    Clue's in the name pal.
    There's plenty of iPhone to iPhone messengers out there though.
    Check out Ping!, WhatsApp and Flow to get yourself going.

    Short answer, nope. BlackBerry (to my knowledge) has not opened up that communication platform for non-BB devices. As BLu suggested, there are iPhone/iPod to iPhone/iPod apps (that don't quite work as well in my limited experience, but they're improving), but no cross-platform apps (other than the usual AIM/ICQ/GTalk/Yahoo Messenger type apps).

    WhatsApp has a working BB beta that allows BB users to message iPhone users. It works exceptionally well. Should be out of beta any time.

    word up. I think Duvi was using it, or maybe it was Ivan Williams. Can't remember.

    I think it was his Uncle's cousin's brother, or was it his Sister's neice's nephew on his mother's side! I can't remember!

    BIS (including BBM and a blackberry.net e-mail addy) are available on certian Nokia smartphones, just to put that out there.

    When I realized the only reason I had a Blackberry was because of Messenger, and then I realized that the iPhone's SMS system resembled Messenger, and that BBM was free, and my unlimited texting makes mine "free" in a sense, I quickly jumped ship.

    SMS is so much more versatile and universal.

    WhatsApp actually uses the devices mobile number to communicate between the iPhone and a BlackBerry. It doesn't use a pin of sorts...

    So whatsapp is solid guys - It's just like bbm actually.. you can see when the message is received, you can see when they're typing, change your status, and so on - I really like it. BUT Why is it $2.99 for BBs? It's $0.99 for us iPhone lot lol..
