    I've noticed on my work phone (BlackBerry Classic) that my Wi-Fi usage has been quite high for the past few months. It doesnt make much sense to me, because the only thing I do on this phone is talk and email. So I started looking at the specific app usage, and it would appear that BBM is the culprit.

    Over 500MB in two weeks? I only have two contacts and I haven't actually talked to them in months. What could possibly be using all that data? Thank crap it's not doing that over the cell network. My Priv's BBM has only used 4.18MB of data since February 24th. I know BBM has turned into a spam tool, but has it become so bad that it's downloading 500MB of spam in two weeks?

    I have the same question...why it consumes too much data...I don't even use it. Per month it eats out 200mb of data...

    Had the same issue. I don't use bbm so I disabled it in parental controls and ot seems to have solved the problem. So "Settings", "Privacy and Security " then look in "Parental Controls "
