Question about Go Phone & IM's

I have a Gophone that has the IM features built into the phone (Windows Live, Yahoo and AIM) and I also have the $19.99 unlimited texting package which claims to include IM's as well . I'm from New Jersey and I know AT&T charges us additional to send regular texts out of country but  I am just wondering if I use my Windows Live IM and IM someone in Canada who also has the Window's Live IM on his phone and he replies from his phone, if I will be charged extra for this or if it's considered part of the unlimited texting/IM package deal??

Because it's going through an IM service, ATT has no idea where the other party is located so all IM's are treated as domestic.
