Default How much DATA do I need for the Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I am going the route of the blackberry bold for my first ever blackberry.

Rogers Wireless my carrier in Toronto, Canada has either a 1GB or 3GB plan.

I don't know how much I should get. I don't want to pay for the 1GB and keep going over but also don't want to pay for the 3GB and go majorly under everymonth.

I constantly use 3-4 GB data on my BB

Really depends on what you will be doing. Mostly email and messaging or a lot of interent

IMO, I used 95MB last month, I get about 25 emails / day, never hesitate to surf on the net, gone to youtube a few times and also tethered to my laptop and used RDP for a couple sessions, and streamed radio while golfing about 4 or 5 times (3 hours each). I tried to use the crap out of it to see how much i can actually use and was kinda disappointed that i only used 95MB. I dont think i will ever hit the 6gb that my plan offers.

I am amazed that ezrunner pulls 3-4gb of data.

do the math, its easy.
Nutsie streaming eats up alot of data, each song is almost 3mg, listen to 30 songs a day and you are already at 90mb daily, on a 6Gb plan you can use on average 196mb daily.
