Go over 5GB and you have to mortgage your house to pay the bill. Anyone who thinks Amazon should have provided free 3G is naive. Even pay for 3G is a waste IMO. As I stated, those video files will not be nearly as large as you think and the KF will hold plenty for you to pop over to the beach and watch a video or 5.
I only disagree with the 1st part. There are plenty of times where I've streamed Netflix or hulu + on my iPhone @ work.....during lunch and the quality was incredible.

Anyway I agree that I can completely understand why amazon would not have 3G on the Fire. Especially free. They can't afford to pay for all that bandwidth.
