Even without those email attachments being downloaded, you're still going to see a huge increase in your data usage over older BlackBerry devices. Legacy devices used BIS which compressed the data to your phone. Continuing your current surfing habits, you can expect to use about three times more data with a BB10 device.

Yes I learn this the hard when I got my bill lol but in all seriousness you should have more then 500mb if you going to use data I switched over to 1 GB and that isn't enough because of instagram & twitter!

Increased Data consumption really depends on how you use your BB10 phone. As an MP3 player? For emails? As a web browser?
Before BB10, the previous OS used a BIS which offered compression. With BB10 you no longer have any data compression with the BIS.
I'm having troubles finding the exact old BIS promotion material that stated 3 to 6 times compression.

HI Im using a consumable data plan. Meaning i subscribe only to 300Mb monthly then Id have to pay again for more data. Last night i stil had 175Mb to consume. When I woke up this morning it was all gone. I cant understand how this happened. However i noticed this problem started when i updated to 10.2.0.415. This month I have consumed over 600Mb already when usually only consume 200Mb monthly. I only use data for email and some facebook. Never streaming. Only stream when on wifi.
Im trying to find the stop auto update feature but cant seem to find it.
