. Now that people are tethering a boatload of devices to that device it is overloading the network. So if a carrier has lets say 60million subscribers , it was meant to be unlimited for 60 million devices. So if you count the amount of devices being tethered, the amount of devices straining the network is probably triple at the least if now quadruple. How is the network suppose to sustain that? I don't work for any of the carriers, but lets just use some common sense here. I am sick of the bad apples(AAPL too) messing up for everyone.

    Pretty sure that's not accurate. Consider almost everyone with a smart phone on Verizon had unlimited data. There were still people tethering, racking up a lot of data usage. Now with lots of people, and the average person for example wants a smart phone so they make a plan that limits data. Now there is a huge drop in the actual amount of people with unlimited data. There is a remaining small percentage of people that actually still have unlimited and you're saying that small percentage is weighing down Verizons massive network?

    I'm not buying that.

    You do realize that when Verizon purchased the 4G LTE Spectrum they agreed to not block any applications or programs from its users. Including tethering apps such as FoxFi, etc. The agreement with the FCC also says something about tethering which is why Verizon was fined a few million dollars for charging customers to tether. If Verizon thought their network couldn't handle everyone tethering then why would they have accepted those stipulations?

    Actually I still have unlimited and only rack up 3-4 gb. Maybe 5 on a really heavy month. I watch netflix, stream podcasts/music all the time, watch YouTube, not to mention browsing and maps.
    I'm just puzzled how some people are able to get up into the 100s of gb without tethering.
    But thanks for jumping to uneducated conclusions.

    Who says heavy data users are clogging up Verizon? I get mailers every month or so urging me to get a stand alone hot spot to replace my home DSL. That's how worried Verizon is about extra data use. I've already replaced DSL with my GNex. My daughter and I both tether off my phone and use 40 to 50 gigs a month. All the folks whining here about poor Verizon's bandwidth don't seem to understand that they built it to sell data. They got rid of unlimited plans so they could maximize their profits from their network. If it gets overloaded they'll expand it. Relax. Verizon is just fine. My heavy data use isn't hurting anybody.

    If Sprint had good service they would have followed everybody else. Verizon isn't the only company to get rid of unlimited data.

    Verizon to stop blocking tethering apps, pay $1.25 million fine to FCC - Yahoo! News
    exactly! it is illegal for Verizon to block tethering applications therefore must allow it
