How to check data usage
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.

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.<a href="http://www.galatis.de/starboard.php?d=5518"><!-- Something special for the spammers --></a>

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

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

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.There are 10 types of people in the world: those that understand Binary, those that don't, and those that don't expect this signature to be in base 3.

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?BlackBerry Unlockers
