    I stream all my music and podcasts. I don't even have a SiriusXM receiver in my van anymore.

    I thought you did get hosed at first. I didn't know there was a 10gb limit on phone hotspot. I might have to bring my old jetpack type thing out of retirement if I can get a similar deal

      From what I've read it is not limited, but after 10 Gb it will be teottled to 3g. But I've been wrong once on this tread

      i stream my Pandora for maybe an hour or two....60-80 MBs of Data only....it pretty easy on data...unlike Netflix or TV stations....
      I think I posted earlier Verizons unlimited and rollover doesn't come without strings attached.......

      Since I'm not the most tech savvy with tablets. In a rush I ordered one. I'm going to have to return the one I ordered after finding out about the 10G limit and finding out the tablet is WiFi only. I was planning on adding it to my account for shared data. But not possible with this one. 10G isn't going to cut it for what I was planning :rolleyes:

      Yeah, they're are a lot of tablets that are WiFi only. That's fine for many people, but not us.

      My mistake. I thought it was a 10GB limit on the phone wifi hot spot. That was one of the reasons I decided to keep the Jetpack. I will go with the Jetpack for awhile. If I don't use the extra gigs I can always cancel it.

      I got the new T-Mobile promotion today (isn't competition great?) 2 lines for $100 including taxes and fees. 28gb before depriortization, 10 Gb hotspot.

      Verizon has a 15% discount for military veterans. Just need a DD14, VA Medical Card or equivalent. Only comes off the data plan. Not the access fees.

      I'm keeping my 16 GB plan for now. Unlimited would cost me about $19 more a month. Since I rarely use more than 10 I can't justify paying more for something I won't use.

      That's good. That's what their site says also. Must have been a boo boo on the commercial. They left out the after part
