    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.
    Quite happy with Viber.

    Let's just say BlackBerry is playing "cut the rope" as a whole.........

    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.

    Maybe I'll use it, but I'm not sure how it will benefit me. I don't have many BB using friends.

    If you get everyone on iPhone, android, BB to us it, that would work.

    I have BB for 8 years and BBM is the best messaging app. I will be using it for sure.

    For the sake of the company, I hope everyone uses it. Otherwise, BlackBerry's about done. This BBM cross-platform thing could be brilliant if its accepted well by users.

    That's in the eye of the beholder. I hated BBM when I had my BBs.

    I'll use it for sure. If they make the cross platform version as fully featured as the one on BB10, it has the potential to be THE cross platform communication client. The question is whether I'll be using it on a BlackBerry branded device

    The newer version of BBM is great. Made a lot of changes.

    My only concern is that it may be a huge battery drain. iMessage doesn't kill your battery cause its built-in and runs when it needs to. Most 3rd party messaging apps constantly run in the background and kill your battery life. I'm hoping Blackberry can do it without killing battery, but they can't even make quality software for their own hardware, so...

    I don't see the point. I don't know anyone with a BlackBerry, and it's not worth installing BBM and hoping my friends with Android install BBM to message them.

    BBM... Not my cup of tea any more.Don't have a BB and I am quite pleased with iMessage and my iPhone. THis platform works just fine for me even with the occasional SSM that gets sent.

    I am sure others will feel different, try it for a time and eventually stick with what makes iPhone and iPhone.

    From my BB days I don't ever see that not happening not having the battery run down. We complain many do about iPhone battery life, When BBM constantly runs there is no way the battery will not run down. As previously stated, I will stick with what I have as I am quite pleased.

    It is really looking good Alli not meaning to change to subject matter but sometimes you just have to change the topic and pay a compliment when deserved, This is one of them.

    Part of me wants to for nostalgia.
    But I don't see a good reason too.

    Had RIM done this 3 years ago, this would be a very different discussion.
    But they didn't. So now their announcement seems to be met with indifference.

    I will. I can't wait actually. It's a great product. And really does a great job.

    I just wonder what they will do different across platforms.

    My wife's cousin had chemo, and lost all his straight hair. When it grew back in, it was thicker, and real curly. Something about the hair follicles getting fried. Anyway, it looks good.
