Default GPRS or data on T-Mobile (UK)

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I have a 7100t (on T - Mobile in the UK) and I get a 50MB instant email allowance, or they also call it a GPRS allowance. Now this is where I get a little confused because I have been using the IM+ chat program for Yahoo messenger, and although this works just fine (I have it set on HTTP mode not TCP/IP) - I'm showing as using "data" when looking at my latest calls/data on line. Is there no way to make use of my 50MB allowance or am I missing something fundamental here.

Thanks

The email allowance and Data usage are different things. You have a 50Mb mailbox for use with BWC. Your data allowance is billed monthly for data sent and received over GPRS.

I'm sorry that's incorrect!

The 50 MB allowenece is your data (GPRS) quota and not a mail box quota; the problem you face, like with all U.K. vendors in that unless the data is sent via their BlackBerry internet service it will not be deducted from your 50 MB BlackBerry data (GPRS) quota. You will have a 18 MB mailbox quota and a limit to 50 MB free data (GPRS) usage for emails that pass through T-Mo.'s BlackBerry IS, if you use software to make HTTP requests this will not pass though T-Mo.'s IS as it's not email and so is outside of your data (GPRS) quota.

Sorry if it sounds a load of waffle (I know what I'm on about, I just hope it's written in a way others outside my crazy head will understand)!
