    Question A map question!!!

    Advertisement



    Hi eveyone, i am new to this forum, but as i looked over, this is the nicest forum for BB. So i like to thank to people for their success
    My question is, i am located in Florida an sometimes i use the maps with my bluetooth gps reciever. So what i don't know is do i still get charged from cingular for usung the maps, or are they completly stored in the phones memory!!! I ask this question and i coudn't get a clear answer from cingular rep. Thanks.

    Welcome to the Stacaks Bimmer. The map programs are not stored in the BB's memory, they actually use data each time they load. If you're on an unlimited data plan, not a problem.

    I'd suggest upgrading to a data plan before the end of the month - or you might end up with a several hundred dollar cell bill. I tried to browse a website when I had cingular sans data and I ended up with a 50 dollar data bill and the site never did finish loading...

    Re: A map question!!!

    Severel hundred!!!! I got heart problems pls don't tell me But do you think if i upgrade to data plan after using the maps couple of days will cover everything in one plan or they might charge me the data plan+ what ever i used before the plan in the same month. Also i didn't use it more than total of 4 hours, but again i don't know what size of data i was downloading while i was viewing this maps, thanks for the explanation and advise guys.

    If you've been with your carrier for a while, just tell them that you're a good customer and request that they date your new data plan back to the beginning of the billing cycle. They should do that for you.
