    I just ordered a 8330 curve through verizon and im wondering is there a way not to use up your text messages when using AIM or Yahoo Msger? Also is the messaging instantaneous like on the web or is there a lag like regular texting?

    Shouldn't be a lag, but it does use messages, you could try BBMing your friends if they have blackberrys, that uses data and not messages.

    To clarify:

    If you download Mobile IM from VZW it use SMS.

    If you download Instant Messenging from Blackberry it uses DATA.


    Make sure you get the appropriate one for your needs!
