When my parents get the bill, they're going to kill me if I'm charged for all those extra AIM msgs. I really did think it was data?? But with T-mobile I guess its not? gosh dangit t-mobile.
I believe that the AIM app that comes preloaded on a T-Mobile BB does in fact use text message (SMS).
However, if you download the standalone AIM app from AOL's site, that app uses your unlimited BB data plan on T-Mobile.
It sounds goofy, but just download the regular AIM app and stop using the preloaded one on your BB.
