It is still in operation if you just hit the escape key instead of closing it.

What type of plan do you have?

Msn uses very little data in the background.

I leave it running a lot. In addition to that, I browse frequently everyday and I got about 32mb of data my first month.

I was very surprised when I got my bill. I thought for sure i was near my 500mb limit but I was nowhere near it.

Its such a shame i can't get youtube to work properly or i'd probably be using it alot more.

Default Data usage

Its so crazy the difference in amout of data the blackbeery and iphone use. I used to use nearly a gig easy with my iphone. This is my first month witha blackberry so ill be surprised to see the difference. If you guys are saying 32 mb is a lot, I think I'm in good shape. Has anyone ever surpassed 500mb with blackberry in a monthly period without tethering?

It can be done yes.

If you use a lot of streaming radio or video it will rack up pretty fast. For just browsing and msn it won't rack up too fast.
