    Maps Data Usage

    Advertisement



    I got a Pearl for Christmas and instantly fell in love with it. As I started playing with all of the applications, I ran across the Maps app and began to enter some addresses, generate some directions, and zoom in to a variety of locations for about 10-15 minutes. However, it wasn't until after all of this that it dawned on me that this was incurring data charges -- and I don't have a data plan.

    I think my bill should be coming in the next couple of weeks, but can anyone tell me approximately how much KB's (or MB's…) I consumed? Given how expensive Rogers is… I am rather scared for my bill...

    Rogers must have you on some type of data plan because you can't use Blackberry Maps without a data plan. I am not familiar with Rogers, but can you go on line to check your data usage by signing in to your Rogers account (you can do this on TMO)?

    Unfortunately, I cannot check my data usage online or by calling Rogers. And I am not on a data plan, but can be billed for data. There are a few data plans available, all a rip off: $100 for 200MB, $60 for 25MB, $40 for 1MB, and $25 for 0.5MB. If you're not on a data plan, I believe it is 10-15 cents per 100kb / 150kb.
