    BB mesenger v. PIN and $$$$$$

    Advertisement



    So... my girlfriend, who gets 95 percent of my texts, has ATT and I have verizon. She doesnt have a data plan so we cant email. I was wondering, do you get charged for sending a text when you send a PIN Message? Or does the total texts alloted per month get drained as you send them.

    Also, is BB messenger only for people with a data plan? Because I have requested to add her as a contact and the message isnt going through on her side. Thanks a lot, prob tmi at the beginning....

    Both the PIN and BBM require a data plan. To recieve she will need to have a plan added to her BB.

    to use BB messenger yes you need DATA plan

    text messages is always part of the plan but that should already be added to your gf plan

    Emailing also part of Data plan


    i dont have BB data plan as i have my work plan (crappy Moto Q) however i just use my BB for texting and showing it off!!!

    i am happy with it..i don't see the use of having DATA plan until i know alot of people have it such as having BB..only 5 of my friends has BB and i only txt two of them often...so not point of paying 15 bucks a month for maybe 100 bb a month...

    its all up to you

    I didn't think you could message with the BB unless you had the Data Plan.

    You can text message with any blackberry on any service (and MMS on T-mobile with all units and Cingular with some of the newer units). You can only use BBM and some other IM programs with a data plan.

    I thought texting was separate unless you had the BlackBerry Minutes and Mail package on T-Mobile.
