I would love to have Internet access when I'm not at home and not in a WI-FI area. I know that Verizon and others charge $39.95 for up to 50mb of mobile use. But what I don't know is "what constitutes use". Does the mere viewing of the Internet go against my allowance of megabytes or must I actually download something? Thanks

Yes, "Use" is whenever you use. When you view a webpage, you are essentially downloading it.

Anytime you view a site, download anything, update anything, check for updates, etc, it is using up some space. The size of an average website is relatively small (I'm not quite sure, but possibly 1/2 a megabyte) but it adds up quickly, and is still using some of your allowance of megabytes.
