Droid X Using More Data on Verizon

Droid X Using 5X More Data: Verizon Paid Data Plan Coming?

It was a big to-do when AT&T switched to a tiered smartphone data plan structure, and Verizon could be adopting the same strategy as early as July 29. There are no details or confirmations yet, but it's becoming clear that the new batch of do-it-all smartphones that we all know and love — like the iPhone, Droid X, and EVO 4G — can easily suck down the data if you aren't careful. In fact, a Verizon representative says that Droid X users are consuming five times the data of other cellphone users on its network.

Worried yet? You already know how to check the data consumption on an iPhone, but do you know how to check your usage on a Verizon phone? Find out an easy way after the jump.

Download and use the MyVerizon App, which recently got an update that includes a handy data counter for quick and easy monitoring. Might as well get used to it now — the Droid X could just push Verizon over the edge to start charging by the GB!
