Service Provider and costs incurred

Hey Guys


My playbook arrives this week, Ive read a few article's about MTN not supporting playbook? Although the articles do seem to be a bit outdated (2011). i went  onto the MTN website and couldnt find any further information on the subject, infact there is no reference to playbook on their website @ all?


Will MTN allow me to bridge the playbook to my existing contract? Vodacom seems to be the preferred playbook provider but that would mean a 2nd contract... 


Also, what are the costs involved in video messenging playbook to playbook, if connected to my cellphone account? Will i be charged over and above my monthly contract bill, or does it fall within the 'upcapped data package' that blackberry users currently enjoy?


Id appreciate your assistance. 

Thanks Smiley Happy
