    Video can use up your service very quickly.

    Use Wifi to download the videos you want to keep and save them on your media card. You can play them back without any penalty to your service allotment.

    Options / Advanced Options / Browser. Select HotSpot Browser and Save.

    You can view m.youtube.com and when you select a video, it will stream over Wifi.

    I concur with Reed McLay. When @ home, or anywhere providing it turn wifi on & use that.
    That is ofcourse free, & should be a lot faster, too.
    Or shell out for an unlimited data plan. Vids do tend to eat the usage :S

    The key setting is:

    Options / Advanced Options / Browser. Select Hotspot Browser and you will be using Wifi.

    If you have the Internet Browser selected, you will be using your plan data.

    To be sure, use Connection to turn your carrier radio off prior to the download.
