    I have used about 150 MB so far. I use Wifi most the time, but I have downloaded a few apps on the 3G when I wasn't at home.

    Off topic, but since this unlimited data for the iPhone is supposedly for a limited time if we buy a new phone for full retail and not sign a contract will we be able to keep the unlimited plan? I figure you would only be forced to choose another data plan if they change only if you upgrade and have to sign another contract, correct?

    i think its should be for the life of the contract, so the device shouldn't make a difference.

    The iPhone is not usable, period, on VZW with less than 3G speeds.
    Verizon 2G (1X) is faster than EDGE. About 2x faster. It's definitely usable, just not fast.

    I think they are just offering it for a limited time. Once you have it you have it, as far as I know. The only time I see them taking it away is with the LTE plans.

    When I end up with the little "o" icon and have slow data I have to enter airplane mode to get 3G back. I definitely don't have the patience needed to wait 30 seconds or longer for a webpage to load lol

    Speaking of 1X, has anyone had issues with the phone switching to 1X when you had a pretty good signal? I never go under 3 bars within my house and all of a sudden I will see that it has switched to the "o" instead of 3G. This happens way too often for my liking..any advice on what this might mean? I would think with at least 3 bars I would stay on 3G constantly. I live just a couple of miles from a tower, also.
