Default Blackberry bold 9900

Please Login to Remove!

Help please!!!

I bought a blackberry bold 9900 for my daughter for Xmas (am in the UK and the provider is Orange);

She has only had the phone for 3 days and has already used a large amount of data so I am getting very worried that I will get a huge bill if she carries on at the same rate - it comes out of my bank by direct debit.

I know you can monitor the use but it seems daft to have a phone that you have only limited use if you go over the package and are worried about using.

Does anyone know if you can use a blackberry bold 9900 with Orange using your wifi access at home free? In other words bypassing the data plan?

This is a brilliant site and thanks to everyone for the help you always give.

Yes, it can use WiFi, and you should absolutely use WiFi when possible. It is important to educate your daughter on this as well.

DO NOT hijack others' threads. It's very rude!
