    Google Talk - uses SMS?

    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    I was just wondering if the Google Talk application uses SMS like the Blackberry Messenger does - I'm not signed up for a text messaging plan and I don't want to rack up charges on Google Talk!

    Thanks,
    Gemmy

    Yes, it does use data, not SMS.

    The BB messenger also uses data and not SMS.

    Interesting - I felt like I read/heard that the BB messenger uses SMS from a number of sources. Could this be carrier dependent?

    No and no.

    Google Talk uses data. BlackBerry Messenger also uses data.

    Neither of these applications uses SMS, and this fact is carrier-independent.
