Depending on how you are using your data, is how much data you will use, ID_Spud. For instance, if you are using your device as a mobile hotspot and you have two other devices hooked up to it, and those devices are only using email your data usage would be minimal. On the other hand if you take two devices and are watching movies in HD on them your data could b eaten up within minutes. Here is a data calculator to help you with your estimates.
