    Online, ATT tells me that the unlimited message plan includes SMS, MMS and IM. On here, I read that on the 'berry, MMS and IM are over the data lines and not the cellular voice lines. So does that mean a 'berry with unlimited messaging sorta has a data plan and perhaps Opera Mini might work?

    Just curious, as I will be getting a bold next week (RIIIIIGHT!!!) and will get a data plan with that, and wondered if I could IM with my wife and her 8310? And if she could do some web surfing without a data plan?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    MMS uses data and text to transmit the pictures.

    For the IM part... AT&T's IM app uses text to send the messages. The 3rd party apps (which most users use on here as they pretty much all have data plans) uses data.

    If you get BeeJive IM like everyone or free ones like EQO or WebMessenger, it will be free. You can even get the free version of AIM that uses data by using this guide.
