data usage for the new BlackBerry

I upgraded from the torch to the z10. I was asked by the Bell sales associate why bb. I told him because it's different, Canadian, and I liked the data compression! Well there is no data compression. I've been paying overage charges every month and this last month monitored my usage. I'm barely using the z10 and I've burned through half my data allowance in a couple of weeks! I'm very disappointed and wondering what BlackBerry can do for me and the rest of is dealing with this issue!

Re: data usage for the new BlackBerry

It is commonly known that BB10 doesn't use data compression anymore. It is like any other mobile device data plan. That is both good and bad. The BIS outages were really bad press and made people hate BB. The data compression saved people money on their phone plans, though. In the end it was a business decision to move away from BIS.

Re: data usage for the new BlackBerry

It should be especially commonly known to you since you had already asked and gotten an answer.

Re: data usage for the new BlackBerry

You really find it necessary to name-call? Go troll another forum.

Re: data usage for the new BlackBerry

Yes, I do! I feel cheated and your smug comments aren't helpful! So ya I'll go troll another forum, because that's what I do with my time, and you keep worrying about your post counts! Looser
