Yes you will. I tried a PIN messaging with a boost sim (nextel prepaid) and would not work. So basically you are going to need a data plan.

Yes, you need a data plan for Pin to Pin messaging. With a voice plan you have voice and SMS only.

^^ why is that offically retarded? You should not be able to reap the benefits of a deice without paying for the proper data plan, do you want your email also without a data plan?

because, except for the network aspect involved, it is the exact same process as SMS.

Anyone who has used Blackberry Messenger can assure you... PIN has far more capabilities.

A simple agreement would have probably worked just fine. data plan is necessary
