How does BBM work?

Does BBM use GSM voice frequencies? HSPA data like email? Or some secret pager frequency?

Re: How does BBM work?

BBM is a data service, sending it's data through the BlackBerry servers. So as long as you have a data componany to your phone service or are connected to a wifi network it will work over those.
