blackberry messenger
I got a question maybe somebody here can answer. Now I have the simply everything plan through Nextel/Sprint. And I was wondering if I were to send a pin message through Blackberry Messenger to another country outside the USA would I be charged for anything? I'm new to all this and just trying to find out before I get any surprises on my bill. Thanks for your help and time.

No charges
I am from canada and i went to the states was BBMing some of the people work with and i didnt get charged anything. I havent heard of anyone getting charged for BBM in north america...maybe if you go to africa or the uk you might get charged!

If you are on your home network then you will not be charged outside of your plan. So if you send a BlackBerry message to someone in China while you are on your home network in the USA, then no charge. If you are in Jamaica, then you will be roaming, so you will be charged because you're roaming.

Data usage through BBM is very small. BBM away my friend. You'll never notice any charges
