Data Usage Audit

How much data do you use?

As the end of my Verizon contract approaches, I’m starting to wonder whether or not I could lower my data plan from the unlimited plan it is now, to the paid plan option. In order to do this, I had to go over a year’s worth of bills and check my data usage. I have to say I am surprised at the amount of data I use, I thought I used more, but then again, my phone was “dead” for half of the past year and I couldn’t use it to it’s full potential.

I’m not sure why March 2010’s usage was so high. Probably all that gchatting on my cell. Regardless of the lower usage for the rest of the year, unless Verizon gets a 200MB plan, I guess I’m sticking to the unlimited plan.

Text messages on the other hand, didn’t seem to be affected by my “dead” phone. I’ve slowly stopped texting and started doing more emailing/tweeting, however, the text count is still too high to go from unlimited to 500 per month.

So the new plan? Not much of a new plan, I’ll still need unlimited data/text.
