Do all UK networks charge £5 for BBM?

Is BlackBerry data always sold as a £5 bolt-on?

Not sure if they all charge £5, but there is usually an extra charge for Blackberry Internet Services, because you use BB's own APN, while for some web services you may also use the Network's APN...
I'm on the phone myself right now, so I cannot search for all the details.
But, yes... generally, you will need some sort of add-on, be it on prepay or bill.
Noteworthy though, to mention that BB's data compression means you will use a lot less data on mail, IM and web. So the £5 may well save you some money.

FYI - Vodafone are doing free bis (which includes bbm) on their payg sims for free until the end of june. (3 months free basically if you get a sim now). Get a free sim off their site or go buy one. I couldnt be bothered to wait when they started it so I picked a sim up from the high street for a quid.
