Difference Between BB Prepaid Data and Others

I have a BB10 and I do not have a contract. I am out of Country a lot so I do want to pay for something I am not using. What is the difference between the BB data add on and other smart phones? The BB add on is a lot more expensive. I do not use BB messaging so can I use a regular data plan?

Re: Difference Between BB Prepaid Data and Others

If you are using a device OLDER than the BB10 series.. it is because the BB data works differently than regular data.

It uses the BIS, which is its own private data network. It ends up using ALOT less data than most smartphones (about 2/3 less).
