New Blackberry User on Prepaid.

Okay, So I'm going to buy a Blackberry Torch 9800 Tomorrow to use on my Telus Prepaid account, but I was curious is there any applications I need to block from using data so I don't use up all the accumulated balance on my phone? And if there are how would I go about blocking them from using data, I heard about doing it but I don't know how. Thanks in advance for the help.

Re: New Blackberry User on Prepaid.

you'll not enjoy much without any data, BlackBerrys are made for data.


But, nonetheless, go to your Manage Connections Screen > Mobile Network > Data Services - OFF.
