Generic data VS BIS data
 
Hi, I am a new guy, nice to meet you all.

I've got a bold and find difficulties in selecting 3rd party software.
How can I identify which type of data is the software using?

I know if I use the browser to browse web page will use up the BIS data,
and some one said use google sync will use up generic data.

As I got no generic data plan, so I wanna know how what data are the software using.
First I want to know is Opera mini, it is good!

Thank you everyone.

Right. Does the Facebook app use BIS or a TCP connection?

Carrier would know best.

Do you have a BB data plan? If so, you don't need anything else.

However, you should have some sort of data plan, preferably a BB data plan, to avoid the possibility of incurring huge data charges. Or just use no data at all.

I am using an unlimited BB data blan. However, I had charged by the carrier for generic data. They said I used some 3rd party software that can not supported by BIS channel. How can I know which software I can use?

I hope so, but they said they do not recommend me to installed 3rd party software... its nonsense.

Anyway thanks for you guys rely. I am looking froward to listen you guys' opinion.

or may I ask, if I disable APN setting, can I effectively prevent GPRS data usage by doing this?

Thank you
