So then it sounds like the problem is with RIM, not with the hosted BES companies. Either way, I still have no way to use AIM with my Blackberry and I cannot afford to spend $65/month on data. $45/month for the blackberry plan is even stretching my budget, but I cannot afford to spend another $20.

As soon as the Nokia 9300 is released in the US, good chance I will sell my 7100g and get one of those. I can get a data plan for a Nokia smartphone for $25/month from Cingular.
