    How am I getting Googlemaps???

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone,

    I just recently got a 8320 Blackberry curve and have a question. I do not have any type of data plan and am only using wifi. My question is when I turn off wifi, my googlemaps is still working. I am wondering how is it working if I don't have a data plan and wifi is off. I know wifi is off because my blackberry browser won't work. I spoke to 3 tmobile representatives that have told me I am not being charged but they don't seem to have a solid answer as to why googlemaps is working with wifi off. If anyone has an answer I would greatly appreciate it.

    Not really sure, but you could be being charge per use on the data even if the csr's told you that you aren't. You will know when your bill comes out. I would be really careful about using it if I were you.

    That is what a t-mobile representative thought but I am still able to look up new addresses and load new locations.

    the reps cannot see live charges on the account, they can only see them after the billing cycle ends. you could be charged pay-as-you-go which will add up very quickly.

    Ya your definitely going to be charged for that... its going to be expensive to so make sure that you completely turn off google maps when you not on a wifi hotspot. google maps uses alot of bandwidth so be carefull how much you use it out of the wifi hotspot.

    or you could just get a blackberry data plan and everything would be the way its supposed to be ;-)

    Blackberry... With no data plan = trouble and loss of money..

    You might have some credits on your current service for that, or, maybe someone else is being charged for your sufing?
