    Question 8700g & messenger (OZ from T-Mobile)

    Advertisement



    Am a little confused, and I've searched, and got/saw MANY answers, but...

    Does anyone know for a FACT if using messenger from T-Mobile (OZ software) (AOL/MSN/Yahoo) on a BlackBerry (does not matter the model) is it classified as text, thus comes from your package, or is it charged seperately?
    I've read so much about this, yet am still not sure. Funny thing is, I called T-Mobile, and do you think they know? Well, I'll let you figure that one out...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Yesn that would be a nice sticky because some people will tell you that it uses data when it in fact uses texts. Reps who aren't familiar with the BB devices will tell you it uses data.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~we just recently switched from nextel and I almost used my 400 texts within a week.Once tmobile confirmed each indivisual text respone (a simple OK even) counted, I switched to unlimited text and data. Cheaper in the long run.

    I ended up with a $900 phone bill almost 2 years ago because I was communicating with a friend long distance using text and I only had the 1000 message package...let's just say I went WAY over that LOL

    Does this mean the Ramble IM app I got OTA to chat with my desktop AIM friends will cost me like SMS to use? T-Mobile assured me that it would come from my $20 per month data plan.

    Ramble will not charge you as a text, however, it is free and you get what you pay for in my opinion. Ramble has some major issues staying connected. When it works though, its great...

    As far as using the prepackaged client (OZ) it will charge a per text message.

    Text messaging are NOT included in the $20/month a data plan.

    If you text a ton, i suggest just going to the $19.99/mon unlimited texting.

    As far as the top 10 myths, that would be a good thread...however, where do you start because some myths that hold true for one carrier may not hold true for another carrier.
