Well since you dont have the Blackberry Data plan, do what I do. Dont use any of RIM's apps because they all need at least BIS and use third party apps. Nimbuzz is a all in one chat client that works fine, or you can pay for Beejive.

If they want to get sales they should sale blackberry data service for prepaid... as they sold me the phone for 350.00 and didnt say the fact... if they sale the phone in the store to prepaid users then they should sale the phone services to prepaid users dont you agree... ive been with atnt 3 years and all ive gotten out of them was hassle and i blew my money if they really want to keep customers they should help them more

When you bought the phone, did you tell them you were using prepaid? If so, then the sales person should have told you what services would and would not work. If you didn't tell them you were using prepaid, they could assume you were buying the phone with plans to unlock it and use it with another carrier.

Someone here mentioned that Vodaphone had the BBM service for prepaid? Might want to ask him/her if that is actually correct.

if you need to use messengers and cant use the ones you already have on the phone, download either nimbuzz or im+ lite. both are free to download. i like im+ lite because i can use it with and without wifi. i dont know how this is possible since i dont have a data plan, but it works without wifi!!
oh by the way, nimbuzz and im+ lite are an all in one chat clients where you can get online via msn messenger, aim, yahoo, gchat, facebook chat, icq, jabber, etc...
here is the link for im+ lite
BlackBerry instant messaging. IM+: Instant Messaging for BlackBerry. MSNÂ®, Yahoo!Â®, Google Talkâ„¢, AIMÂ®, JabberÂ®, ICQÂ®, FacebookÂ®, MySpace, Skypeâ„¢ and Twitter :: BlackBerry :: Products
