    I know this has probably been beaten to death, but I would like some clarification. I have been getting 2 stories from Cingular regarding Instant Messaging. 1 person told me that each message counts as a text message and falls within my text messaging plan. Another person told me that Verichat uses my internet connection (unlimited MediaNet) and that it does NOT count towards my SMS plan.

    Anyone with some CONCRETE proof?

    I am using a GSM treo 650 on Cingular's network. I have a 200 text message per month plan and unlimited net.

    Thanks!

    it depends if you are using the sms mode of verichat of not. If you use the sms mode it DOES use your txt message limit. If you don't use sms mode it DOESN't use your sms it uses DATA.

    One important question - how do you switch from SMS to data? Thanks.

    In the Verichat preferences, "always on" tab, "use data connection".

    I posted this in another post, but I wanted to clarify here too. SMS is only used for the Always On option. Once you connect to someone and start chatting with them, it uses your data connection. Verichat is not a program that uses SMS for EVERY message you receive, only for Always On (for instance, if your Treo is sleep, or you are in another application). I figure that if you have a decent text messaging plan, this shouldn't be an issue.
