Default BBMing country to country...?

Please Login to Remove!


I have been going through this site and other sites and I know that I can BBM another BB in another country. My question is, can I do this when that person is in Afghanistan? Has anyone tried it? I know I will need to get international and I realize IF it works, it will probably cost more, but I honestly do not care. I just would like to know if this can indeed work and if someone else has successfully used it before. Any help or input on this would be greatly appreciated.

Yes. As long as both parties have a BlackBerry Data Plan covering the area in which they are currently located and are in data coverage areas, it will work just fine.

Also, there will be no extra charge... Its a data link, not phone link... You don't get charged for intl emails, and you won't get charged for intl BBM's
