Wednesday December 18, 2013-Inks Lake state park

As you may have noticed, I have not made any entries in some time. Please let me explain what happened. I have been experiencing a huge amount of data usage by my Verizon MiFi card for the past couple of months and when I called to complain about the unusual amount, I was told that any long entries, photos, videos and even leaving Facebook open could add the large amounts that I have been seeing. My normal use is 10-12 gigabytes per month, but last month it went over 25 gigs and the straw that broke the camel's back was a message today that I had used over 40 gigs! That would be over 1 1/3 gigs per day!

I called Verizon Customer Service and spoke with two very nice people who agreed to exchange the sim card on the MiFi which should take care of the problem. I must call them when the bill comes out in a few days and they will credit my account for the overage. We'll see how this works out...

So long.

Thanks for the heads up. I will have to pay attention to ours. We usually do about 10 a month on the road and that is with an IPad and a computer. Did they suggest turning off the comouter or the MiFi?

I am glad that you only have a bandwidth problem and not a health problem.
We too use a Verizon air card and we have trouble keeping ours under the limit that we have chosen.

Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.
