Default Bold Blackberry Messenger question

Please Login to Remove!

HI all... just got a Blackberry Messenger from my cousin from Amsterdam just want to know if it costs me anything to receive/ send internationally using Blackberry Messenger.

Also, when I turn off Data Service in my Bold ( when I travel overseas) , does the Blackberry Messenger still works?

If you're on your local network then BlackBerry messaging to anywhere in the world is FREE. If your roaming, then you will be charged.

I don't think the BlackBerry messenger will work with data off, unless you're on wi-fi. If its on wi-fi, then don't think you will be charged.

AFAIK, BBM will not work without a data plan even over wifi.
