Data Saver Blackberry Access vs Data Blocker


Have a Blackberry Curve. Plan has no data but want to access data over wireless. Currently have "Data blocker." Does "Data Saver Blackberry Access" conflict with this? How can we have wireless data access without accidentally accessing data when off wireless?

Hi Eric, the "Block Data" feature will prevent any access to our 3G network. This means your phone won't be able to connect to the internet and you can't do emails or BBM or some other messengers (Yahoo, Google Talk, AOL, Windows Live...). You can still connect to Wi-Fi networks though, which will let you go online for free (limited to web browsing and Social Media). Note that picture messages won't work either if you have a Block Data. Hope it helps! ________________________ If you see a good answer, give it a star.

So you would have to get rid of your Data blocker add-on in order to use your data saver blackberry access.

So if I turn off the data blocker to be able to access these things on wireless, what is the best way to prevent accidental data charges when not on wireless.
