Rogers Blackberry Bold - Wifi and Data Plan Charges - query

I have talked to people at Rogers and have seen various posts, and I am VERY confused.

 

Currently, I have a new Blackberry Bold (since 12/14/08) with

a data plan.

 

Questions:

 

1)If I am on Wifi (as verified under managed connections - services status) and I am surfing the Internet, do I get charged for usage under the Rogers data plan?

 

2) If I am on Wifi (verified as above) and I am using BB services

such as Blackberry Messenger, is that being charged under the Rogers data plan?

 

My assumption has been that Wifi for Internet browsing (using Hotspot Browser) should NOT be charged i.e. does not go through Rogers but Blackberry services (i.e. BB messenger, my Gmail account and Hotmail) would be charged under the Rogers Data plan whether going thru the 3G network or Wifi.

 

Can someone please let me know if the above is correct as I am quite confused.

 

Thx in advance.............Elliot

Re: Rogers Blackberry Bold - Wifi and Data Plan Charges - query

Which data plane you have?, not unlimited?

All the blackberry applications doesn't work under WiFi , they need the blackberry data plan

 

1-) If I am on Wifi (as verified under managed connections - services status) and I am surfing the Internet, do I get charged for usage under the Rogers data plan? Not, but be sure, because if the wifi loose the signal you go automatically to data plan

 

2-) If I am on Wifi (verified as above) and I am using BB services

such as Blackberry Messenger, is that being charged under the Rogers data plan? i am sure that if you turn off the data plan, blackberry messenger doesn't work under wifi

Re: Rogers Blackberry Bold - Wifi and Data Plan Charges - query

Your response is somewhat unclear.

 

To answer your question, I am on a Rogers Data

plan for 2M / month.

 

Please verify the following:

 

1) If I am using the Internet Hotspot browser using Wifi for Internet

surfing, I should NOT be charged under the Rogers Data plan.....is this correct??

 

2)  It is my understanding that the Internet Hotspot browser does NOT work when Wifi is NOT working....is this corrrect??

 

Thanks in advance...........Elliot

Yes is correct.

 

2)  It is my understanding that the Internet Hotspot browser does NOT work when Wifi is NOT working....is this corrrect??

Yes is correct.

 

My other post was about all the Blackberry features, like Blackberry Messenger, mobile.blackberry.com, don't work with Wifi Hotspot Browser.
