    Yes.

    Bottom line: Save the YouTube watching for when you have WiFi available.

    I've been wondering why I don't go over 2gig with my iPhone. Reading this post made it click. WiFi usage doesn't count. I surf the net a lot and which some videos here and there. I've also been using Pandora more and more in the car. The most that I've used in a month is 1.8g (unlimited plan). Trying to decide if I should go with a shared plan when I purchase my iPad or keep the unlimited on my phone and go with a separate plan for the iPad.
