How much does it cost to use?
All BlackBerry bundles come with a generous 1GB allowance of data in your monthly tariff. BlackBerry data is compressed by 70% and this will be an ample amount of data to cover email, internet usage and applications on your BlackBerry device.
All downloaded applications (Facebook and Twitter for BlackBerry) use the BlackBerry APN and the usage is included in this monthly tariff.
What if I go out of town? How much does it cost to roam?
Yes, you can roam with your BlackBerry anywhere Vodafone has a data roaming agreement. You can choose to pay per MB or purchase a monthly BlackBerry roaming bundle. And because BlackBerry data is compressed by 70%, it’s a more economical method of data roaming.
To switch off data roaming,
- Choose options from the applications list
- Select networks and connections
- Select mobile network
- Select the ON option from the data service menu
- Change to OFF when roaming
