    Question Instant messaging

    Advertisement



    This may be a stupid question, so forgive me if it is. I tried looking for the answer before posting but couldn't find anything. Is there a program for instant messaging ( i mainly use AIM) that will not charge the instant messeges as text messages or is this possible?

    Your should have an IM icon that provides AIM, MSN, Yahoo and ICQ I believe if you have the data plan.

    schmunger that program (I assume you are referring to that comes pre-installed on Tmobile) uses SMS/text messages not data

    Re: Instant messaging

    Actually the program that comes preinstalled uses data AND text messaging. All other 3rd party chat programs use data ONLY so feel safe about that. I recommend jivetalk. Or you can also do a search on google talk and connecting with different transports.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ The built-in OZ client does not use data.

    Re: Instant messaging

    It does use data, you'd need to have BB internet to even get the icon.

    Re: Instant messaging

    Forgot to add than when using oz you'd have to sign in, and signing in is impossible without internet. My friend has a dash that has the same oz client and only signs on when he's using wifi (cuz he has no internet plan for dash) .

    Re: Instant messaging

    I think you need the data service book, but technically it uses up your SMS. Just to clarify.
