    BBM for Android


      Now that BBM is available for Android and IOS user's can someone verify if I am correct regarding data charges when using it.


      for example im in a unlimited BBM plan in globe, what if i change my device from BB to android and use my sim which is registered to unliBB chat..can i still use BBchat and pay for the same charges.?


      I just told my friend that he can actually use his sim and BBChat in android device but since android device usually have running applications in background(which may consume data charges) I cannot assure that he will going to pay same price as before when he use BBChat in BB phone..tama po ba na he might also have data charges in his account?
