Is it true that in order to use BB messenger you have to have a BB data plan? I don't have a personal email account configured and when I contacted Tmobile to help me they said that I have to set up an internet connection and an email account.
Thanks a lot
Yeah, a legit BlackBerry
data plan is needed to use BBM. It authenticates through RIM's servers. You need the BIS plan, but I don't think you have to set up an email account. If you do need one, they give you an account like
. You can set it up on the BIS page after you have the BIS data plan on your account and simply uncheck the box for "forward mail to handheld".
