Question Sprint and BlackBerry Messenger

Please Login to Remove!

I was hoping someone with Sprint could comment on this for me... a friend of mine is on Sprint and we use Blackberry Messenger to chat throughout the day. As I understood it, BBM was part and parcel of the Blackberry Data Plan, meaning BBM messages were not charged as text messages were. Thing is, on the last bill, my friend got dinged for 500 text messages - and didn't think they sent that many straight SMS's.

Can someone please verify that on Sprint, they aren't charged for BBM messages like SMSs?

I've never heard of anyone with any carrier getting charged for sms using BBMessenger. It uses data.
