Re: BBM do you have to pay...

Your friend must get the BlackBerry data plan added to her mobile provider account. She needs to call them.


And yes, all BlackBerrys are capable of communicating with each other -- as long as the are activated and registered on the BlackBerry network with an appropriate data plan.
