    Talk uses data just like ping and bbm. It is mostly instant.

    There are also several multiple IM clients available for Android (eBuddy, Fring, Meebo, Trillian are the ones I can think of off-hand). All use data, though of course, it requires that people be on the respective network.

    Never for BMM. A device has to have a BB PIN and access to the BB APN (to access RIM's network) for BMM.

    I don't see RIM opening up something that its users have turned into a selling point (given all the BBM inquiries) for the BB either...
