When you’re choosing a wireless plan, you’re often faced with a huge decision: unlimited or shared data?
Everything you do on your cell phone uses mobile data, including calling and texting. Mobile data usage is calculated using gigabytes (GB). Voice calls and texts use such a small amount of data that most carriers don’t count their usage against monthly data plans. But for sending pictures, posting status updates, checking email, or just accessing the internet, wireless carriers do keep track of data usage.
