I have the 450minutes and 5000 nights and weekend plan plus the Blackberry unlimited data plan. Is my SMS and MMS free? Can someone tell me exactly what's not free under this plan or what I have?
Many thanks in advance.

Neither would be free. The data usage for sending MMS would be included into a messaging plan, but as you only have a Voice Plan and a Data feature/plan and nothing as far as a messaging plan, neither SMS nor MMS will be included.
The difference between SMS and MMS is the data used to send them. For instance, SMS is just text, under 160 characters generally, with no additional items beyond the text. MMS would be sending a video/picture/audio clip/song/etc. They would require an internet connection and some data usage to send/receive them. MMS can be a combination of the above mentioned items with or without text added to it.
(Please note, adding a Read Receipt/Delivery Confirmation to SMS will convert them to MMS as well.)
