Default blackberry messenger

Please Login to Remove!

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.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

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
