First, you must have a blackberry data plan. Not a generic data plan, either; but a specific blacberry data plan. Do you have that?
If you have a blackberry data plan, it may, of course, be bundled with your monthly service fee, or added on. It may be capped, or unlimited (or "unlimited" with a soft cap).
Blackberry Messenger uses data. You are paying for the data sevice; but not for the individual messages.
So, you can send a blackberry messenger message to another user who also has blackberry data service and a blackberry, for "free" and it only charges against your montly data allotment.
