    Not a cap but you will get throttled at 3GB of usage on 3G/HSPA+ and 5GB of usage on LTE. Streaming videos you will blow through that amount of usage very quickly and then be looking at near dial up speeds for the rest of your billing cycle.

    IMO a better idea would be to see if you can get an LTE MiFi hotspot card from Verizon and use that connection to stream through one of your phones.
    That was what I was thinking, they'd use up all their data allowance with just a few movies or TV shows.

    How much would that hotspot card from Verizon cost? Wasn't the OP trying to avoid buying satellite TV, so paying for mobile data from Verizon would defeat the purpose?

    well like I said. I am moving to a new house this fall and dsl will not be available until a year after we move in. All that I'll have is

    Will that cord work with the Samsung focus?

    I'm not complaining. I just wish Microsoft would be more proactive in creating an ecosystem around their phone. Cause in the end, there's a lot of cooler stuff for the iPhone.
    All you can do is try it, its only $15 so it won't be much a lost if it didn't work and you can always send it back.

    Also if he lives around tons of trees he can forget about satellite, OTA TV or even a 3G signal strong enough for any hardcore streaming.

    Please try the $15 cable...I"'m curious if it works.

    BTW...I watch netflix on my phone and I don't much over 2gb/month. I don't think the netflix movies on your phone are as big as you think...definitely not as big as online. I originally thought so...but I'm pretty sure I can watch 4 movies a month and still not go over 2gb

    Depends on what quality of what you stream. If you stream in HD, then yeah you'll go over 2GB pretty easily. But if you stream in the lowest quality possible, then you should be able to stay under 2GB.

    But 4 movies a month is a whole different story than using it as a replacement for Cable.

    Back on topic, there is no HDMI adapter, but I'm hoping for it in Apollo. And the reason the iPhone has so many accessories is because of their marketshare and that every generation of the iPhone is the same. With Android and WP they have to accomodate a wider range of devices, so it isn't as cost effective.

    Of course WP is playing catchup, there is no way they would get the range of accessories with 2% marketshare. When the marketshare increases, the accessories will come.
