Default Typical monthly data usage

Please Login to Remove!


Still trying to decide between a BlackBerry and windows mobile device.

Optus in Australia offers a $99 BlackBerry cap plan for up to $500 worth of voice and sms but only up to 50 MB data and then it is $5.50 AUD per MB! (approx $4 US). There are more flexible data rates available for straight gprs plans for other devices.

So how much data do most of you end up using per month on your BB? If it is easy to go over 50MB Optus could be very expensive indeed!

Now that EDGE is up and running....i'm averaging about 35-45 MB a month....I don't sms too much...use google talk and bbm for that. I do a fair amount of browsing and tons of email.
