Ok.....very frustrated right now. I got mig33 and also google talk so I could text over data, but here comes the bill from T-mobile and I have another $8+ charge on the bill for texting. I have tcp at wap.voicestream.com and I stayed away from the oz messengers. What could I be doing wrong?
Have you loaded yahoo messenger from the blackberry.com site? I know when I first did mine I was getting charged and couldnt figure it out, so I started looking around on my computer, and found out that on the Yahoo homesite up on your task bar it says mobile. Somehow it was set, that everytime I logged off from my yahoo messenger from my computer it would log onto my pearl, and I was getting charged. I had to go into the mobile page and delete everything.
Hope this helps.
If you downloaded Yahoo mess. from blackberry.com you shouldnt be getting charged.
Blackberry 8100 Pearl

$19.99 plan with 1500 minute family plan. I downloaded yak-on and they say that's all data....send and receive. I'm more an msn user than yahoo, so I can wait until I get home to use yahoo. Anyone use yak-on who can verify that it's all data?
maybe people on your msn are going to their mobile devices and so it automatically switches to sending by text somewhere in the system. I think what tony597fitter said is somewhat along the same lines.
