    ahh so im new to blackberry and i have a lot of questions

    does blackberry messenger use the text messages allowed in a month?

    say if i have 5000 out of network im allowed to use, would blackberry messenger use those if i have friends outside of verizon on a blackberry?

    and if i have a friend on verizon with a blackberry, it would count towards my unlimited verizon texts ?

    i basically just want to know if bbm is based on ur texts or if its just part of the data plan

    BB Messenger uses the data plan, not the texts plan. If you have an unlimited data plan, use it as much as you like. It also works on ANY blackberry, regardless of carrier. Again - it does not use text.

    Yes, that should be the unlimited plan. You should be able to BBM your heart out....

    Bbm uses data not texting so as long as you have a data plan you're good to go with messenger.

    You are correct. The $30 plan is for users who are using corporate email. All corporate email users need the $45 dollar plan. Sounds like you are good to go!

    You have the right plan. Message all you like to, get your monies worth.

    As long as you have a data plan, you can use bbm all you want.
