    It's not even out yet, and knowing BB it will be a stripped down version.

    Last month when I still had a BlackBerry I only had one acquaintance on BBM. I didn't use it when I had a BB, why should I use it when I don't ?

    Fixed that for you to make it more accurate.

    I use Voxer. It's just like talking on the phone almost. Wife and I have it on our iPads and I have it on my One. My adult children have it on whatever they are using at the time. Last time I checked, like most things it wasn't available on BB. And BBM is not a cross platform messaging app. At least not yet.

    That's funny ... You don't see any need for two different services ...that's because you did not know what BBM capacities are.

    In short, BBM is the most efficient instant messaging platform including group chat (that you should know), voice conversation, and now video conversation (newbies on OS10) all that with various integrated features (easy file transfer, screen sharing....) all that at no communication charges.
    Its like merging iMessage, FaceTime apps + adding group chat, voice conversation, ++ extra features all seamlessly integrated within the same apps ...and definitively more stable then any other cross platform app.
    Think about it, you will now only have one message services to serve all your needs and more.

    So... Does BBM work like iMessage in that other people don't have to have it and it'll default to SMS? If so I'll probably use it, never tried it but it looks nice and people seem to love it. If not, and I can only communicate w/ people who have BBM then I won't have much use for it.

    ​It doesn't work that way on the BBs so I doubt it works that way over cross platform messaging.

    Wow you're so clever!...this thread is pointless. Like asking BB users if they'd use iMessage if it were cross platform. Some will some won't. If you can't look at stuff objectively these barbs at BB are childish.

    Do you mean like the way some blackberry fans are now trolling the iPhone boards and spewing their venom?

    However, I do agree that the constant picking and trolling are childish...

    I still own a BlackBerry. And I know of a lot of old BlackBerry people that are dying to try it out. They know the security crap that goes along with most 3rd party apps. Security is the 1 place where BlackBerry is not lacking in.

    Personally i have no call for it at all because i have no contacts on BBM so it wouldn't need to use it at all really.

    I will try it always like to try new apps. It will depend how good it is, battery drain, etc whether I will keep using it. It will also depend what kind of features they put in like if it works with SMS, etc. If it's just yet another app I don't think it will last long on my devices.

    Probably, some of my friends are still on BlackBerry and I do plan on getting a Z10 to play around with.

    I would like to know if you guys are going to be using BBM now that it is going cross-platform.
    I realize this may not be the most accurate place to post this thread, however, I thought that this would be the best place to put it to get results.
    Thanks.

    ahhhhhdangnabbitted luck......I only say this today.

    OK, I'm from CB too. And YES, I will DEFINITELY use it. Right now I've got one single contact who will not use WhatsApp on his BlackBerry so I'm forced to carry my BlackBerry. If I had BBM on my iPhone and my SGIII I could carry one device when I've got a craving to use a device other than a BlackBerry. It will be very convenient for the sake of effortless switching back and forth.
