approx. how much data is required to upload a max of 10 events (sms and call log only)? just wondering how much data usage will show up on the phone bill. Also, when the phone uploads data, is there any noticeable difference in the target phone (ie. does it light up, pause for a moment, etc.)? Thanks.

The amount of data depends on the content of the events. Assuming that we take 10 SMS events, each at the maximum 160 Characters, the payload size would be 1600 bytes. To this, you need to add control data ( about 1K) and the HTTP headers ( also around 1K), giving total size of 3600 bytes. Our protocol is binary, which is much more efficient than the XML text based systems that are used by our competetiors.

Normally, data usage size is not shown on a bill directly, and the destination URL is also never shown. However, we would be interested to know if any operators actually do this. From our experience, this is not an issue.

You may also be interested to know, that in preparation for new features, we are working on a brand new protocol, that will use data compression and will automatically support resume. This will also reduce the data size, as well as enable us to support the sending and recieving of binary data.

The phone uploads data in the background as a low priority thread, meaning that there is no impact to any user processes. This means that upload will not happen if the phone is being used in any way
