    yes you need a SMS plan, otherwise you will get charged per message.

    Get the Media Max 200 or 1000.

    w/o a SMS plan it's $.10/message incoming or outgoing.

    That Sucks....You would think SMS would be included when paying ~$40 for the PDA Connect Unlimited option. I would have thought by now that pricing pressure from the $10 Unlimited Sprint Vision would have drove the Cingular prices downward.

    You should really look into the media max plan they are offering. The odds are that you don't need to be paying for the PDA plan. I switched last week after reading many threads about how it is not needed. I am now saving almost $30 a month and have the same features!!

    OK....I signed up with MediaMax 1000. Initially the Cingular rep says that MediaMax is NOT for Email on a PDA (PDA Connect is for this), but I insisted on getting MM1000 anyway and he complied.

    That plan died out a long time ago. Until MMax came out, the best you could do was $19.99 for unlimited media.net with no SMS included.

    I just switched to a plan with unlimited data, sms, and text for 19.99. Not sure what it was called, but as of right now I'm paying 140 a month for 3 phones, 2100 anytime nationwide, unlimited data, sms, text, and all the other crap too.

    When using the AOL software and accessing IM, does that use SMS or is it over the net?
    Thanks

    AOL software is over data. But if you want a better client, applications like VeriChat let you choose.

    I agree Verichat is pretty cool. I pay $19.99 for unlimited data, 200 sms/mms, and unlimited "cingular video". Can I actually take advantage of cingular video on the treo?
