I decided to checkup on my Verizon Data plan last night for my new iPad. I knew it was going to be low since I barely have used the iPad on 4G so far. However, when I checked it out, I get what you see below.

I decided to do a little test on this since I knew it could not be right. I watched a few HD Videos from Youtube over 4G LTE and downloaded a whole bunch of High resolution pictures. No Change. Can some others with Verizon 4G checkout their usage and tell me if it seems right?

The really odd part is plan says you are on 1GB plan (which Verizon does not offer) but status indicates you are on 5GB plan.. I'd call Verizon as something is jacked up...

Ahh my bad.. Didn't know they offered a 1GB plan.. In your screen shot under status it says 1GB used and 4GB left..

Edit: I read GB instead of MB.

Need more coffee so disregard everything I posted... LOL

I'd be careful...I can't speak to how much data you've used, but I do know that the status doesn't update in real time. It has to "catch up" to the servers that your carrier uses. If you continue to use 4G, you could get stuck with a big bill. I'd check tomorrow to see what it says after you have used some more wireless data...then call Verizon to get an explanation if you really haven't used 4G all that much...
