    Includes 250MB Data & BlackBerry Email
    I'm pretty sure that concludes that BBM is included in this package.
    Perhaps life is just that...a dream and a fear.

    Ace, please don't keep opening new threads asking the same question. Stick on the threads you already started.

    I know that you are young, but please try to follow the rules.

    Yes, that plan shows on the page that BlackBerry Messenger is included.

    Also, when you are titling your threads, something more descriptive than "Bbm!" would be helpful.

    And lastly, since you won't be able to do any of this without a parent, now is the time to involve a parent in your 'research'.

    Yes. I'm sorry. Can I ask one more question?
    Is 250mb enough for bbm?.
    And When I download stuff from App world will it take the mb?

    You can ask as many questions as you want. Just don't keep starting new threads for them.

    250MB is enough for BBM.

    When you download stuff it will take from your data allowance (unless you are on WiFi such as at home or at a WiFi hotspot), but a 250MB allowance will be enough for normal use.

    Just don't go crazy streaming videos or music. And for the first month, keep close track of how much you are using.

    And again, PLEASE talk to a parent or guardian.

    Yes, if you have a wireless router, that is WiFi. Once you have an active BlackBerry Data Plan on a BlackBerry, you should be able to connect to that and data that you use while on WiFi won't be counted against your data limit.

    Come back once you get the device and you can get instructions on how to connect.

    I get it that your parents don't know about phones, but you will need them in order to enter into a contract. And they might be able to help you read the webpages and understand and compare the features on the pages.

    Typically, the phone service carrier/provider will allow you to track data used on their website. Again, this will require assistance from the account holder which will be someone other than you most likely a parent.

    Also, there are data tracking applications that you can install on the device.

    You need to ask the carrier that question to be sure.

    Most carriers will start charging you PER MEGABYTE once you go over your allowance.

    Ace, I moved and retitled it. Not sure if any reps from that carrier cruise the site, or how many members here use it. Most of your questions thus far could be answered by calling the carrier themselves. I'll caution you, as mama has, going beyond your plans data limits will be costly. Wi-Fi won't impact that data, so use it as often as possible.

    Must be my Wulfanese™.

    BBM does used data, and varies depending on how you use BBM. If you only converse with contacts, it takes very little. Start sending pictures/voice notes, and it's will increase. Join groups, and that size can grow quickly. I'm a member of 4 groups, and the database backup for them is approximately 10MB, so you can see how that will add up.

    Wi-Fi is how you avoid data usage. Anything done connected to it is not counted on your data. That's why on a very (to me) limited plan, being on Wi-Fi as much as possible is a good idea. I'm the last person you want to discuss data usage with though. I go through 5-10GB of data a month.

    The only data BeBuzz uses is when you download it. Not sure, but my guess is it's not more than a 1MB install.

    For the normal user, 250MB of data is plenty. I'm not normal.

    Slow down there, little one.

    You aren't going to use BBM 24/7. School is important. Sleep is important. Other activities are important.

    Slow down your obsession.

    As BigBadWulf has indicated, if you are just sending text-based messages on BBM, they don't use a lot of data.

    Sending pictures and such will use more. GO SLOWLY at first so that you will be able to see what your data usage is.

    BigBadWulf is NOT normal. You won't go through 5GB of data a month unless you are really doing ridiculous things.

    Don't go crazy streaming video or music. And connect to WiFi whenever possible.

    250 is a normal amount of data for casual users.

    Just go slowly at first so you can see.

    Yes. You will install the app that Wulf posted.

    Since you don't have a BlackBerry yet, write down the website address and once you get your BlackBerry, go to that website on your BlackBerry Browserr and install the application.

    Kiddo, you are fretting far too much, about things you don't need to. As long as you have a full BlackBerry data plan, you can do darn near everything over Wi-Fi. Relax, read through the forums some, and for G_d sake, go outside and play.
