Hey everyone, I just joined at&t and have a Samsung Propel phone. I am under a family plan that has the "Messaging Unlimited for Families" feature added.
Two days ago I used the IM AIM program that is built into my phone. The next day I looked online and saw I was charged data for using it, even thought I thought it was free under my feature ($3 worth!). I stopped in a store yesterday and they said as long as you use the AIM built in the phone it should be free. Thinking something else strange might have happened I used AIM again last night. I did not send or received IMs just was available. I would only recieve some notifications if someone came online. I looked this morning and again I was charged, and the times fit when I was logged on. On the Account Overview it shows this:

What is going on here?
Thanks for any help!!

Just wanted to update that I DID get charged on my bill data for using IM. I never went online or used the mobile email feature so know what I was charged was purely from IM. I went to a store yesterday and the guy said you are charged for connecting and refreshing but not for the IM messages themselves. He credited us the $20 of data I was charged and when we asked that even though we should get unlimited IM for free, it actually isn't because we have to pay, the salesperson shrugged.
I know someone who was on a plan with someone that used the IM feature and was never charged, is this issue specific to the Propel?

is there a time limit as to how long you can stay logged on either with IM or Windows Live?
