Verizon Data

I read the terms on data and it says you can't use it to stream video or music. Does this work on the Droid? How much is a decent unlimited data contract, and is there really a 5GB cap on the unlimited data on Verizon?

There is wording there that allows verizon to crack down on people tethering their device without paying for tethering.

You can stream youtube, pandora, etc to your hearts content and be fine.

Email and Web for the droid is 29.99. The only reason you would need to pay higher is if you need a corporate activesync account.

Usually streaming movies comes from sites like Youtube. That's part of web browsing which is allowed.

As long as what you are doing is under Verizon's coverage, and not illegal, then you are not breaching contract. It's not that difficult to understand.

I am saying that doesn't matter.

Slacker Radio was recently pushed to all VZW blackberries, it is under the "verizon" tab in the android market.

Those T&C are old, and the only time Verizon's gonna crack down on your usage is if you are illegally tethering your device,
