    Pearlboy, welcome to pinstack!

    Sms is short text message - what most other cell phone users do. If your dad paid for unlimited text messaging then you won't have to pay for it.

    Unless your friends have bb's, you will be limited to sms or mms (text messages with pics) between them.

    What he said is correct. If you have unlimited text messages then you will not be charged for it if you use SMS messages. Text and SMS messages are the same thing in other words.

    Hope this helped,

    Re: SMS text question?

    SMS text is a text message. If you have an unlimited amount on Cingular(as I do) you should be fine and not getting charged. One way to tell is to call *225# which sends back a text and tells you your bill balance. I would think if it was much more than usual it is costing you. You can check how many text messages you have you can log into your MyCingular account or call some number(i will find that for you)

    Hope this helps

    The OZ program will use sms messages. Not data. You need an unlimited data plan for apps like ramble and im+

    I think the oz messanger is on T-mobile Pearl's, i think its aim? I have no idea if you need a data plan becuase I have the Cingular Pearl. I know that it uses text messages, not data.

    You don't want it. Trust me. I suggest trying the beta of JiveTalk. Its the best client I've used so far.
