Google talk uses data not text therefore if you have an unlimited BB data plan you will be fine.

Or you could use the Blackberry messenger that is found on the discoverblackberry.com owner's lounge or on the technical pages. I don't remember where I found it in the first place. If you're using T-Mobile, you could download the messenger pack which includes aol, msn, icq, and yahoo. There is also yahoo messenger for the blackberry as well.
Good luck and welcome!
