I am thinking of getting a blackberry plan which includes 250mb of internet usage... i was just wondering whether or not this would be enough?
I would be on bbm all day and using facebook and email regularly.
I also dont understand what comes out of the internet usage and what is included in blackberry email service
Any help would be much appreciated

bbm and email just use much data .
facebook apps same as twitter ones do . in evenings i can use like 40mb a night just going on facebook / twitter i use wifi when at home
if you use facebook /twitter via the wap it not eat so much the apps do
i would get something with about 500mb's which i have
get a package with 500mb then add the bbi on top which i did and got a blackberry hehe .
you can get a data counter app from blackberry .

Thank you for your post, it is great to see you again.
The BlackBerry price plans which include 250MB of data are designed to to allow you the freedom to use your device how you wish.
The reason we have specific price plans for BlackBerry is because they include the BlackBerry services such as messaging and these are channelled using the BlackBerry servers (which is normally charged separately @ £5 as well as needing internet also @ £5).
250MB of Data does cover the majority of our customers comfortably, as not as much usage is needed on a BlackBerry handset as the Data is condensed.
Using your device to download large files, stream videos or music will use your Data quicker, but for BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) and apps such as Facebook you will be fine.
I personally use these applications loads daily and have never breached my Data allowance, you can keep an eye on your Data too using the information here.

Let me know how you get on now that you are able to make an informed decision.
