    Hey, ive had my Curve 8520 for about 4 Months now, and i dont have a BIS or BES plan,
    and at first my BBM wouldnt work, i assumed it was because i needed the plan.

    but a few days ago i got a random request from BBM and now i realize it does work.

    anyone know whats going on?

    You probably have a social networking plan which allows you to use social apps like bbm, facebook, twitter, ect. Rogers and Telus are the only carriers I can think of who offer that plan.

    my plan says
    400min shared voice + data w/msgs from rogers...
    i looked on their website and the closest plan i could find to that included social networking so i think thats it.
    but in the legal disclaimer it says "Unlimited social networking using basic features of select applications (built-in at time of purchase) and browsing on select social networking sites. Not available for BlackBerry devices."

    sorry if this is a double post... i dont know how to edit.
    but i googled around and it looks to be legit,
    it says any blackberry activated on an unlimited messaging plan gets free bbm as of march 2011, so i think i solved my problem.
    thanks for your help.

    Oh yeah, you must be talking about the $30 unlimited bbm and messaging plan launch by Rogers recently. This must be the plan you are talking about:
