Default Blackberry AOL Messenger! Help!

Please Login to Remove!

Ok.....quick...and probably very stupid question...

Is there any way to get aol instant messenger working on the blackberry pearl without having to get blackberry service? I have t-mobile, and i have a text messaging plan through them....supposed to get unlimited instant messaging as well. but they told me since it's a blackberry it won't work, otherwise on other phones the aol would work. apparently i need to have blackberry service to get it to work. any way to get around this? answers/ideas would help a great deal!

thanks

Nope. No BB Data Plan = No Internet and No Email. Even if you try to use the OZ AIM client that charges SMS messages, it still needs the BB data connection to connect to it's server. There was a real old school way of using AIM with SMS messages. Something like text Signon YourScreenName to 4568. There were different commands like that but it was real tedious and there was no interface to make it easy since it was run purely through SMS messages. I don't even know if that still works anyway.
