Re: Will I get charged for using Instant Messengers?

I've checked my detailed billing online for the past week or so, and it appears that all of the Yahoo IM's are indeed going through as data, and not SMS.  Again, I downloaded the Yahoo IM program from the www.blackberry.com site.  Hope this helps.

Re: Will I get charged for using Instant Messengers?

Hi, I Activated my Storm on 17th Dec and got my First Bill for Storm at the end of Dec (me billing cycle ends at the end of every month)..I used IM(Yahoo and GTalk ) since I got the Storm from 17th and I wasn't charged anything extra for SMS/Texting. I was charged only for the Data plan for those 12 odd days or so....IM is included in Data plan..


Is it true about the $69 promotion abt Unlimited Data and Text with nation wide plan??? Has any one got more info abt this one....Currently I pay $69.98  for unlimited data and nationwide plan(450 mins)....
