    I have had my torch for about a year now
    Each month I use a maximum of 300mb out of my 500mb that I get/month.

    I was just wondering if I could use my hotspot on the bus or to do my work on the go (when I don't have wifi)
    Will I have enough and approximately, what can I do? (obviously not watch videos/download games but how many webpages, emails etc)

    My usage varies each month, for example last month I only used 80mb but the month before I used 350..

    The question is so vague as to be unanswerable. What are you doing? What types of files are you working on? You certainly can use a BBOS7 device to hotspot, and connect via wifi, to get your work done....

    Hey, man. it is really difficult to give you answers as much as the community would like to help. Each web page is different in terms of data and it also depends on whether you plan to bridge it to a PB.

    But at least you are not really wasting that much data per month. My 9800, silly me, has unlimited 3G data plan on contract but I am pulling only a little over 150MB per month!!

    Well, partially because I also got a 9900 (from employer) with unlimited data and FASTER 3G connectivity. I tend to use my PB linked to 9900 and hence under-utilizing data on 9800.

    Basically, I'm going to be downloading some school files (generally, small word/ppt files) and using google to do research and/or browse random stuff .

    Hot spot wastes little data, unless you stream videos and download files. Just loading pages is nothing, you could browse the Web for an hour and waste 10mb that's if it's mostly text. Good rule of thumb is to not download anything and keep track of what you download and you should be fine.
