Default T-Mobile Billing for PocketDay

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB Pearl from T-Mobile that is connected to a Corporate BES server. I just started using PocketDay and love it. Since PocketDay is sending regular updates to my Pearl for Weather, Stocks and News . . . does anyone know how/if I get billed for that inpu? Are those regular updates considered data or messages or minutes or what? I don't want to suddenly be surprised with a gigantic bill for the pleasure of regular weather updates? Thanks !

PocketDay™ uses Data. Unless you corp has policies about using it's bandwidth, you'll be fine.

Unless an app uses SMS/MMS (check its specs with the software maker) you won't get billed. I guess the other possibility is if you're on a limited Blackberry data plan and have exceeded your monthly data allocation...
