    Hi, im just wondering how do I check my data usage because I have the lowest data plan, but I want to use bbm. And does incoming e-mails to my phone use data? By the way im on rogers if it makes a difference.

    Usually your carrier has some means to check it.

    LOL...
    Extreme = 100 GB
    Extreme Plus = only 90GB

    IAC it would be difficult (almost impossible) to reach gigabyte levels without extensive tethering. A typical BB used for moderate-heavy email, and some browsing and BBM should usually be below 100 Megabytes in a month - not gigabytes.

    Are you sure this is referring to Internet usage on a phone? That sounds more like Internet usage on a PC.

    For instance, the FCC is currently testing broadband ISPs here in the US. They consider >30 GB month to be heavy use. https://www.testmyisp.com/requirements.html

    I am a Roger customer too and I can assure you that BlackBerry Messenger and lots of Email bairly register in terms of data usage.

    Rogers provides a web link to monitor your data use. Log on to your Rogers account to find it.

    http://www.rogers.com/web/content/wp-data-guide

    Only 4% of Rogers smartphone customers currently use more than 500 MB of data/month. Customers that use more then 500 MB of data/month tend to be customers that heavily stream and download content with their device

    What is the ultimate BlackBerry? The ultimate BlackBerry would be a device with the screen size of the Z10 along with the physical keyboard of the Q10 and the battery life of the Z30. This, would be the ultimate BlackBerry. Why they haven't built it yet remains one of the greatest mystery of BlackBerry.

    As a Rogers user, you should have an icon called "My Account" somewhere on your berry.

    you should be able to use this app to view all your account information; including data usage.

    Does it matter if your carrier offers "Unlimited Web" is it just for personal reference or are you guys trying to see where you are compared to your monthly limit?
