    I think my cap is 2 gig. I watch what I consider to be a lot of youtube videos, but never streamed netflix.

    I don't bother to monitor my usage but I have never been charged overages. --Sorry I don't have more info.

    Mine is 2 gig as well. I mostly check email, check the forum and watch hulu. I've never even come close to going over.

    Verizon and Droid here too. VZW caps at 2gig now and I don't even come close to going over. I stream Netflix, check a few forums, YouTube, Twitter, whatever. Netflix works much better over WiFi. Over 3G it'll just piss you off

    I have an 'unlimited usage' broadband account with Sprint, but never get near 3Gig.
    They were offering 5Gig usage to customers, bue haven't checked lately. I download a lot of pdf files from my company, works great for me!

    ...as far as watching netflix or downloading movies/shows, STAY AWAY from those habits, that uses LOTS of juice! You will rack up a large bill by going over your usage limits! Those habits are suited best for a dsl connection! ...(read...at home!)

    I use my HTC Evo 4G with Sprint and Klink to tether since Sprint blocked PDAnet.

    PDAnet is a service app... meaning you have to pay the monthly fee just to login to a secure website (https). Meaning Facebook or simply email. For those of you tethering your phone (Android) I would suggest looking up EasyTether on the market. It only takes a one-time payment of $10 for complete access and if you do it right, you can swap devices on the same account so you never have to pay again.

    Just my .02.
