I got mobile im and and i also got unlimited messages. Do i get charged data or airtime minutes for using it or am i covered fully if i have unlimited text and dont have to worry about any  other charges? IF so why does the icon data session appear when i use Mobile Im


Each IM sent/recevied does count as one text. So you are covered there. When signing in/out of IM you will use air time minutes yes. Actually when you see that little tinny phone on the top your screen that is when you are using air time minutes.



BUT, that data is covered under the usage terms. you should never see data usage from things like mobile IM or pix messaging, UNLESS you DO NOT have an unlimited messaging plan.
