    data use with "push" email

    Advertisement



    I was ready to jump from my Palm Treo to a BB 8130, when I thought of a potential problem:

    My current VZW data plan (about $20/mo) gives me 10MB/mo of data. Of this, I use less than 200K because (a) I only check email on my Treo about 2x per week (b) I have it set to download only subject lines (c) I only read messages that look important (d) I almost never use mobile web.

    I know that BIS will cost me an extra $25/mo, but what can I expect with my data plan? Will usage go up slightly, or so much that I might exceed my 10MB limit?

    Its dependant on how much email you recieve. Its not much at all. And you should really be covered within those 10MB.

    Check out this great app if you want to be on the safe side tho

    Well, I checked again. If I switch from my Palm's $25 data plan to the BIS $30 plan, I get unlimited data for the extra 5 bucks. That sounds good to me!
