    3G Data usage so far

    As of the 21st of this month I have used 452megs out of my 1gig data plan. Not too bad a pace. I pretty much just use Evernote, web browse and email on 3G, no video streaming. I will update and buy apps over 3G. I don't allow background downloads to happen over 3G though like Pulse and other apps. I tend to turn airplane mode on when I am not using the Xoom unless I'm in a wifi spot.

    Overall, for the convienience of always being online, $20 a month is well worth it.

    i agree. so handy to have when you really need it but you have to be really careful not to overuse it. i uncheck the two boxes in the mobile network settings box so that i can just leave wifi turned on all the time and not have to worry about it when moving from place to place.

    Is there somewhere on the xoom where it stores this information? If not, what are you using to see how much data you are using

    There is a verizon app that lets you log in to view your usage and it also has a widget you can have on your screen that shows you up to date data usage. It borks out if I use it over wifi, it looks at my cell phone unlimited plan, so I got used to only hitting the button over 3G.

    Ah ok. I bought mine outside of Verizon so I don't have any plan set up with them.
