    I HAVE A QUESTION:

    How many megabytes are consumed by bbm? A family member took his bb overseas and the phone company told me the charges are $1.50 per megabyte consumed.

    So my question is, how many megabytes would it consume with one message send/recevied/ daily?
    does it consume mb if you are not receiving or sending messages

    It depends is the safe answer.

    1st - BBM only works IF you have a (BIS) BB data plan active.
    2nd - BIS traffic is what you need to be concerned with, since it is in constant contact with RIM. Any emails, etc.. will be transferred.
    3rd - BBM traffic is basically what you see is what you get, so with just text you have a loong way to go before using a MB.

    FWIW, one of our BB's does not get used much and only used 4-5 MB in a month's time. Not roaming though!
