    How much data usage per month?

    Advertisement



    I've only had my blackberry for a week and was shocked to see how much data I had used up already. (over 50) Well, a lot of that was because it is all new to me and I was downloading things and exploring, I am sure it will settle down soon.

    So how much do you use on average a month?

    Also, could someone explain what qualifies as data? WHen I listen to music I have downloaded into my bb - is that data? or not because it is already stored?

    Is playing a game I downloaded - data?

    Is the bb just on looking for mail every few minutes data?

    Any tips on not using so much?

    Data - data transferred.

    Listening to music from your BB memory isn't.
    Listening to streaming music from the Internet is.

    Playing game on BB generally isn't, unless to talk back to some game server.

    Emails, web surfing, etc are all data.

    Basically, if you can do it with radio off, then it isn't data. =)

    If you have a unlimited data package it really doesn't matter how much data you use. Enjoy it before someone decides to put a cap on it.

    any email, instant message, anything done through blackberry messenger, if you web browse, if you download a ringtone, over the air app, if you upload a picture or song or a file to a website just a few examples of data.

    Thanks

    I had a choice of 30MB or 1Gig - there is no plan in between, so I went with 1gig which is 1024mb a month, I think that should be plenty lol
