I am not exactly which forum to put this under, but I have a question regarding data consumption on any of the iphones that I hope someone can help me with. I am considering canceling an xm radio subscription and changing my wife's phone over to an iphone for her to use in her van instead. Other than her downloading songs via itunes and playing the songs through the van, is there any alternative that would allow streaming music that does not consume a lot of data? She will be on a 2 GB plan from Verizon and I am not sure of what options are available. I would say Pandora, but I am sure that probably most streaming services require a lot of data. Thanks for the help!

To sort of put it in perspective, I don't stream music at all... Just browse, watch the occasional YouTube video over 3G, and use apps that require data.
Even at that, I'm still pushing just over 1GB of data used, WITHOUT streaming music. And I'm not exactly a 'Power' user, but factor in the standard app/browsing use with the streaming music, and you'll easily have yourself more than 2GB worth of data used.
