It is hard to let it go, but if you are not using it, or know someone that can use it, it is not worth it to throw your money after it.

I got rid of my unlimited data about 2 years ago.  I was spending about $110 a month, maybe about $100 with an employer discount.  I had insurance added as well at the time.  I was using about 5GB a month as I had no WiFi at home.  Now I use about 500 MB or less a month and pay $50.80 a month.  So, just because you can, doesn't mean it's the best financial decision.

I ALSO got rid of my unlimited data almost 3 yrs ago and went on the Share Everything/More Everything plan. With unlimited data on 2 lines and basic phones on 2 lines without data plans, I was paying ~$220/month. I wanted to upgrade the 2 basic lines to smartphones and didn't see the need to add 2 x $30/2 GB data plans increasing my monthly bill to ~$280. I should mention that I NEVER went over 2 GB on either of the 2 unlimited data lines EVER. Not even close. I chose to upgrade the 2 basic phones to smartphones and go on the share everything plan with 4 GB of data and KEEP my monthly bill at ~$220 instead of increasing it to $280 and keeping the unlimited data.

NOW, I STILL have 4 smartphones on the account with 15 GB of shared data and am paying a monthly bill of $178 with 3 lines out of contract and the last line scheduled to be out of contract in April which will drop my monthly bill even further. I recently decided to go with the 15 GB data tier over the 10 GB data tier after having to increase it last month when my daughter went over our data allowance. The additional ~$15/month for 5 GB seemed like a good safety cushion and simply kept the data allowance at 15 GB. Prior to the increase, our normal monthly usage was ~8 GB total on the 4 lines.
