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.

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
