How Many kb's are in a typical BBM message?
I'm going to Cancun with some friends and we all have blackberries. I was just curious as to how many kilobytes are in a typical length bbm message? Data is charged by verizon as $.005 per kilobyte, while texts are $0.50 to send and $0.05 to receive. I am assuming that using bbm would be cheaper but just want to make sure. Can someone fill me in? Thanks!

Back when datamon worked on my old 8300, I checked that data for a BBM and it uses approx 2-5kb of data per message.

I would be nervous to have data enabled in another country... I don't travel much, but if I went out of the country I'd probably want to turn data off. Remember e-mails, google sync, weatherbug, Viigo, etc... these things all use data in the background.
...Unless VZW can offer some sort of unlimited rate while I'm traveling... like $15 extra for that month or something.
