    Wow, you all use a lot of data. It would take me 4 months to get to 2gigs. I primarily use wifi at my house. Don't get me wrong, I'll be pissed if they do pull that stunt off. Otherwise I may have to milk my 2 X's for a VERY long time.

    It really wouldn't surprise me if VZW did this just to appease Apple. I rarely use tethering, just to play on the laptop away from home, and burn through 2GB in a week.

    What do you mean by "milk your X's?"

    Take good care of them so I don't have to upgrade and have my plan changed. I will in the end, sooner or later. And I can easily deal with 2 gigs per month. It's just the point of them going that route that gets me all riled up. Unfortunately it provides the best service, so I can be mad, but it won't do me any good.

    This may sound stupid, but when I had my DX I was typically using between 2 and 3 GB per month with 3G. Now that I have 4G, I eat up data. No real changes in how I use my phone. The 4G is just so much faster, you can load several web pages in the time it takes to load just one on 3G. You find yourself surfing on your phone alot more, in the same amount of time. That make sense? Lol.

    They sell X's on Amazon or eBay, but idk the cost. If you find a good deal, order it if you want to, then go to VZW when the time comes to replace your X, then it won't count as upgrade and you should be able to keep your unlimited data. In 2009, I had a flip phone (my last flip phone I will ever have), and my Mum ordered me an LG enV off eBay, and it didn't cost anything at VZW other than activation fee. i had that until my Mum upgraded from her Samsung Rogue to her DROIDX, which she gave me 6 months before I found out I was due for upgrade, then 6 months later I upgraded to my X. I was due for an upgrade for longer than I found out, but we never knew I was due for one until then

    But when I got my Mum's old Sammy Rogue, it didn't count as an upgrade. I'm going to stick with the X for a very long time. When my X reaches it's natural EOL, I will just order a new one off the internet
