    may have been done before but i couldnt find it. do I need the data plan to use this? I know, why have a BB if i dont have data. Well, I cant afford it and I use everything else but the net. I do use the wifi when I need it but I havent really found a need for the extra $30 a month to justify the plan. anyway, wondered how the messenger plan worked. thanks

    Yes, a data plan is required to use BlackBerry Messenger.

    BBM uses Blackberry servers to do all the communication... therefore it does require a BB Data Plan.
