So i just got a 450min select plan. the one with unlimited texts. Now i have spent over an hour now reading about mobile im and im still not sure if i get charged for data. I have even found this http://community.vzw.com/vrzn/board/message?board.id=Messaging&message.id=2019  But so many people say you do and sooo many people say you don't that i am still unsure.

Bet you didn't find these:

Here's good thread with a discussion of Mobile IM.

Also, here's Verizon's FAQ about Mobile IM where the first 4 topics refer specifically to your question.

 

So to sum it all up. You do not get charged MBs for the use of Mobile IM. You only get charged MBs for the initial download of Mobile IM. All messages sent/received, updates to buddylists/groups, logging in/out are counted as messages, not megabytes.

 

 

Here is another thread where this was confirmed.

I just purchased the BlackBerry Tour and I'm new to IM. My question is does the cell numbers show up on your bill for who you IM? Is it like a cell call? Just wondering? thank U

IM details will not show up on the bill at all, and they will not show up online.
