APN Blackberry.net vs. internet

Hi there,

 

I was told that BB should use APN Blackberry.net for all communication except streaming (youtube etc.) and tethering (wifi hotspot mode). But I see on my bill that it connects through apn internet from time to time as well, usually only few kb. I looked in my service book and didn't find any service other than wap and wifi using APN internet. The only thing which I can think of is assisted location services, but I guess that I would find it in service book...

 

Does somebody know how to get this under control? How do I find which service from service book is used by particular application?

 

Is there way how to disable communication through APN internet on my device? I can ask the carrier to do that, but I need it from time to time for tethering ...

 

Thanks

Hello Jose1

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

 

Streaming Videos like YouTube videos uses Wap browser which is indeed associated with APN ,So I think you heard wrong but for tethering it uses your APN .

If needed you can remove / edit your APN , which will disable any services that are asscoiated with APN.

Re: APN Blackberry.net vs. internet

Hello,

 

Thank you for your answer. Simply - there is something on my device communicating through APN internet and I want to know what it is.

 

You mention, that youtube uses WAP browser ... is it correct that services WAP2 Transport - direct and WAP2 Transport are setup to use APN internet? If it is incorrect, how can I correct it?

 

Thanks

 

Josef
