    Default How much can I do with 5GB of data?

    I am planning on going with Verizon when my contract with Sprint ends. The plan I'm going for should include unlimited call & text with 5GB of data usage per month. My question is how much can I do with 5GB? I will mainly be using it for web surfing, checking e-mails, Facebook, downloading & playing games and an occasional YouTube video. No music or movie downloading. Whenever i'm at home i use WiFi. In hours, how much do you think that I will be able to do per month? Thanks

    Sounds like you wouldn't even need 5GB then. But you would be able to do up to 5GB of funness.

    What phone do you have now? Can you check your usage on your current phone?

    Unless you are doing all that on your phone every minute of the day, I would bet that won't require 5GB. I do about the same and the only time I went over 2GB, that I remember, was a few months ago when I redownloaded all my apps on my phone multiple times in a month (rooted, different roms).

    You probably won't use all 5GB. I'd start with 2GB (which is doubled to 4GB now) and change my plan if needed. I don't even use 5GB on my Droid Bionic and I am always using LTE.

    5gb May be too much. I stream music about 2-3 hours a day 5 days a week. About 2-3 hours of internet a week and I would not hit 5gb.

    Giving your usage and the fact that speeds are only reduced when data cap is reached I don't think you need 5 gigabytes to is more than sufficient could even go with 1 probably. I have a question for you. Why are you leaving Sprint what has happened with them you have been unsatisfactory with. Just curious I don't work for them or nothing I just have the service and I like it. Not the Jeep is still there are many cheaper options such as Boost Mobile and Sprint network works for you Cricket Wireless AT&T and mint Sim which is a prepaid T-Mobile gives you service 2 gigabytes a month for $22 if you pay Upfront for year. Keep in mind if you switch you will have to probably get a new phone unless you really need Verizon network look elsewhere there are the most expensive usually but not always. Also looks like Republic Wireless has good plans in the $30 range 2 gigabyte. Many options out there.
