Re: Blackberry Messenger

Ok thanks...So with just a regular data plan i can use the blackberry messenger to message someone in the United States as long as they have a blackberry with a regular data plan? no extra charges like $0.15 per message? I message the United States alot, so I am wondering if this is a cheaper option.
