I have been assured numerous times by different Verizon tech people that there is no 5 gig cap on the $30 unlimited data plan.
There is no cap!
There may be a cap on the some other plan, like the tethering plan (an EXTRA $30 a month, i believe), but it has nothing to do with the unlimited data plan that you MUST have in order to have the Droid (or any Blackberry.)
Unless Verizon has redefined "unlimited" to mean something other than Webster intended, you are safe.
Now, if they would only include texting in that plan......
DROID offers a UNLMIITED Web & Email plan for $29.99, which is different than the Moblie Broadband pricing that has a 5GB cap, which if you go over you are charged $0.05 per MB...
I'd imagine 5 GB would be pretty hard at this point to reach, I listen to Pandora for 8+ hours a day at work on my Droid, and so far I've barely gone over 100k per day.
Although once Flash is enabled, I'm sure it will be much easier and quicker to hit that cap.
With all this facebooking, utubing and web surfing, isn't it easy to go over the Cap?
There's almost no chance of hitting that 5GB cap by surfing on your phone. Tethering maybe, but if you get the tethering plan available sometime next year, the cap is supposedly 10GB. You'd have to be streaming youtube videos 8 hours a day, 7 days a week for a whole month to break that.
There is no cap if you bought a Droid and the data plan.
