Storm 9500 & YouTube

I've noticed that if you stream videos from YouTube the Storm uses WAP. But I've read somewhere that if you've got the YouTube app installed & use it to stream the videos you actually do not use WAP/GPRS; is this true? Just wanted to verify this info before starting to stream videos as I don't want to be slugged with hefty fees when I get my bill at the end of the month. Thank you very much!

Re: Storm 9500 & YouTube

Yup I'm on an unlimited data plan. But my service provider (vodafone australia) have said that I'll only have that "unlimited internet access" if the BB web browser is used. I know it's stupid (most likely same goes for my question) but I just want to make sure if WAP/GPRS is used if you stream videos from YouTube without installing & using a YouTube app.

Hi Kaynam69!

 

If your stream YouTube via http://m.youtube.com then you'll be using internet through your web browser. AS you've mentioned that you're on unlimited plan I guess it won't be an issue. The reason vodafone is putting that type of bar is stop using you're phone as IP modem.
