The standard internet usage on BlackBerry® is very low. This means that usually, you use less data on a BlackBerry device, than with other Smartphones. We advise our customers to subscribe to a 1 GB BlackBerry Bundle, as this bundle provides enough data for browsing.
To keep track of your data consumption, we’ve recently launched our Data Portal; allowing you to manage how much data you use. Once you’ve fully consumed your data bundle, you’ll be redirected to our Data Portal, where you’ll be able to purchase various types of data bundles. 8.
