att.com data detail
looking at my account on att.com I am looking at the data detail for my son's Torch and I see 2 types of usage. One reads blackberry.net and the other reads wap.cingular. what is the difference?
also there is one rather large download at t time I know he wasnt using it. if I called att could they look at their records and see what it was?
Thanks in advance.

I see alot of these during times that it should be using my wifi ( I'm here and know it is working ) and also during the night while sleeping. So much so that I now turn my phone off during the night although I'd prefer to keep it on. The majority of my data usage are these charges and I can't for the life of me figure out what is connecting like that as I have barely any apps and all should be using wifi ( and I know the wifi wasn't out during many of these times).

Didn't realize that bringing a thread back from less than 2 mos ago would be considered necroposting. Hopefully this is a smaller sin than NOT using the search feature.
I have yet to see any resolution regarding what type of data is being transmitted in these periodic "updates" that are sent to wap.cingular and blackberry.net. I would be ever so grateful if you could enlighten me.

I have no issue with data bars - my question was about the pings out every 10 min. Seems it might have been location data, I turned off my GPS yesterday, and wouldn't ya know.... the pings seem to have stopped around the time I turned it off. Highly coincidental, I agree. It was exceptionally circumspect for this to magically appear on my statement AFTER the iPad/iPhone location debacle reared its ugly head. Now AT&T has plausible deniability ... "of course we told you! It's on your bill!!"

BlackBerry data sessions are persistent connections to Research In Motion, waiting for new messages. They release periodically if the phone is idle, and restart. You may see 7kB sessions at regular intervals in your data details because of this. It has nothing to do with AT&T, and a day's browsing of these very forums... wait, never mind, most of everything posted in the forums is ignorance and FUD.
Also all cellular carriers keep location and timestamp records of all SMS, data, and voice sessions. On-phone logging settings are an issue you take up with the manufacturer if you can't be bothered to look through your phone's settings when you get it.
