switched my original plan to the canada wide talk and text 35...mistake?


I just switched my original $25 unlimited texting and phone call plan which is no longer available to the $35 Canada-Wide Talk + Text 35 Dbl....Was this a mistake? Recently I have been paying a lot for airtime usage and last night on a whim I switched my plan because I thought I would be beneficial. I noticed I would get call display and a few other perks by switching but neglected to realize that I would no longer have free unlimited data....so I now pay the $35 + $10 blackberry social add-on but now i'm worried about my data usage as i didn't realize by switching that it would affect it.... I have a blackberry curve and the only thing I use it for is to check facebook but looking at my previous months usage I apparently use a lot of data doing this... if i connect my blackberry to my home wifi account will I be charged for looking on facebook? I am not sure about the whole data thing and am hoping that my bill isn't going to be worse 😞 any input is appreciated

Hello Jaimie, If you connect your phone to your home wifi, you wont be charge for Data usage. How much data are you using right now?

You never had free unlimited data with any plan as Erwin pointed out. Unless you used wi-fi, but switching plans doesn't change that.
Thanks for the replies, March 15, 2013 - April 14, 2013 Data usage summary Service type Count Measure Amount Data Usage 207.98 Megabyte (Data Volume) $0.00 Total $0.00 my previous month before this was 98. I never had it connected to my wi-fi previously and i wasn't being charged, even when i wasn't at home and i went on facebook. i am going to connect to my wifi now, but i guess now i will be charged if using it not at home?

If you are getting charged that means that you are NOT on wi-fi. No matter whether you are at home or not.
