    GPRS data traffic

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    I just bought a second hand BB 8100, because I want to try if the BB works for me. I don't have a data plan yet, so I don't want to use any form of data traffic yet. And because the use of data traffic without a plan is really expensive in the Netherlands, I want to prevent the BB from searching for connections. Of course, I do want to use my phone for calling and SMS. Therefore, I decided to set the phone to 'no connection when roaming' (or something like that). I think this should work, but in the right top corner, it still says 'GPRS', and not GSM. Is my BB using data traffic? And if so, how do I set it to GSM? Hopefully you can help me, because I don't want to be surprised by a huge bill in the end of the month.

    Thank you all very much!

    Lower case gsm or gprs indicate no data connection. They must be upper case GSM or GPRS (or EDGE) to be a data connection.

    If you're running a recent OS (4.2?), under Options --> Security Settings --> Firewall you can block all incoming data traffice (SMS, MMS, PIN, BIS) just to be sure!
