Pandora does use data and it counts against your allocation as stated. But 30-60 MB is small compared to video streaming. And my experience has been closer to the 30 MB end. But if you assume 50 MB of data per hour for Pandora, you still need to stream Pandora for 20 hours to make up a GB. If your plan is low for minimal phone usage, then yes, you will want to watch your use of Pandora or use wifi. My sole available internet source is Verizon LTE -- so my wife is Verizon data. I use Pandora without concern despite my 20GB limit. Pandora is NOT the issue. But web browsing -- even with mobile websites - can cause an immense amount of data use. High resolution data streaming is impossible with a 20GB limit unless you can accept huge (hundreds) in overage charges.
Hey again, Weth. Yes -- we are in complete agreement. I have a 20 GB plan and typically use Pandora from 1 - 4 hours a day several days a week. That's a small enough part of my total to be irrelevant.
We actually have only a 0.5 GB phone plan shared with 2 phones. So we ALWAYS use wifi if available (including at home with wifi through LTE). I never use Pandora when traveling away from home unless I have a wifi connection because it would chew right through .5 GB if I were using 4G direct.
