BBM

[ Edited ]

Blackberry Torch 9800.  Have a basic package with Sears connect.  No internet.  Now should the BBM within the Blackberry still work?  I thought, that as long as you had a  Blackberry smartphone the BBM message should work, is that  not correct? Do I need a data package to use my BBM?

Re: BBM

No, you will need a BB data plan in order to use BBM on the 9800. If you have a Z10, Z30, Q5, or Q10 then a data plan is not needed.
