    BBM is data, not SMS.

    BB messaging is PIN-to-PIN messaging between BlackBerry devices and uses data. I don't think it works without a data plan.

    Yeah, It does not. You need data plan to use it.

    Does need a data plan, but why would you have a BB without one... What's the fun in that??

    That is very true... A BB without a data plan is like having spaghetti without any sauce. Makes it somewhat plain.

    Well, maybe if it's a unlocked spare (another) phone line, with wi-fi, that can browse the internet, and use other county's SIM cards like my CDMA BB can't...maybe...? That one reason just so you know there are circustances that justify a BB without a data plan.

    Well, your point is proven. But different people like different things, I cannot wait around for wireless internet since I travel with my laptop most days anyhow. I use my BB (to browse net) mostly on the bus when there is no wi-fi signal.

    Thanks for answering my question. I recently bought a blackberry pearl for my sister and I was wondering whether a data plan was needed. My family communicates 90% of the time over BB messenger since we all live in different cities.

    BBM is like a game! You have fun chatting with so many different people.
