I have nokia c6. I have few doubts regarding mobile internet.
If i activate mobile internet on my mobile and if i use applications like Whatsapp, Skype, Google Maps, Fring and so on, will i be charged for data used though those applications? Is it counted as browsing too? Or will it be free for me?
Please do let me know.
Thanks in advance.

Fido: Nokia C6-00
The Nokia C6-00 is NOT in the Smartphone section of the FIDO site.
Therefore Unlimited Mobile Browsing applies to this phone, you can get it as a stand-alone option $10.00 or as part of $15.00 Value Pack. But you still have to pay for Games & Themes, Ringtones.
Bell: Nokia C6-01 as a smartphone
C6-00 = Touch-Screen| Physical Keyboard|5MP Camera > Fido
Symbian OS version 9.4 | Sold as regular Phone
C6-01 = Touch-Screen| Virtual Keyboard| 8MP Camera > Bell
Symbian^3 OS | Sold as Smartphone
From the FIDO Site Re: UMB
Enjoy the full mobile browsing experience including one-click access to popular sites such as Google, Yahoo!, Windows Live, Facebook and more. Use of data applications (i.e. Gmail, GoogleMaps) is also covered with these add-ons.
So It seems that WhatsApp,skype should be covered
Thanks for resosponding REN
Thats what is mentioned: Get unlimited mobile browsing and applications use for your mobile phone (i.e. non-smartphone). Is just Gmail and Google Maps free or all?
I hope all apps are included, i had asked customer care, and even they werent sure about it.
what you mean by *MobileMail* and *instant messaging applications*?
Because if am not wrong Skype is an instant messenger right?
If u really dont mind, can you give me examples for MobileMail and Instant Messaging.
Thanks for the reply
MontrealFido, Mobile mail is an application fido offers to check your email that you wont incur a data charges or need a data plan, however you will need a monthly subscription fee which i think is $5 a month, if you use Skipe, it will work as fidojudy is talking about another program called FidoIM which is also similar to mobile mail, it requires seperate subscription
what fidojuhdy means is if you use these specific programs, they wont work alone with the unlimited onddevice browsing, since skipe is not one of these, your OK
