    What the heck! Why allow users to download an app and then make them wait to use it...#smh...If RIM/Blackberry wasn't prepared to handle the amount of users who plan to use BBM, whether for testing purposes or for long-term use, then they should not have released it. This is a fail, in my personal opinion.

    Just saw this, as well... RIM is desperately trying to create some buzz. (Did you see what I did there?)
    Yep this is a snip from the blog article we have on the blog side right now. If you signed up at BBM.com a while back you can start using it right away but like Fausty said with his yawn I feel the same way. It is on all the time, drains the heck out of your battery and perpetually goes around in a circle much like the 40-50 emails i got this weekend from CB people because of being on a mailing list about picture uploads. One person answers and then reanswers and it goes on and on. Not interested ...Sorry! I will stick with what I have now in native iMessage/SMS

    I'll pad their numbers by downloading it, but I doubt if I'll use it much. I don't know anybody that still had blackberries.
    Then why download it at all. I and you remember the BB days and why we are no longer and padding a number? Come on Karen it has not changed one bit from what it was a long time ago and never will be.

    Well i will not argue with you there and you are 100% correct.... Just out of curiosity did you say that about mailboxes same system of waiting? Are you going to download it and try it or just pass on it like all of us ex-BB users that remember what BBM was like and still is? This is only a question 'D, in no way a beat down question.

    Not that I recall, but "Mailbox" was a start up whereas BBM has been around for years.
    Are you going to download it and try it or just pass on it like all of us ex-BB users that remember what BBM was like and still is?
    Already downloaded it. I received a tweet alert saying that it was available to download in the App Store so I immediately downloaded it.
    This is only a question 'D, in no way a beat down question.
    I did not take it as such, and no harm done.......Take care.

    Hey, at least they updated it for iOS 7 and it's no longer using the iOS 6 keyboard styling.

    It's the granddad of all messaging apps, in my opinion. I used it a lot when I was a big time Blackberry user and working in government.

    Should be fun. I hope this till it happens correctly.

    My biggest gripe is what I assume will be the inability to be logged in with different devices simultaneously. If it works well, I'll give BBRY a pass LOL.

    I'm always downloading apps I don't end up using. I suspect this will be no different.

    They are not the first company to do this.

    I personally don't think it's a fail at all. A fail would have been releasing it to everyone and having it crash their servers.

    It's working well, I tested it with a couple of friends who have BBs. Haven't been able to test it with anyone on iOS or Android yet but it will come in time. Patience.
