Default QuickIM question

Please Login to Remove!

Just a question
I am new to the whole blackberry thing. And only have a small data plan, as i really wont be using it for email or browsing.

I believe that QuickIM only sends data when there is data needed to be sent, it does not scan a server to see if there is anything new..

What I would like to know is if with QuickIM and having only a 1MB data plan would I be able to leave it running in the background, or do you think I would easily run the risk of going over my limit.

1MB DP? I never know those existed...If QuickIM remains logged into MSN servers, it is doing so via keep-alive data packets. Keeping QuickIM running in the background with an open, active connection will surely impact your 1MB DP.

K cool, ya with telus it is like 1mb, and a 30mb plan nothing else. :(

I thought quickIM just acted though when an msg was sent, much like sms. only to an msn server.

Hey, yah I'm with Telus too. They're a bunch of hoars for not having an 'in between' plan (either 1 or 30)

Yes, it reacts when a message is Sent ... but will also keep on checking the server to see if you've Received something too. That's where your actual data consumption comes into question.
