    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you need to see if its unlimited-if not then emails and data will vary. Its impossible to know the amount of data emails and ect. will use.email dosent use a lot of days unless you add pics or audio. The unlimited plans are the best for BB because bbs are based on data. Everything the BB does is based on data, including messenger. Hope this helps

    Yeah, RayZ brings up a good question. My old plan before my BB was like 5mb package and I went WAY over it. So if you are going to use an unlimited plan then pretty much EVERYTHING using data SHOULD be included. Facebook mobile, Myspace Mobile, IM clients, web browsing, email accounts (BIS/BES), BBM, MMS are all data reliant and if you have unlimited get ready to have some fun :-)

    Rogers doesn't have unlimited plans

    The current promotion they have is unlimited email and web browsing for the first 3 months with a new 3 year contract on $25 or higher plans. After that $25 is only 4mb

    Try this thread, it has a link to an app that will allow you to monitor your data usage http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ata_usage.html

    You are really going to run over if you do much browsing, IM or RSS feeds.

    are you sure about that? the link above only shows $60 = 25mb and $100 = 200mb, no unlimited plans listed.

    but yes you can easily go over that 4mb if you do a bit of web browsing and IM'ing. That application above will let you see how much data you are using so you can try to prevent going over your limit.

    Re: didn't know where to post this question!!

    i've checked that JiveTalk uses 80ish KB when idle for 24hours. (6 friends)
    Ofcourse that depends on your friends list, so if you have a friends list with 100+ friends expect it to be higher.

    With talking you can say aprox 1kb per message.. (then your on the safe side).

    Pages like facebook and such can eat your data plan, if you disable pictures however, you'll save a lot of bandwith. Really recomended..

    Gmail check is aprox 2-3kb, (without reading any messages)

    Thanks to cliffr39, who posted the minimonitor application

    Rogers has no unlimited plan for BlackBerries, wow-i did not know that. I'm with AT&T and just assumed that all carriers would have unlimited for smartphones, sorry about that!
