    Im thinking about buying a BB soon but first wanted to ask about the messenger.

    I have friends and family in France with BB's - on French networks

    I also have friends and family in Canada with BB's - on Canadian networks....

    If i get one here in England on a English network, can i still use the BBM to talk to them for free?

    Also do i need a internet package in my contract to use BBM?

    Thank you very much

    Welcome to CrackBerry!

    BBM will work globally, as long as the contact has a plan to provide for it. As far as what you require, search in the carrier section you'll be with, and if the answer isn't already there, ask.

    Welcome to CrackBerry. The Wulf said all there is to know about your immediate question. You may also wish to read BlackBerry Help | CrackBerry.com for lots more basic BB information. That one will be particularly handy once you have a device in hand.

    I have a lot of family & friends in Canada with BBs & BBM is the reason why I got one too.
    As long as everyone has data to support it, its free messaging.
