    Question blackberry messenger

    Advertisement



    So i want to start using the blackberry messenger to text, but it doesnt seem to be working. I have ran a diagnostics test and it says NO under the blackberry registration, NO under connected to blackberry, and NO under blackberry pin-pin. Is there anyone who can help me with this?

    I have tried everything.

    Thankx

    You have to make sure you have a BB data Plan. BlackBerry Messenger only works from BB to BB.

    Did you sign up with tie provider for a data plan? If yes then try resending your service books to your self. If not you need to sign up for a data plan in order to use those features

    Text message and data plans are two different things. I am also with AT&T. My data plan runs $30 per month. Text is another $5 I think. This is in addition to the voice plan. Next, if you are trying to communicate with someone w/o a BB, messanger won't work. Use SMS text in your messages menu.

    Nope BlackBerry messenger is a integral part of the BlackBerry Data Plan because it relies on BB Pin to BB Pin which go through the BlackBerry Network.

    As a follow up to this....

    Check on this ASAP. Pay per use can add up quick.

    No problem. One last thing..... Email goes thru data also. I know $30 is high, but it is worth it. I'm kind of new to BB, but no device can touch this when you have unlimited data. Good luck, and welcome to the stacks.

    I am also with AT&T and I have a data plan cos I LOVE to surf on my bb8310. I have taken off the messaging feature, ya know the IMs, and email everyone I need to. $30 a month for unlimited surfing AND email? That's dirt cheap, considering it would ordinarily cost $1 per Kb otherwise. If it wasn't for the data plan, I'd be racking about $1000 a month easy.
