    "Housekeeping Data Usage"

    Advertisement



    Hi Folks,

    I have a 6mb monthly limit and receive approximately 20 - 30 e-mails into my Blackberry each day from my work's BES.

    I understand that the blackberry sends control and refresh messages back and forth fairly constantly throughout the day.

    Does anyone know how big (i.e byte / kilobyte) these control messages are?

    Coupled with the emails, are these likely to push me over the limit?

    Any help would be much appreciated.


    Dan.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~your normal email is less then 2kb unless your getting a lot of html sent to you as well. Just plain text usually comes through less than 1kb at least in my experience. I hope that helps you out a little bit

    I wanna say if you use it only for email then that should last you maybe 5K emails or 8K and that's estimating but if you web browse then I suggest only going to wap sites. You might be able to pass on other sites without images.

    Email-wise, as stated above, you'll be fine. But I wouldn't risk browsing on a 6mb restriction. My daily usage is around 4mb with around 45min of usage.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
