    Hi All
    I wonder if anyone knows if there is an SMS App similar to the "Text Plus 4" for the BB? My reason being my sister and I text each other across the Canada/US border and my ***** service provider no longer provides an International texting plan anymore. I think Rogers and Bell offer something like 500 cross border texts for $15.00 which is crap.

    BBM... free...
    Or ping if one of you doesn't have a BlackBerry.

    Hey thanks SCRID2000

    Yeah, I can't or haven't yet convinced my sis to go for a BB. So Ping might work for me? Two more questions: Can I receive texts with this (I'm guessing so) and does she have to have the app too (which wouldn't work out for her)

    Thanks again

    Ping is basically bbm for any smartphone, so if she doesn't have a smart phone (and a data plan) it won't work.
    I don't know of any way to do it sans smartphone...
    I suppose if she gets email on her phone, most carriers assign your phone an email address.

    i can sms my friends in US from Canada by adding their mobile number to their msn/ wlm account or make on for them and add it to the account. then u can send and rec sms from them just by address book instead of opening and using msn/ wlm.
