Welcome to BB Forums.

Our FAQ site at BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ has lots of information for new users, including this page: What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

You need a specific BlackBerry Data Plan for BB Messenger.

If you are on T-Mobile (US) I don't believe they have different data plans. There is a single unlimited BlackBerry Data Plan. It would be best for you to call your carrier.

Sorry; I read "is that it".
That is the extra service you need to get BlackBerry functions, including BBM. I do not know if there are data limits (anticipating your next question).
