| | using all my bonus data?
Please Login to Remove!
I only got my blackberry yesterday so I hardly understand anything yet, and I activated by BIS yesterday also, however, my bonus data came through today.
I am in Australia and with the carrier Three, and got a 500mb internet pack which gives me unlimited BIS data.
I have switched data use on roaming off, but I just checked my internet usage (which, I might add, only popped up an hour ago) and it says I have already used 150mb of data.
Yesterday, when I went to the store, my internet was not working, only BIS data was. So I could use all the apps and my wifi but not the internet through my carrier's WAP. However, at about 5pm tonight while I was on the train, the internet turned on and I was able to use the WAP. I don't know, however, if that's because I changed a setting in advanced options >> browser >> default browser configuration >> internet browser. It was originally set as 'Planet 3', and when that was the case it kept asking me to sign up for mobile internet packs whenever I attempted to use google. Did I do something to the settings which is now going to train all my bonus data?
I am freaking out because I don't understand how I used 150mb of data in an hour, and even if it had been working yesterday, in one day.
My question is - WHAT USES BIS DATA AND WHAT DOESN'T USE BIS AND HOW CAN I FIGURE OUT WHEN I AM USING MY BONUS DATA AND WHEN I AM USING BIS? Is my blackberry using WAP over MDS data? How can I check?
Why would it be doing this if I have unlimited data for BIS? I thought that that meant whenever I used Facebook or anything else, it wouldn't eat in to the bonus 500mb I have. Also, since the internet was relatively inactive last night, I was just using wifi. I tried using the internet with wifi switched off and it did not work. Was I deceived, and it was using WAP anyway when it did work?
Are there settings I need to check or change? Also, what the hell does 'Browser Push' mean? How can I tell if I am using the Blackberry browser or the Three WAP?
