Do BBM and email use data on the network side of things?

I'm confused! Since BBM and email use BlackBerry servers - do they count as part of your data use? Or are they simply on/off?

BB services count as part of your data.

BB server is not required for using BlackBerry. BB server offers BBM, BB email and BB browsing. If you don't need any of those (GMail client for email, WhatApp for messaging, third party browser) there is no need for BB server.
Since all BB services work over data connection you need to have data plan. That does not mean that some providers do not offer BB services without data charges.
