    Does anyone know how much data a BBMv conversation uses? On average how much would a 5m conversation use?

    This should be easy to check for yourself with the App Manager tools now available in OS10.2.1

    You really didn't answer the OP's question.

    I just had a 10 minute BBM video call over the weekend with my gf. We are both on LTE.

    I believe the usage was around 100MB of data each person or maybe even around 90MB. This was based off of the data use on telusmobility.com.

    So about 10MB/min?

    i don't think it will cost 10MB/min though, my guess is between 2-3MB/min, that sounds more realistic.

    What am I doing to make my posts look this bad?

    Actually 10 MB/minute may not be out of the question as we have HD video being broadcast along with HD audio (or better). I would guesstimate closer to 5-6 MB/minute myself.

    It will also depend on how much you move around and the picture changes, and how much is being said. You will also notice when you check a photo of yourself with a very busy/colourful background, the photo will be of a much bigger file size compared to a photo with just a plain white or black background. Difference can be huge (like 800MB vs 2.1GB). I assume video will exaggerate that even more.

    Video compression is very good nowadays, and can send only the differences between frames, and not the full frames to save bandwidth. Just an approximate explanation.

    Just download a data usage tracker app.
    It will count for you. I bought two apps to do this and so far I'm fully satisfied with it..

    Check out Data Usage Counter for BlackBerry 10 in BlackBerry World! You can find it at http://appworld.blackberry.com/webst...ntent/28015159

    And it's headless.
