I guess the second point on the FAQ pretty much answers that. So I can't get it as long as I'm with that provider (Telus) because they don't offer an unlimited data plan for any PDA device.
Disadvantages of Using IM Instead Of SMS:
* Cost of software such as annual subscription fee, although this may be still be cheaper than the cost of an "Unlimited" SMS add-on.
* Not good if you do not have an unlimited data plan;
* Overkill, if you only do very infrequent SMS or IM;
* Other people need to run IM software too, or log onto an IM system over SMS. (People can log onto AIM using SMS, so you that SMS users can send messages to your IM client that way!)
