YouTube Charges???

Hi,

 

Not too sure if this issue is 'service provider' related or a setting/software problem. I have a BB 9320, currently on a Pay as ya Go tariff with Orange (EE). When I go on YouTube via my mobile network I incur charges when streaming videos, and it aint cheap... I had £5 credit today, after a 5min video on YouTube I was down to £1.97!!??

 

This issue only relates to YouTube as I can stream other forms of video media from other sources completely free.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: YouTube Charges???

That would be related to your carrier, Orange (EE). Since you're on a PAYG plan, you're being charged for streaming YouTube videos. Many carriers charge extra for things on PAYG plans that come standard with monthly data plans.

 

 

Cheers.  :smileyhappy:

Re: YouTube Charges???

Thanx for the speedy response. I thought as much. Feeling well and truly cheated though as a warning from Orange would have been nice, first I knew I was being charged was a notification that I only had £1.97 credit remaining!! :smileyfrustrated:
