    Hi everyone,
    Im on a sim only deal for unlimited texts and 300 minutes and I have my dad's old 8100. It has BBM on it but It wont work as such.. When I add a contact its still in pending and doesnt send to them and I cant receive their invite. Possibly a stupid question but is it because I need access to the internet/WiFi?
    Any response would be great, Thanks!

    Nope, you need a data plan in order for BBM to work.

    Yes, you need a blackberry data plan for BBM. It uses RIM's servers to work, so it's not going to work without being connected to the servers.
