But the answer is no they are not free. Unfortunately!
This depends on what the OP means by "internationally".
If he means sending a BBM whilst roaming, then no, they are not free. See here: BB Messenger
If he means sending a BBM from one's home country to another BlackBerry user in a different country, then yes, that is free.
Obviously, the ability to send any messages through BBM is dependent on the user having a BlackBerry data plan.
