I need internet and every company here has a data cap so like 1gb or 5gb sect. Well i can only afford the 1.5gb. Would that be enough to use facebook and youtube and my college class work???  I use the internet a lot.

I think I have 2gb and used to go over my data every single month. Dh threatened to turn my phone off....we finally compromised by getting wifi at home. My phone is always connected to the wifi now.

DH is grandfathered in to unlimited data on his iPhone 4. I told him he can NEVER upgrade.

I just saw a commercial where Time Warmer was offering internet at home for pretty cheap. WIFI is what you need, either that or start hanging out at Starbucks

You can tether your laptop to your phone so it will use your unlimited data from your phone instead of having an internet service at home.

This.

I'm always connected to WiFi. Unless I am in the car and I need to use my mapquest app.

I may increase it to 4, that way we both get 2gbs. Just because my oldest will be on auditions a lot shortly.

Does your phone have hot spot availability ? If your phone data is unlimited then you would be good to go.

Use your phone for youtube and FB. Use your laptop for school work only.
