    It depends on whether or not using are using the official rim/bb IM apps or going through the carrier's portal to get the apps. The apps from rim/bb all use data.

    If you download directly from Blackberries website it is data, also there is a app called Beejive im not sure if its available for the storm though yet.

    If you use verizon im app it counts as text msg.

    The only Instant Messanger programs that use SMS (text) are the ones from VZW. So she was correct in that regard.



    *Download the programs you want from BlackBerry using the link above and it uses DATA.

    You might want to try Instango. It's all data AND it combines all your IM clients in to 1.

    EDIT: I tried to post a link to the thread, but this forum does not seem to handle links the way I'm used to. Search the forum for Instango Beta.

    Doesn't the cheapest BB plan on Verizon include unlimited texts anyway?

    The ONLY way texts will be used is if you are using the MOBILE IM suite that is offered by Verizon. This suite is not available on the Storm; the preloaded IM clients shipped with the storm all use data.

    no, it does not.

    there are plans that do include unlimited messages. they are either select plans or nationwide email & messaging plan.
