    If you only want BBM, buy the $10 US Data Pass and you'll only pay $1/MB. As long as you're not sending attachments, you can pretty much BBM to your hearts content for minimal charges. Browsing and what not will add up though; if you want to do that you may want to consider unlocking your phone and getting a prepaid US plan. Here is a good thread if you want to explore that option:

    I personally just pay the roaming fees and try to limit my usage. $1/MB is not that bad, especially with how BlackBerry's compress data.
