    If she does not have a BlackBerry Data Plan she will not be able to use BlackBerry Messenger unfortunately.

    Not necessarily true. There are blackberry plans that offer unlimited messaging of all kinds including email and BBM, but no data. I have one such plan and use BBM all the time.

    To get the new BBM on your phone you would need to install it via the Desktop Manager but I don't think RIM offers a way to download it to your computer.

    The IM & email plan does include BBM, as jobohn said.

    I meant to say the new BBM. Without a data connection, you can not download the OTA files. As far as I know there are only OTA installs for this at this time.
