In 2010 average smartphone owners used 146 MB per month, up from 97 MB per month in 2009. [Consumer Reports Electronics]

    No kidding… b/c if you want a new phone, you have a choice between a crappy flip phone, or a decent phone where you *must* pay for a data plan. You don’t have a choice. And if you’re already paying for it you might as well use it.

    My monthly cell bill (with data for my BlackBerry) is actually lower now than it was when I had a dumbphone, and I’m getting many more features. Retentions department FTW.
