Re: How much is 5mb of bbm?

How are you going to count your BBM messages to know how many you've sent and received?

 

First you would need to determine how much data one BBM message (sent or received) would consume... does one message of "Hey" consume a burst of one packet of data of 2kb? Or how much data does one message consume?

So emails included... web browsing on the mobile network, any other apps...

 

As you can see, it's really impossible to answer your original question of how many BBM messages can be sent with 5mb of data allowance. For one person it might be 1,000 BBM messages, for another it might be 250 messages if that person is also sending and receiving email, etc.
