I don't understand how I have the IM application on this phone and I have always been able to IM on other phones, but now I can't?
Without the BB plan on your account, you should be able to use the Oz IM Client. However, you need the T-Mobile BB Feature Enabler, which lets you do things like IM, MMS without having a paid BB plan.
Of course, I'm assuming you have the Oz IM Client on your phone. You should call T-Mobile and ask them about IM'ing and the feature enabler.
BTW, Oz IM Client counts each IM towards your text message usage.
