Default SMS Instant Messaging

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if anyone knows any software that i could download .alx for instant messaging over SMS. I dont have a data plan so i cant download OZ messenger, i need it to install over the PC. I am a fido customer, and i tryed that MSN mobile, that was great, all my emails were direct to my phone and i could go on MSN without internet on my phone by I did not have a text plan so it cost me a kidney. I took care of the sms costs by kind of..... switching my service center number in my options so now its free... until i get caught. Anyways I would love to get Im on my phone over SMS, please help.

the BB connect package that Fido offers is meant for the E62 we have. but once added to your account it will work with your 8100, they are not cheap tho

the prices are:
$40 for 7MBs which is normally good enought for moderate use
$60 for 25MBs which is good for heavy use
and then $100 for 200 MBs...

its not cheap... and those prices are on top of your voiceplan

other then that the SMS bundles with fido are (if you have voicemail and call display) then its $16 a month for call display, name display, voicemail, who called service, 2500 instant message (sent) and 2500 SMS sent... its always free to receive SMS or instant messages with Fido
