    Ramble IM counts as TXT messages?!?!?!?!

    Advertisement



    I'm on VERIZON network and just found out that Ramble IM's count as txt messages! That is absolutely crazy. Everytime I blink I'm spending more money to upgrade things just to be able to do what I need.

    Might have to go back to regular verizon phone and get a tmobile sidekick 3 with the $30/unlimited plan!

    This is crazyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, thought IM's were part of unlimited data!

    Really? Ramble IM's count as Data on Nextel's network. How odd that they count as txt on verizon.

    If it's through ramble, I don't see how they are even seeing it... SMS's are handled completly differently than IM through a 3rd party app.... I don't see how...

    Have you seen the charges or is it something they told you?

    Yes it is 100% possible. I spoke with (4) verizon data techs today and they confirmed. Plus, on my bill I was charged for 481 text messages, which I maybe sent 50 text message. The only explanation for the other 431 would be Ramble IM. According to them, Verizon charges for every single IM sent or Received.

    The way ramble works on your blackberry is the same way it works on your PC....

    It connects to an IP (basically) and sends information through that IP. Which is all data... As the previous people asked... are you sure you are using Ramble... Because, I don't know how they would be charging text messages that can't see. It's just data......

    again,

    How can they possibly see data as a text? I'm just not buying this one... Simply because there would be no way to see what ramble is sending, it's just data

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~That doesn't make logical sense.Cannot see how a 3rd pty software can be routed through verizon. I can see verizon charging through the AOL software which came with the phone, but not Ramble
