Are you saying that you used 3 megabytes in one week? If so, that is remarkably low for internet usage on mobile broadband, much less for Facebook. Even if it was 3GB for a single week, there are higher data allowances available now.

On just Facebook? I do that about every 5 days, but I am watching videos and listening to hometown radio stations. Facebook alone won't generate that kind of usage

Verizon got way too greedy with data.. more so offering only data'packs'.. My wife has an older plan that I'm paying $30/ month for unlimited data usage.. Verizon must be hating me big time for all of the streaming music/video we use.. Shame on Verizon for milking us with packs instead of offering unlimited usage like other carriers..

I think the problem is ultimately that there isn't much information provided in the original post to go on. These community boards are actually pretty decent for help with thinking about alternative plan options and thinking outside of the box we have ourselves in. If you give us an idea about what plans you have and what your usage looks like, we might be able to help you find a good or better option.

Hello side5464,

Whoa, no need to toss your Mifi in a drawer! I'm glad you love your Mifi device so let's make sure you are comfortable your service plan, too. Facebook does contribute to data usage; however, 3 GB is a high amount to incur in one week. I have included some quick tips that will prove helpful.

I highly recommend making sure your Mifi is not connected when not in use. Often our PCs or tablets will perform updates and access background data. I wanted to mention this because these updates can cause data usage to jump up, unexpectedly.

The good news is that we do have different layers of data plans for our customers to choose from. Please take a moment to review the details of our Share Everything plans, here http://bit.ly/xdDajD .

I have also included a link to our Data Calculator http://bit.ly/A2Oo3K; where you can estimate your monthly usage to help assess whether a plan change is necessary.

Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns. Your satisfaction is key to our company success.

Thank you,
