i know that messenger is based on blackberry servers. i recently moved to the uk and dove head first into this blackberry scene. many of my friends as well as my wife have a blackberry in the states. if we exchange pins, can we use blackberry messenger to communicate?

PIN messaging works fine from country to country, and it doesn't matter where you are as long as you are BB Data Plan.

Blackberry messenger actually uses specially formatted PINs to send the chat back and forth, so if you can PIN you can use BB Messenger.

A little off topic.. sorry

What if I am roaming from Canada to the USA.. Do additional charges apply for BBM?

The only extra charges would be for international data, and that all depends on the data plan you have. BBM messages are tiny and use a few scant kbs per message.
