Data-hungry Verizon Phone

WOW.  I just switched to a basic phone, a Samsung Intensity III,  with Verizon 4 days ago and MAN it must be data-hungry.  I went in today to look at my account, and it said that I had used 247 terabytes of my 75Mb plan.   Called Verizon and they said that it was a bug on their end.  I certainly hope so, because I don’t think that I can afford to be 246,999,999,925Mb over…  I did the calculations, and as far as I can tell, my phone has been going through over 49Gb of data every minute since I got it without the battery even dropping one bar.

Talk about great battery life – and data throughput.
