    How many e mails

    Advertisement



    Good day folks

    I'm looking into a BB and was wonder how many e mails (no attachments) could I handle on a 4 meg a month plan.

    Also, approx how much surfing on a BB could a person do in that 4 meg plan?


    I have heard many hundreds of e mails a month but would like to get that confirmed

    Thanks for your help


    PS: Is there a way of blocking attachments on a 8703e just to make sure I don't get any

    It really depends. I don't know if there is a definitive answer on that. I think you can set up to receive only message headers, but I am not certain about that.

    Re: How many e mails

    Thanks

    Actally I probably would only use 10 to 15 a day max, more pin than e mails

    I did talk to Bell and they said hundreds, then another said 20 or so a day. I have had so many different estimates lol


    I may get the 8 meg plan for the first month just to make sure. I'm not signing any contract to I can change at will.

    Don't forget that surfing the Internet eats data as well as email. And if you use a map application such as BBMaps and GoogleMaps, that eats a lot of data.

    Re: How many e mails

    I want a data plan for my bb, but what would be the cheapest Data Plan, or better yet the most affordable Data Plan?

    Re: How many e mails

    Well I was just on Rogers and I see they recomend 1 meg for people that will get 10 to 15 e mails per day, so I guess 30 to 40 e mails a day on the 4 meg Bell plan would be in the ball park.

    At max I would use 15 e mails per day so I should be well within the limits

    I would not use any map applications at most online banking, 411 phone info and a few more
