Wow you guys use a lot!!!
I BBM/WhatsApp very heavily, send and receive many emails, check Facebook and Twitter probably twice a day (browse a little), look up random things, read some news and receive/send quite a few picture messages through BBM/WhatsApp and I don't hit my limit of 50 MB a month. Crazy.
The more data you use the more you pay for your plan. So you'll have to consider the utility you'll get of constantly checking your Facebook vs the cost of that 500 MB and up plan.

You didn't say (or I missed) who your carrier is.
I just jumped (forced to!!) AT&T for my wife and I. Both on 9900. I bought the unlimited phone and text with just the 1GB shared for a start. The phones are doing "something" once an hour day and night at 1K per hit.
Anyway, between the two of us in two weeks we haven't cleared 100mb. It may go up when she figures out mobile FB. I just check FB and use Twitter, GasBuddy, Poynt and BB Traffic (occasionally).
So, with their mobile share and two phones, I am at $40 base (1GB data)+ $45/phone. If it goes crazy the next jump is to 4GB. The base goes up to $70, but the per phone drops to $40 each. For two phones that would only be a $20/month jump.
how much data is enough?
im with rogers and i have to say their data plans are really expensive thats why i was going to get something small like 200 mb of data. right now i have the unlimited social networking and bbm plan which is the cheepest plan at $48 per month
note: i am on a 3 year contract

I have the 300 MB plan through my AT&T provider. I'm around WiFi quite a bit. If social media, email and the occasional navigation via BB Traffic (Or other service), the smaller amount of 200-300 should be fine.

I use a TON of data, but since I'm always on WiFi it's rarely even a full gb.
Sounds like 200-300mb would be enough for the OP.Need an app for your blog/business or want some BB10 coding help? PM me for rates
