Re: bbm

Are you using BBM over the mobile network?

Or are you connected to WiFi a great time of the day?

Are you sending large files, pictures, or such over BBM?


Plain old simple chat will not have a large effect on your data usage. It's not a lot of data.

Re: bbm

I'd say about 65 percent mobile network... 35 percent wifi.... give or take... so it shouldn't be a big hit to data plan?.... I would assume it would take thousands to really make an impact?
