Data compression BB10?
I haven't seen this addressed yet and I'm not 100% sure if this is the right section of the forums, but I will ask anyway.
With Blackberry 10/Z10 is there still data compression between device and carrier like there is in Pre-BB10 devices? I am still a little confused as to what has happened with BIS with the new platform (pretty sure no longer being used though BES is) and I'm certain that data compression is part of BIS. I don't mind having to bump up my data allowance when Verizon finally has the Z10, I just want to know what I am in for before I get blind-sighted.
That being said, looking through the forums and blog posts, there is plenty of good and plenty of not-so-good things going on with BB10/Z10 that even though I have until March to even have the opportunity to upgrade, I am still somewhat on the fence about doing so. I will stay with my 9930 if I have to, but I have been waiting too long not to and nothing else has the same appeal as the Z10.

In short, compression over BIS is pretty much a thing of the past. It isn't feasible to have a rich media experience over a closed metering network.
It will be supported for a while longer, as I've read in a couple of places, but BIS is going the way of New Coke and dodo birds.Bacon should be reclassified as meat candy.Devices: SPH-A620/VGA 1000, Sanyo Katana, BlackBerry 8330, 9630, 9670, MB855 Photon, SPH-L710 Galaxy SIII.TM13, Taking Mobile Nations to the next level!

This is insanely important for travelers like me but on a budget.
With BIS email compression, I can be in Asia for two weeks and pull less than 20mb through my gmail account on 24/7.
If BIS is on the way out (or more specifically data compression ), what about those of us who is still using OS 7/6/5(!) ?
Makes me want to think twice about going BB10 as I am sure my carrier would not let me to go back to my current bis plan if I change my mind.

Before BB10 = BlackBerry OS sucks! - After BB10 = Bring back BBOS.
Why can't we make our minds up?

I think this is the right thread to post to.
I am presently using a Bold 9700 with a 500 mb data plan. Obviously on BIS...
Is there some form of a factor that I can apply to my current usage and see what I should anticipate using when I make my upgrade to the z10?
Over the last six month my average data use is 100 mb (ranges from 89 mb to 123 mb)... Any assistance would be great!

Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....
