    Sorry but VZW has capped what you are allowed to download and there isn't way, that I know of, to get around it.

    correct Jl...there is absolutley no way around this. If you need to download something that large use a computer then move it to the phone. Now, if its because your using tetherberry or something...remember that you should only be using tether berry as a filler for bad wifi areas.

    VZW will track large changes and overages and act accordinly with charges

    They know exactly when your using the Blackberry data or tethering data, so as stated here all ready, no way around it except pay for it.
    Now if your talking about downloading something large using the browser, I've seen people have luck using Opera Mini, I can't confirm this as I never had a need to try it.

    Good point I know Opera will let you download more than BB browser but I am not sure on how much bigger it will let you go. Thanks for pointing that out mrzoso
