Default Data services

Please Login to Remove!

Same IT guy refuses to allow data to be used on our company system, says too expensive. I understand if you connect locally, as if browsing the web on a normal mobile that might be the case, but I thought that browsing on a blackberry takes place over the BES? And therefore data is compressed and cheap.
What does he have to do to enable this service? And am I right?
Lastly, I want to use the Gmail app on my Blackberry, but of course it doesn't work as we have no data service! All advice gratefully received. Thanks.

Not exactly sure what you are taling about. If you have BES, and get company email to the BB that way, then you have a BB BES data plan.

Many companies lock out what you can and cannot do with THEIR company device. It is their right to do so. And for many, if you try to circumvent their policies, then that is grounds for dismissal. Not a good idea to fool around on BES.

Sorry if not clear.
I'm talking about using browser on the Blackberry, and all other data services, for example Gmail's app. Yes, we get email, but that's it. On the Bold GPS is off too. i.e. it has been set to use only email and phone, no more. Because our IT guy says it is expensive! Correct? Or not.

Quite possibly correct. You may not have an unlimited data plan.
