Hi! I'm a new Bold user, and I just had a few questions about the data plan I'm using and usage.
I can barely say it in words, so I'm having trouble typing it as is...bear with me please if I'm not making sense
1. If my free wifi access is turned on and it says the name of the wifi point next to the ROGERS text at the top of my phone's display, that means my phone is only using wifi, right?
2. I downloaded gmail and instant messaging applications, and I was wondering about the data usage while these applications are kept on; a lot?; minimum?. Also, how do you turn it off if you don't want it to use up data?
3. I have a 500mb data plan, and most of the time I'm using free wifi from UBC (my university); do my online applications automatically run using the wifi access?
And last but not least: 4
If my free wifi is not turned on, do you get charged/lose data while you keep your phone on with the 'email' application turned on?
(the reason why I've asked so many questions regarding data/money is because I had some horrible experiences with 'not knowing' in the past and racked up some giant phone bills
