New to BBs and just recently got the Bold 9790. Sorry if this is a weird question.
I configured my email accounts with my BB (get notifications, etc) and was wondering how much MB it uses. My plan has:
"Email and Internet BB 500MB flex" and it says "Email and Short messages".
I was wondering how much that is. Would I go over if I checked my emails a few times a day, etc.

There is no way you're going to go anywhere near 500 MB in one month checking emails......NOT EVEN CLOSE!
First of all, having a BlackBerry automatically reduces your data usage because all data passes through RIM's servers where it is compressed before being sent to your phone. Try that on an iPhone or Android!
Unless you're watching a LOT of streaming videos, you probably won't even hit 100 MB a month, so I wouldn't give it another thought. Go ahead and check those emails.
I hope that helps you.
