I mean from my calculations this month so far I have used 5.75MB which is 5888KB according to google and since I get charged $0.01 per KB that comes out to 58 bucks. However in this case I actually did download a whole lot of stuff on my phone but would I be gettin charged about that same if I simply use google sync?
You could end up spending a couple hundred dollars a month doing downloads and having programs that automatically sync. As you said, you've already spent nearly $60, $30 more than if you had the unlimited BlackBerry data plan with at&t. Why not just go ahead and spend the consistent $30/month on the data plan instead of wondering how much your bill will be each month?
It just makes sense to me.
