Data Usage while sleeping?


My bill keeps saying I have data usage at the same hour after hour (12:10am, 1:10 am, 2:10 am) but I'm sleeping and my blackberry only has the 5 basic apps running. Now I'm maxing out my plan 100Mb. What the hell?

it's most likely your push email. the way it works is instead of constantly poll ing the server the server assumes you're connected. every hour your BlackBerry sends a message to the server just to say ' hi I'm still here' it's usually not a large data transfer. try keeping your phone on airplane mode or disable data before bed.
