Can someone explain my data plan to me?
:oops: I have no idea what this all means. My husband has a smartphone but he's clueless about it. We have 1 GB of data usage available each month. I know that means one gigabyte, which the handy data usage calculator tells me is roughly 10 hours of streaming videos or 65 hours surfing the web or posting about 3,000 photos to social media. He does none of those things on the phone. We haven't loaded any apps. He doesn't stream music, basically he hasn't done anything to justify having a smartphone, LOL! :p
But as I was dealing with Verizon today about them shutting off the phone despite having money on the account (again!) I noticed on the usage details that he's logging 1436 minutes of data usage every day. Verizon said that means he's got something connected to the internet all the time, maybe running in the background, so we need to figure out what that is. But now I'm wondering, how does 1436 minutes of usage time equate to gigabytes on our data plan? Can anyone explain this in plain English?
