Smile Is there a Free AIM app? (aka no txt mssg charge)

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I just got my BB a month ago and had the painful realization that AIM messages were counted as txt mssgs by Tmobile and charged as such! They were nice enough to let me opt into the $5 to cover it all plan, but this leads me to my question: I have an unlimited data plan, why cant I use an AIM app that communicates via the internet? ya know, the one my phone is connected to 24/7?

There MUST be a hackers solution. Ideas?
