10,000MB = 10GB.  You would use 1MB just by connecting to the net.

Yes, in the same way feet are far less than miles.

ditto what Gabe said.  9999 MB = 9.99 GB  Just 1 mb less that 10 GB!

And not that just connecting would actually use a full MB, but it uses something, so you don't have the full 10,000MB left, and it shows as being one less.   i.e. 0.1MB to 1MB usage would show 9999MB left, and 1.1MB to 2.0MB usage would show 9998MB left, and so on.  They break it down into MB to give you a better idea of what you have used and have left.
