    Default three things on my bill. What do they mean precisely?

    I see these line items on my bill.

    1) /WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE
    2) BBRY PERSONAL
    3) WAP

    What exactly do these do for me? I know number 2 has something to do with Blackberry things. But please elaborate on all these.
    Also, does the default APN the best one I should be using?
    wap.cingular
    wap@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    CINGULAR1

    I found a 4th Item too
    BBRYUNLCHILD

    Thanks.

    * /WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE = Media Pay Per Use, which shouldn't be there if you have a Blackberry plan.

    * BBRY PERSONAL = BlackBerry Personal data package, your internet and email.

    * BBRUNLCHILD = the "child" feature code, for the BB plan.

    * WAP is wireless access point, but not sure why it's on the bill.

    Can you take a screenshot? Blackout the personal stuff?


    Did you recently get the BB plan? If so, that is a prorated charge for Pay per use internet.

    I am not sure what screen shot you want me to take. I have the three things listed. I originally had a Moto T720 and like 3 months ago I got this BB. Kept the same phone plan Northeast Super Home 300 just got the BBPersonal.

    Yes, call and verify.

    I would also check online @ wireless.att.com to verify that it isn't in features.

    I checked my invoices and nothing stated "/WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE"

    This is how its listed for some reason I can't do a screen capture.
    I dont have a features section. Also, is WAP the only TCP connection that I can get. I was reading in one of the other forums that WAP is not the ideal connection. It's called something else but I don't know was that is. I want to know what that is before I call them.

    As others have said, call ATT and clear up this mess!!

    To me, after reading your posts, it sounds like you never changed your plan around at all once you added your Berry! If that is the case, you will not have the full potential of your Berry available and may rack up strange charges (without a BB data plan).

    Call ATT and talk to a CSR and get your bill and plan sorted out!

    I had a feeling I was not really going to get anywhere by calling them. And thats how I feel for the moment.
    The CSR told me that /WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE must stay there because if I didn't have the BBPersonal plan I would get charge per use for internet. And he really didn't explain to me what WAP is. And of course I didn't know what to ask for because I read somewhere WAP is not the best way to go I just could say that to him though. And no explanation as to what BBRUNLCHILD is. WHat is Child code? He just told me its with the BBPersonal plan.

    Does Wap gateway still go through a Nat firewall?

    This is an old, old regional rate plan. That's why we didn't recognize it! :P

    Says included 300 minutes, with 5,000 Night & Weekends. Doesn't mention roll over or mobile to mobile, either. Price is $29.99 main line and $29.99 additional lines (that's how I interpret it, with out seeing actual bill).

    * Texting at PPU level.
    * Voicemail, with a message waiting indicator (MWI / the envelope saying you have a message.)
    * Internet at PPU level, this is over written with the Blackberry plan, but the feature is still code is still on there.
    * AT&T DirectBill means things can be charged to your lines, via subscriptions and one time charges (i.e.; ringtones, games, etc.)
    * Call forwarding is explanatory, you don't answer it goes to voicemail.

    * Again, your N&W weekend minutes.
    * You have international roaming capability turned on. No charge unless used.
    * You can make calls to the continental US, Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands with out charge, but use of minutes.
    * Your Blackberry data plan, unlimited data + email usage.
    * This expands the available places you can roam.
    * This is the PPU for MMS messages.
    * This goes along with your region-only plans, outside that you should get charged for roaming.
    * This enables to dial outside the country.
    * WAP is again, wireless access point, and ties along with internet connections.

    It's just a really old plan and works the same. I don't see anything actually adding anything to your bill, but the BB plan.

    Yes definately give them a call!!!
    I added another line to my plan and they screwed it all up. Good thing I called a couple of days later because txts were not going to the new line.
    Good luck with that!!

    Yea I stuck with this calling plan because nobody has a 29.99 plan anymore, nobody. I just have to be careful of my day mins. If I roam I roam maybe I can use another Sim card just to make calls 10/min instead of 45/min?
    So I can still roam the country on the internet part and not get charged extra right?
    My whole point to starting this thread was I was just wondering about WAP. If I have BBPersonal do I have to go through WAP? why not have the ISP setting instead? My understanding is with WAP is a Nat firewall. The other way I would get a direct dhcp public address to the internet. I am just curious

    Nah, AT&T's data network is faster then Sprints and AT&T offers a Nation 200 plan, but "generally" for senior citizens.

    Sprint's has some of the most competitive data plans available, period. I have the Everything Data with 450 minutes, and its 69.99 a month. Gives unlimited text/gps/email/internet browsing/sprint tv and radio.

    Question Bbryunlchild

    Ditto on the "BBRYUNLCHILD"... I have no children, and hope I have no restirictions on the phone! Does this just have to be on the bill if you have a BB data plan?
