    Hi all. I'm new to this site and to Blackberries. I just got my Curve about 2 1/2 weeks ago.

    I have a question. Is internet access necessary to use the Blackberry Messanger feature? Also, does it count as an SMS text message?

    Welcome. Great device choice. You need a data plan to use blackberry messenger, thus it doesn't count as text.

    Define data plan. What if I get the [email protected] feature from T-mobile? Does that count as a data plan, or is it just an internet thing or phone thing?

    I dont know about the hotspot thing.

    A data plan includes email access, web, and blackberry messenger.

    Would I be able to use blackberry messenger with just internet access or would I need the whole 3-course meal?

    I know these are really simple questions. I've never used cell phones for anything else other than phone calls. I just started texting about 2 years ago.

    I have to admit I am a new BB user and I am hooked. I held out for the 8310 from AT&T and now I can't put it down. Got all new ringtones and themes within the first few hours of owning it! Sites like this are such a great place to learn the tips and tricks that aren't in the manual!
