    I am a new blackberry user and just recieved my Blackberry Bold 9700 about two weeks ago. My question is...if I open blackberry messenger, don't use it and then exit (by pressing the back button or menu -> close) am I being charged for it?

    BlackBerry Messenger uses your data plan and it always running in the background. No data is sent if you aren't using it. If you open it and send or receive BBMs, yes, you are using data. BBM is included in your data plan.

    Do you have unlimited data? If so, you are fine.

    BlackBerry Messenger only uses data when you are sending or receiving messages.

    I do have a data plan because my carrier requires me to have one. I just wanted to make sure that when I close the messenger I am not being charged. My data plan is currently unlimited but I am changing it to a 200mb plan because I never really use data

    BlackBerry Messenger uses minimal data so don't worry about using it. In fact, the BlackBerry in general uses minimal data due to compression so unless you're streaming music or video, you have nothing to worry about.

    you can't close the messenger. But needless to say it WILL use your data plan.

    The only time BlackBerry Messenger really uses a lot of data is if you are sending or receiving files. Sharing music files could use a lot of data, if you send or receive a lot of them (a song is around 4 MB).

    How do i stop Blackberry Messenger group from being a default calendar on my Tour 9630? I have my Gmail account as default, but every new calendar item is listed in the "Groups" calendar.
