So you don't have a data plan.

A data plan is what the BB uses for email and web browsing. With a data plan you have more options for IM applications.

Well if you have BBM than you have a data plan it's the only way it will work. try going to mobile.blackberry.com on your BB and then instant messaging for the Blackberry smartphone and follow the links for AIM.

Your T-mobile 8100 should come with the OZ messenger program that lets you use AIM via Text messages.
