    I'm with bell mobility here in Toronto Ontario and was wondering how and what eats up megabytes in my rate plan? I know emails do but how is internet use calculated?

    The internet can eat up your usage pretty quick depending on the sites you go on. If you will use the internet on a regular bases your best bet will be to get the inlimited plan.

    The size of the webpage has a lot to do with it as well. Downloading ringtones is another way to eat them up

    Google Maps will churn through MB of data in minutes.

    And, for those who are so quick to spit out "just get the unlimited plan", realise that not all carriers have such a thing.

    In this case, Bell Mobility only offered an "unlimited" plan bundled with voice for a few months, and then stopped.

    There is no "unlimited" BlackBerry Data Plan in Canada with any carrier.

    I didn't realize some carriers don't have unlimited. I thought they all did. You've just taught me something.

    Re: megabyte usage

    Let me expand this question. When viewing a website and a specific page without getting links or switching pages, let's say your reading a page once loaded are you still wasting data or is it just the actually transfer ?
    I use a real estate mls website here Toronto to search for listing while on the road and once the listings load it takes me a few minutes to go thru them.

    Also, does anyone know of any real estate software for BB that manages clients, properties, & transactions ?

    cheers,

    the only time your going to get charged is when the blackberry is rendering the page. you wont get charged for data while your reading the page
