Is there a way to instant message on T-Mobile without paying SMS charges? I started using T-Mobile's Yahoo! and AIM client, and figured out very quickly that each message carries the same price tag as an SMS.

In reality, data is just data. The fact that mobile phone companies charge extra for text messages is more a business practice than a technical necessity, right? Would there be software out there that could instant message through a protocol that avoids SMS charges?
