    With my 9810 Torch, I generally used around 50Mb a month. Now I have a Q10, I am finding it next to impossible to stay under my 100Mb monthly limit unless I switch off network data.

    I have deleted all my games and a couple of other apps that I thought might have been using data in the background, and I close down any active frames that might use any.

    Is it just an OS 10 thing?

    BB10 doesn't use data compression that the BBOS 7.1 and below did.

    No sh*t? I didn't know BB had given up on data compression; I'll have to reconsider my tariff in that case, 100Mb seemed bulletproof.

    100MB is miniscule i'd use that up before lunch in the UK.
    On average I use 3gb a month and have a 20gb allowance.

    Yeah data compression slows things down & people these days are too impatient to wait the extra half second it takes to save bandwidth / money

    More and more connections are using TLS. You can't compress encrypted files unless you do the process on each end. So to provide compression the data would have to be decrypted by BlackBerry de-compressed then re-encrypted to go to FB, Google or whoever. That kind of operation is also not very popular now days.

    I have the same experience and think there is a huge bug somewhere... and it is also related to the battery consumption... when I'm travelling around Europe and roaming my battery last much longer....

    It's not a bug. Prior to BlackBerry 10 blackberries used BIS (BlackBerry Internet service) hosted by BlackBerry. This is the only reason you were able to get away with such little data on your plan.

    When I made the switch to bb10 is was made aware of this change and advised to change my plan accordingly. The rep informed me that iPhone and Android consumed much more data than the bbos 7. If you recall perhaps when iPhone first came out this was a big topic about data overages.

    This is inevitably what caused the carriers to offer larger GB data packages.

    Probably best to get informed when making such a change so you know what potential pitfalls may be involved.
