Chapter 12. Receiving Alerts and Notific... > Features and Considerations

Features and Considerations

One of the key considerations when setting up alerts is to get the number of types of alerts and the frequency of these alerts configured to a manageable level. Too few alerts may cause you to miss critical updates, and too many alerts may cause you to be bombarded with less critical information. If you receive too many alerts, you may also find that your wireless phone bill is affected. For example, receiving daily weather notifications or infrequent but large messages can add to your data charges on devices such as RIM pagers. You’ll probably find you’re paying a fee per kB of data transferred, so watching the size of the alerts and their frequency can help you balance their benefits versus their costs.
