    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ so is BB messenger measured by your service provider for data usage, I guess it makes sense.

    tl_1981, Welcome to PinStack.

    It really can't be too much as it's just simple AscII text. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your BB.

    1 character is 1 byte.

    1000 characters is 1 KB (or 1024, depending on which system you're counting with).

    1,000,000 characters is 1 MB.

    That is how you can discover how much data you use.

    This sentence is 26 bytes.

    Re: Data when using BB messenger

    is it compressed? or anyother "things" going on to make it bigger or smaller per message?

    It is not compressed, but there are some overhead that has to be answered. Packet info and other message headers that will add a small number of bytes to the data flow.
