    Default data compression on bb10?

    Hi everyone. I'm getting ready to make the jump from by beloved 9900 to the new Z10 and want to know if the new os still compresses data like the old legacy OS' did. I know that a BIS/BES plan is not required anymore therefore I would guess that the new OS doesn't compress data like it used to. Can anyone confirm this?

    I believe there is still compression but not to the same extent

    Pretty sure compression was handled by RIMs NOC. So if you terminate your BIS plan for a regular data plan, then no, you wouldn't get that little luxury

    There is no more option for unlimited social. It is now just data, or no data.

    Don't ask me how it works, nor can I give any kind of proof at all, but that is just what I heard.

    I got another bis plan as the vodafone guy showed me its now free on my receipt. I've noticed I get half a dozen emails at a time instead of them one by one.

    Is here a way we can check that we have full bis and that our emails are pushed?

    Well that's the thing, all BB10s use activesync but what I'm trying to figure out is if you maintain your bis plan do we still get data compression. I'm not sure how to check besides looking at your bill and seeing if your data spikes compared to passed bills.
