Important information about data usage:

The data amounts displayed and suggested usage per unit are estimates only. The size of apps, songs, web pages and e-mails may vary widely. Streaming video in HD may also generate increased usage. Actual data usage will vary depending on the specific content viewed or downloaded, your device type and other factors.

The following activities also require data usage from your Bell Mobility service. However, they are not included in the estimate provided by the data calculator:

Tethering: Sharing your mobile data connection with a computer via USB cable

These activities can use large amounts of data. Additional charges will apply if you exceed the amount of data included in your rate plan and/or data feature.

No data is used from your Bell Mobility service if you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network.
