    There are reports that it out in New Zealand, but I haven't read of any other location.
    It will be out in each and every country at 12:01 AM local time.
    So we can say the whole of Asia and Australia got it now. It started rolling out in Europe and Africa. Americas last.

    I tend to look at it as "BlackBerry still has to wait forever for me to join up...".

    Who knows... it should be announced somewhere when it does... either here, or on the blog side - or both.

    There are few bugs in it from what I've experienced so far. Display pictures don't update. Can't send messages to anyone who is actually using a blackberry just other people who got the app on iOS for the short period that it was available.

    Hopefully they launch it properly very soon.

    Yes, you cannot BBM those using the Beta BBM Channels on BlackBerry. Those on BlackBerry need to restore the official BBM instead.

    Regarding the displayed picture I don't this it's related to the iOS client. This usually happens when BlackBerry servers get overloaded. And I am sure BlackBerry itself was not expecting that much people joining and that could be the main reason they paused the roll out as they got 1.1 million new BBM users yesterday.

    I can't send messages to anyone using a blackberry, even people who aren't using a bb10 device. I could yesterday for about an hour or so, then it stopped. Every message I send to someone using a bb device just comes up with a tick beside it, no delivered notification, and that is regardless if they are using bb10 or older bb devices.

    Apparently folks with the Channels Beta can now reply and see messages from iPhone BBM users. Personally, I've been able to message BB users since I downloaded the iOS app.

    What do you mean you don't get cell service at home?


    Sent from my iPhone using iMore Forums mobile app
    I live In a rural area, and around and in my house I can't find a cell signal, if I walk 50 feet down the road I do, but not around the house.
    Sounds like my house and Sprint. People gave up calling me and just SMSed me asking me to call them since the calls never went through.

    Lived in an apt once and had the same problem when I bought my townhouse the first thing I did when I checked it out with the reality was close myself in the hall closet and had my ex- wife call me just to make sure I had signal from sprint

    Nope, not even giving it a second thought either. I don't know one single user of Blackberry so I cannot think of a reason to use the app.

    It's cross platform. You don't need someone on BlackBerry to try it. You can just download it, ask some few friends on iOS or Android to get it too and give it a shot for few hours maybe you would like it more than WhatsApp. (at least it doesn't have the Last Seen feature, it instead tells you when the user actually read your message)

    Thanks, I didn't know that. But that brings up another point - why use another app to message with people when 95% of my friends and family already use iOS which with iMessage already shows if the message was delivered, read, or the person is typing.

    Well, yes. If all your family and friends are on IOS, then that's a whole different case and iMessage should be enough. Unless you need to use BBM Groups to chat, and share pictures, calendar events and To-Do list. Also maybe you would want to give it a try later when BBM Voice is introduced also BBM Channels. I am sure you will like BBM Channels when introduced because simply it is a brand new innovative feature that you can never find it in any other IM.

    Well said

    I always heard about BBM and I want to try it. I don't know anyone that uses it but I will strong arm some friends into paying me to download this Free app so we can try it. Never know it might catch on
