and in the BIS plan for $20, Email, PIN, IM operate as data and SMS just SMS.
so it doesnt make sense to go to email only.
can anyone confirm or not whether this is the case.
To answer your question:
$9.99 Email only is just that email only. I understand PIN and BBM work.
$19.99 BB Data gives you email, PIN, BBM and Internet
There is an SMS based IM program but I would suggest getting the BB Data plan and using BeeJive.
