    Default Does the native browser(OS7) supports data compression or it is a myth?

    Guys, I have been reading a lot for this in the net,but yesterday some guy from support told me,that only Opera supports compression?WTF?So if I would reduce my traffic I must use it?

    Yes it does, along with all native apps on BlackBerry.

    Radio apps like Nobex, however, do not use compression.

    the compression is mostly overrated.

    if you use email, bbm mainly it will help a lot.

    Even browsing with webkit browser is not that huge with compression. A full webpage is still easily one mega byte big.

    Youtube or other video portals or mp3 streams are not further compressed/wouldn't help.



    I do not use youtube that often but still it impacts my monthly data usage huge.

    I believe the main plus from the compression on BBs is that on poor connection you still can have a pleasent email/bbm experience.

    And this is a bit expensive where I live (Germany) as I have less options and have to pay extra fees to use BBs.

    :/
