    So I'm looking into getting a GS4 with T-Mobile since they have the most reasonable plans.
    I'm just wondering if the 2.5 GB data plan will be enough for me.
    I'm almost always connected to WiFi, I'd say about 90-95% of the time.
    The only time I would be without WiFi is for about 3-5 hours on Saturdays and some Sundays combined.
    During that time I'll mostly be tweeting and lightly surfing the web.
    What would you guys suggest I get?

    That good enough to fit your needs. People that use the web a lot can get along with that amount of data. I had the 5gb plan and I averaged 3gb a month. That is more than enough for you.

    Probably. I'm almost never on wifi and I used 6.5 gigs last month.

    I use a very similar amount, being near Wi-Fi often and I used 700mb last month.

    Yeah that much wifi time would mean the 2.5 GB plan would work for you.

    I stream a lot at work off wifi so I need the unlimited .

    I actually ended up going with the 500MB plan and i'm glad I did.
    As I stated earlier, i'm only without WiFi for a few hours a week.
    Today while I was out and about I had my 4g on the whole time and I pretty much tweeted the entire time, I only used 20mb.
    I was really shocked and pleased!
    I was alsi shocked tgat T-Mobile's 4g is excellent, because I have heard horror stories.

    Oh and also the battery on this thing is awesome!
    7 hours of extremely heavy usage and i'm still at 42%

    Is it your only source of Internet?
    Because since the beginning of August I've only used 50.8MB, but I'm almost always connected to Wi-Fi.

    Since they want to move everything to the cloud you might need more than that...

    I was streaming Google Play music and I had like 900 mb in one day of streaming. But I have the unlimited data plan.

    I have 4 lines on tmobile (family plan pretty much) 3 uses 500mb of 4g plan, the 3 of us who uses 500mb only use up about 350mb average, a month. We are mostly on wifi. Glad you got the 500mb. Remember if you go over it only slows down... the speeds are horrible but you still have internet lol.

    how do you get that much battery life. ive had the phone for 2-3 months and its not as good as yours. i guess i messed up my battery by keeping it plugged in overnight.

    Yeah, I'm glad I went with the 500mb also. I thought I'd be using more data than I actually am, so I thought I was taking a chance, but it ended up working out perfectly!

    I have no idea how I get so much battery life! Must be luck, I guess. lol I've noticed that I get up to 9 hours out of this thing.

    Go read the thread at XDA named "insanely better battery life when idle" for good tips on greatly improving battery usage over stock settings.
