    If I downloaded those programs onto my phone and use them are they using text messenging or data? I prefer to use them this way, they are like the real thing versus accessing them via the brower on phone.

    Yes, I do. Verizon makes a data plan mandatory (and by data plan I am assuming you mean unlimited internet etc)!!! So since I am new and don't any surprises when I get my bill. Since it uses data there will be no additional charges. Also, how can you tell is something uses text or data plan?

    oh i take that back. Well you can tell if its data when you see your friends' icons and their away messages. I have jive talk (beejive) and its totally awesome. It lets you sign in yahoo, gmail, and aim accounts and even lets you sign in more than 3 aim sns! Yep, all at the same time. Totally worth your money!
