Default Blackberry Messaging

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I was just wondering if I were to be in my home network sending a blackberry message to another person overseas who is in his home network overseas, do I have to pay for messaging?

Also, if I am overseas sending a bb message, I guess I have to pay? Just roaming or roaming plus message?

Thanks.

Using BlackBerry Messenger is all a part of your BlackBerry Data Plan, if you have an unlimited Data Plan, you can BBM to your hearts content, regardless of where the other user is located or what network.

If you are roaming on data, you could incur data roaming charges, same as if you were using any other data through the browser, email, etc...

There is no per message charge, ever. Just the data.

Thanks for you reply. I've been wondering about this for a long time. A sales rep told me that I had to pay for international BBM. Sigh... so I've been very careful not to send any international BBM. Since I have more friends worldwide on BB now & I stumbled on this forum, thought I'd ask. Thanks for the clarification.

No problem.

I BBM with friends worldwide, daily. Nothing extra.
