And iMessages between Apple devices are free as well. Data charges might apply to a Canadian user while in the USA.

In general yes. I think it's 40 cents surcharge a text, plus taxes...

You can get plans or plan add-on's.

Are both phones Blackberries? If so, there is no charge to use BBM across borders.

You can also get a BBM app for your iPhone or Android.
