    Is PIN messaging considered text or data?

    This may have been covered, but I could not find it. When using PIN messaging, is it text messaging or is PIN messaging included in the Blackberry data plan?

    Data for all carriers. If you want to know more, there are a few of these threads going around.

    Re: Is PIN messaging considered text or data?

    I've read quite a few of those threads and here is what I don't understand:
    If I want to send PIN messages I have to have a data plan with a network provider. But if this network is down I am supposedly still able to message via PIN as the connection is made from BB to BB? Is this correct?
    It has been written in this forum that the emergency services during the latest hurricane disaster had no other means of communication but PIN whilst "the network" was down.But if I don't have a network why need a data plan?
    Or am I missing something here? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I must have totally misunderstood what was written in other threads. Just to clarify...PINing does not go past the network provider, it still racks up the transfer of data that the customer is billed for, am I right?

    PIN messaging is an email, you need to have a Internet Data plan (with email) or Email only Plan to use PIN messages and runs only off the Blackberry network not the Carrier. You need the plan from the carrier because they are passing on the charges from RIM to the Carrier.

    blackberrry messenger is just a interface for using pin messaging. If you use BB messenger you are just sending PIN's back and forth
