    I am at 0.054 GB (my portion only on shared data) on day nine of my billing cycle. I'm saving $60 a month since switching from the unlimited plan.

    I know the shared plan doesn't work for everyone. It does work for me.

    your usage would be covered under the lowest tier share everything data bracket. I used 6000% the data that you use.

    I supposedly used about 12 GB last cycle, although my phone had a lower number. I did notice the phone started telling me I was reaching a preset limit. I don't have one. I think Big Red hacked the data manager somehow. I don't have a TV, so I'm using the 4G to my advantage.

    I got used to being on wifi because 4G is still not available where I live or work and the wifi is faster, plus my family is on Latitude and Latitude works better on wifi. Through my use of wifi, I realized that I could save a bunch of money each month with the shared plan. I know ... Itís like I am a picket line crosser, voluntarily switching from unlimited to shared. However, not giving Verizon an extra $720 a year was just too tempting to turn down.

    I have Century Link Internet and we are limited to 250 GBs a month, but Century Link does not provide a usage tool so I have no idea how much data I actually use because I can stream Netflix and Amazon movies from my TV. I also watch a lot of movies on DirecTV. I use data in that way too, it just doesn't really count. I am also online constantly, between my computer tower, laptop and tablet ... and phone.

    Soooooooooooooooo, I am not truly a data lightweight. I just spread out my usage among a number of carriers.

    I actually selected the 4 GB package, and that was so that I could have some fun with hotspot from time to time. I've got three smartphones on my plan and we didn't even use an entire GB between us during our last cycle ... LOL! Ok, I must preface by saying that one of the smartphones on my plan is my mom's and the only reason she is on a smartphone is so that we can stalk her on Latitude ... which is one of the reasons the shared plan works for me. I was paying $30 a month for her to stalk us back!

    And of course, as I explained in my previous post, the other two smartphones that actually multi function beyond Latitude are on wifi all the time.

    Yeah, some people like you gain from switching to share everything plans. Me, even if i selected the lowest tier data, I would still be losing $60 or more each month if I were to switch to share everything plans, which is over 40% more. And that doesn't factor in my regular data usage. If i could save $60 a month like you, I would be willing to sacrifice some data, but for me, switching is a lose-lose proposition.

    Wow, none of you use much data. Maybe I'm the data hog but if my data use isn't over 12GB a month I'd be shocked. And mostly all I'm doing is streaming music/video.
    ďAround here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.Ē

    I am with you on that. I have been using roughly 12-14 gigs myself, and the other four phones use about 4. 20 gigs is about right.... That is why we would lose out on shared data

    Major, I had heard about the limit and so I called Century Link and they told me there was a 250gb limit.

    Here is a link that says it went into effect Feb. 2012

    What do you do to use that much data? That seems like a lot.

    Some is downloading movies that can use 1.5 per movie. A lot is programming websites, uploading databases, getting to my office computer from home, streaming music, and everything I just listed goes both ways. Uploading those things and downloading.

    I am a bit old school with my programming. I download everything locally, make sure it works, then post it back up. I have a few databases of 3 gigs or so. In a night I can use 30 gig.

    I keep waiting for VZ to bump me to a business plan, or at least ask why I use so much, but they don't.

    It sounds like Verizon thought about capping its data but changed its mind.

    However, if you want to talk about being hosed .... I am fairly rural and I was stuck with a crappy ma/pa service for a few years and then the evil Hughes Net for two years, which would throttle you down to no access at all after 250 mbs within a rolling 24-hour period.

    Talk about hell. There were a couple of times when there was no explanation at all for the usage and I had to stay off the Internet for 24 hours for the system to recover.

    Now, that's a hose job. Thank goodness Qwest (now Century Link) finally brought DSL to my neighborhood.
