    stream @ 128kbps = 16 KB/s x 60sec = 960KB/min (~1mb/min)

    so figure about 1mb per minute of streaming music. That in turn comes to about 5,000 minutes of streaming before you hit your 5gb limit.

    That comes out to about 3.5 days straight of streaming music. This assumes the stream rate is 128 though, a lower quality would affect that greatly.

    So once in a while Pandora would be ok, but it will definitiely eat up your usage.

    You should be fine no matter how much you use it. Verizon just pushed Slacker to all BB Storms, if they didn't want people to stream music a lot they wouldn't have pushed the app out to users.

    That's only if you're tethered. If you aren't tethered, then there is no limit in the plan.

    That's for the wireless cards and teathering. Device usage shouldn't be limited

    Yep, the data on your phone is unlimited.

    If your tethering your device to a computer, that's when it's capped. We don't advertise that as unlimited.

    Have heard a couple of horror stories about using tetherberry and users getting hit with big bills. Would search here for it before making that assumption....
