I was faced with a similar issue myself recently: when the iPhone came out in Canada, it brought with it affordable data for the first time: $30 for 6 GB of data transfer. I jumped all over that. A few months ago though, I wanted to get my wife off of using Telus (CDMA carrier) and on to using Rogers (a GSM carrier). A family plan was the best way to reduce our costs across the board, but Rogers had completely eliminated the $30/month data plan...the ONLY option they'd give me was a $100/month plan for the two of us (which ballooned to $125/month after adding voicemail and caller ID, features which were stupidly not considered "core"), and it has only 1 GB *shared* between us.

The geek in me chaffed hard at giving up my 6 GB/month plan, but the pragmatist in me looked at the data I'd been using, which at most was 700 MB/month (my wife only does email on her phone, her data usage is like 30 MB/month), and realized that this was the smart decision.
