My wife and I are looking to get our first Droids and I have some questions about the data plan. Does the 150MB allowance refer only to downloading/uploading or will we be charged for, say, listening to the radio online? Does playing Farmville count

My wife and I are looking to get our first Droids and I have some questions about the data plan.
Does the 150MB allowance refer only to downloading/uploading or will we be charged for, say, listening to the radio online? Does playing Farmville count towards the allowance? What about GPS? I looked around the Verizon site but can't find any clear explanation of the data plans.
Thanks!

Any time you transmit or recieve data on Verizon's network, you will be assessed usage against your 150MB allowance on that plan.  That means that any time you send information to, or download information from the internet, you will be using your allowance.  This includes activities like playing games online (Farmville) and listening to the radio online.  Both of those activities are fairly data intensive, and if you plan to do them more than 1-2 times a month for a short amount of time, you should consider the unlimited data plan.
GPS does not use data in and of itself, but most programs that utilize GPS, like navigation programs, or apps that help you identify businesses/restaurants/attractions nearby will use data when they download that information.
If you are online and you are NOT connected to a Wifi network, you are using data.
