    Dear all GSM users,

    For those who do Shoutcast streaming, can I ask one question:

    I notice every time I connect to one station, I will use up about 120kb in my GPRS.

    I just want to know whether my GPRS is used up as I listen to the radio OR is it just a one time connection...and then I just listen without using up kbs.

    Thanks (don't want to spend a bomb on listening radio)

    You are using data for every moment you are connected to the radio station. Most Treo optimized stations are 32 kb/s or lower I believe, which means you are downloading 32 KB for every second of music you listen to.

    Cheers,
    Brady

    haha...NOW that makes me wonder...why the hell is Singapore carriers charging so freakin expensive GPRS charges...our unlimited plan here is Singapore dollars 100++...

    And WHAT?!! Your unlimited is only $4.99? You sure...

    What the hell is my carrier doing....charging 0.53 (Singapore cents) cents per kb...

    guess I just have to wait...Does Tmo have 3G plans? If yes, is that why GPRS became so cheap...

    Thanks...
