    Default How does data usage appear on my verizon bill?

    I just got my first blackberry and I was wondering how my website, facebook, email, bbm, ect will appear on my bill???

    Does it just list total usage or does it break it down ...? Does it list specific websites visited, dates, times, ect? What about BBM conversations?

    I have heard that other providers just list total data usage and do not list every action taken... any advice?

    I'm pretty sure it will only show an overview of the usage and the charges but it doesn't break down what you actually used just like your home internet bill.

    it is one line of text on the bill that shows how much in KB you used in data.

    it is not broken down to websites, or conversations or anything.

    It's broken down by time of usage ONLY, it won't say where you were or what app you were using. It will just say on X day you used X data from X till X. It will also list your total data usage. It WILL say any songs or paid apps (VZW apps) you downloaded too, Vcast etc.

    It's possible VZW could provide you a more detailed analysis upon request. You would have to check with them.

    Sounds more like mommy/daddy agreed to pay for the additional data plan required on the condition it's used for legit reasons and not to simply surf the web when he/she is in class etc.

    If they see the Facebook usage and other stuff, they might get upset. Stop me when I'm wrong.

    It's not really our business why. Besides, don't we all try to hide our porn habits, whether from the other or mom and dad? Ha.

    Be nice, pervs.

    Your bill will not list where you have gone on the web only how many Kb's you have used.
    8830 -> 8130 -> 8330 -> 8130 -> 9530

    It really depends on total usage, not per message. And I assume a few KB at most.
