    Question 8300 auto connecting to internet every 5 mins

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I hope somebody can help. I have a Curve which is costing me a fortune in data charges as it's connecting to the internet every 5 minutes 24 hours a day. Now I have to confess I don't really understand how a Blackberry receives it's email in terms of it being pushed (does this mean the handset doesn't dial in to get my mail?), but my carrier is charging me for this internet connection outside of my monthly Blackberry plan.

    Any advice most welcome.

    Tom

    If you are using the email then you are probably recieving an update from the server every five minutes. The push service literally pushes the email from a BB server into your device. It doesn't "dial up" but it does connect to the internet to recieve this information.\

    Yep, the bb is going to check for email every 5 minutes (or however it's set up) so you will reconnect every 5. I suggest getting an unlimited data plan. :/

    Even though I recommend the unlimited plan as well, the device checking for mail uses very little data. I know many people that don't have unlimited plans that never go over 6-8 MB a month as long as they're not tethering.

    Get the unlimited data plan if you can swing it, well worth the cost and features.

    you'll need a bigger data plan.
    for me, i usually don't exceed 15mb, and i use data constantly.

    The bigger plan is nice I have to say, considering I used 80+ MB last month...

    There's no telling how much I use. I'm on it 24x7.
