Can anyone tell me if when you are using Yahoo messenger and video calling (Webcam) is that using a lot of mbs?  Is it similar to downloading video's or email?  Can't really get answers from Verizon.  Thanks

There isn't really a way to tell you the exact amount of bandwidth you would being use unless you are using some kind of software that tracks it in real time.

Using Yahoo messenger alone takes up very little bandwidth. Adding video calling adds more, but still not to much. It would be similar to downloading video's.

I use Skype for video chats all of the time and I have never gone over 5GB a month just by doing that and normal internet surfing and email.
