    How does AvantGo work!?

    Advertisement



    Hey all,

    Second post

    Been lurking for a while now, having got my blackberry on Sunday. Loving it!

    My question is; how exactly does an AvantGo sync work? Is the data deemed by your network provider to be "internet data", and thus come under my £0.85 /mb charge?

    I ask because, like others, I seem to have been stung by Carphonewarehouse / O2's "unlimited" data plan, which actually only covers e-mail. Despite saying it covers internet! If I'm right in what I'm saying above, then I'll just sign up to a news website that e-mails the headlines; that way it'll be free.

    Used to have AvantGo for my Palm, and loved it, but I don't want to be downloading 10's of mb's every month if it's costing lots.

    Thanks all! Hopefully I don't sound cheap, but right now my bb plan (ex. insurance, and my other phone contract that hasn't run out yet) is costing me $90, and I'm buggered if I'm giving them anymore!

    I am not sure, but I would guess if its not an email in your email box it is using internet data not email data.

    Thanks Melissa, I thought as much but hoped I was wrong.

    Re: How does AvantGo work!?

    Ive used AvantGo for a couple years now and have just switched to a bb pearl. With my other phones AvantGo was downloadable with a sync to my computer. I've had sync cables that also act as chargers so anytime I sync/charge my phone it would automatically update my AvantGo pages. Recently with their newest sync software I believe they have gone to OTA sync. However, I am still using an earlier version of their sync software and it is still functioning only when I sync to my computer. The only drawback to that is that some information doesn't get updated but once a day where with my bb I can update anytime. IF you use t-mobile and have their bb package updating is not an issue because it is included in the cost.
