    My Q10 is 3-4 days old. I have been traveling in Europe for about 24 hours. I added a 30MB European data plan to my AT&T account for $30. I just got a message that my data plan is all used up and they've charged me another $30! WTF?

    When I called in to add the international plan, the AT&T representative said I had used 600MBs of data this month compared with my typical monthly usage of about 100MBs per month.

    What is going on? This is crazy!

    BB10 doesn't have data compression as in the legacy OS devices utilizing BIS. Data consumption is now on par/similar to that of the other platforms...

    Overage on 30MB in a day is nothing out of the ordinary... 1GB is the minimum i'd say for BB10...2GB would be safe (but that depends on if you're an average user or power user!)

    I don't think i've passed the 150Mb on my 9900...

    That's crazy...make this a stupidly expensive device for int'l travel, let alone regular monthly usage? Some setting or something must be wrong. I am barely surfing the web. Just regular emails. Nothing to cause much data usage. Something's wrong with this device.

    I don't think anything is wrong and this approximately matches the behavior of iOS and android devices as well. html email with pictures embedded adds up, and if there is additional stuff like software update pings going on it will be worse yet.

    I was in dubai for a few days in january with an iphone and bought an etisalat sim with 1GB and managed to use most of that in about 3 days.

    I am keeping a bb7 device for the next overseas trip.

    I found that I used 1 gig a month on my 9900 on average and my Q10 uses 5 gigs in the same period of time. Before upgrading, I researched that data wasn't compressed for BlackBerry 10 so I increased to a 6 gig data plan for an extra $10 a month
