Yes, the first 3 months is true unlimited.
If you use any of the modern single socket IM software, expect about 500 kilobyte per day of usage if you idle 24/7 for the background status update and keepalive stuff. I sometimes use WebMessenger for reliability, and VeriChat for user friendliness, but both are getting quite similiar. There are plenty of others.
Earlier versions of VeriChat (separate sockets per chat network), consumed quite a lot more data while idling, and could easily exceed the cap while idling. But it's now possible to idle 24/7 all month long and not use much data.
Anyway, you can browse as much as you like in the first 3 months if this is your first-ever BlackBerry with Rogers (please verify that you are really on the "3 month" special no limits plan, though)
