any body when you have data plan if you use the yahoo messenger do you have to pay for it like sms or not ?
when you have a data plan you do not need to pay for yahoo messenger, when you do not have data plan, you will have to pay for it.
for example: data plan= instant messaging clients free text.
no data plan= instant messaging charge for use.
i hope this helps good luck.
p.s. i have data plan and use instant messaging a lot and i get no charge. without this feature you'll get charges .
Have to be careful. My friend was with tmobile and she had the data plan while using yahoo instant messager that came on the phone. She didn't understand why she was being over charge for SMS, when she barely text anyone. We called to check on this and a tmo rep said the instant message that comes on the phone uses SMS, even though you have a data plan. It was crazy. I just gave her the link to download from RIM and delete the instant messages that came on the phone. Just to be safe, just use the ones provided by RIM and you'll be fine.
