Blackberry Messanger, if there a COST?
 
yes, like the title says, will there be a cost to use it, lets say as an sms message charge? or is it free to us??? thanks.
fyi- i search the forums but all i found through different threads was on setting up the messanger and adding contacts. Thanks in advance.

I don't believe there's a cost for it since it uses BlackBerry service...and you're already paying for that through your cell provider.

can i get an assurance on this? cuz, woah, im already paying to much in txt's..heheh

There isn't an additional cost to this unlike sms. It's paid for by your data plan.

Confirmed (with a gotcha).

The BlackBerry Messanger is using your BlackBerry data plan. IF you have an unlimited BlackBerry Data Plan then the BlackBerry Messanger is completely free on additional charges. If your do not have an unlimited plan you may end up with additional charges based on data usage.

Right, thanks d_fisher for the clarification with the unlimited/limited data.

I called Rogers CS about this same issue, since I could not find the answer anywhere. The CS rep told me PIN messages through BB Messenger use less than 1KB of data; approximately 5 messages add up to 1KB.

BB Messenger works via pin therefore it comes off of your data package. There is no seperate charge for it. Pinning uses miniscule amounts of data.

Nope. No charge with T-Mobile
