Thumbs down BBM on Rogers requires BB Data Plan - iOS/Android works on any data plan?

Please Login to Remove!

This really isnt' fair... I have Rogers and I am unable to use BBM on my plan because they told me in order to have a data plan I can't have BBM. I would need to have a specific BBM data plan. They said it was because of the routing or something?

Now I am seeing that iOS and Android users are getting BBM.... and it works with their standard data plans. How is this fair?

Is there a new version of BBM for Blackberries that work with the standard data plan?

Z and Qs can use BBM without a Data Plan, only BB10 devices.

You must be new to BlackBerry.
