    Ramble IM: SMS or Web Based?

    Advertisement



    I downloaded this from the downloads section here and I love the program. I saw somewhere that most BB IM apps are web-based but I wanted to make sure this one was. Does anyone know?

    I don't think there is a clear answer on this yet. I have heard yes and I have heard no. I am guessing that you are not on an unlimited sms package? I wasn't and for a month ever aol msg I sent I was charged 5 cents for. I went to ramble under the assumption that it was web based, however I am almost sure that I was still getting charged a per message fee. If you are like me and keep ramble running all the time (except the times that it automatically logs off) I would suggest going ahead and atleast getting the minimal sms package that you can. Or atleast until someone can give a definate yes or no answer to this.

    Does Ramble™ use SMS?
    No. Ramble connects to the network via the BlackBerry data network, not via SMS. You will not incur SMS charges when using Ramble IM

    Here is the link with the information http://wireless.sra.com/ramble/faq.html#id7

    Hope this is helpful!
