Please retype your message using some punctuation and capitalization. This not a text messaging forum. It is much too difficult to read and understand as you have written it.

Plus you will get a much better response if you make readable.

To start, do you have a BB data plan?

Yes. Call your mobile phone company and pay extra for the data service plan.

BlackBerry Chat? You mean BlackBerry Messenger?

Yes. Just make sure you buy and the carrier signs you up for the BlackBerry data service and not regular mobile data. There is a difference, and you want the plan specific for BlackBerry.

Chezza - not sure what you mean by "blackberry chat". If you are refering to blackberry messenger, then yes you should have that once you get your BB data plan.
