1. Yes.

2. Yes. Some phones even let you set alerts and turn off your data when it gets too close to the limit.

3. Yes. Data is for internet surfing, downloads, and picture messages when not connected to Wi-Fi.

@peachacid:  Awesome! Which phone are you getting? I have the Galaxy S4 (and Verizon) and it’s amazing.

@peachacid:  You can log into MyVerizon (either from your computer or through your phone) and there is a place where you can view your monthly data usage — this will help you get an idea of how much you’re using now, just to make sure you get the plan with the right amount so you don’t go over and have to pay $$$$$.

@peachacid:  We actually just switched our plan yesterday. We had 700 shared minutes of talk, and 250 text messages each, with 2GB per line (with verizon). With that sort of plan, the 2GB is the smallest you can get. But we use maybe 100MB or so a month each (we’re usually connect to wifi, at work and at home). We switched to a shared plan where there’s unlimited talk and text and 500MB shared data for the month. I wish there was another option, because we don’t need unlimited talk and text, but we’ll still save about $20/month.

We also just upgraded our phones…ordered new ones through Amazon because it was cheaper.
