    Hey guys, i currently have a Sidekick 3 with T-Mobile and most likely upgrading to a Blackberry Curve 8320 this weekend. I just have a quick question.

    If I don't get the data plan will i be able to use Jivetalk for AIM? And if I can will it be free or will it count as sms?

    JiveTalk uses Data, not SMS.

    and if you download the new, 1.05 version, you can use it over wifi as well

    I would still recommend a data plan. I believe only 20 bucks with T-mobile.

    Doesn't the SK plan from Danger cost more than the BB unlimited data anyway?

    Not really sure, but i think the Sidekick uses the "same" type of setup. i believe the data actually goes through the Danger servers, and the BB plan goes through the RIM servers..

    The Sidekick plan is actually $20 for unlimited web/email/text/aim. The BB plan is $20 for data, but an extra $15 if you want unlimited texting (that's what T-Mobile told me).

    I'm just so tired of the sidekick, so much money for such a lack of features!

    I offered to get my son a sidekick but he wants a blackberry. You think he knows something we don't? (He's ten).
