Default Regarding webbrowsing and other data things

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

I am curious about something. Blackberry browser uses MDS (I think) and therefore uses the BES server for browsing the internet. My GMail client on the blackberry does the samething. How do you know if an application uses on or the other. Is there a list someone that says whether one uses one or the other? The reason I ask is because all the data that goes through the BES is free, while everything else I have to pay HUGE for.

Thank you.

Some applications allow you to choose the data path, others do not...
