    well there is ping! with which you can chat with other iphone users that have tht app, but no bb -> apple messenger

    and i believe you cannot set the push thing

    8310 ---> 8110 ---> 9000 ---> 8900 ---> 9700 ---> 9780 ---> 9800 ---> 9780

    In short, BBM is run through the BlackBerry system, and is compatible with no others.

    Might try Yahoo IM, there is a RIM version that uses push technology and can be used without ruining BlackBerry battery life, that's how I chat with my Iphone friends from my BlackBerry.

    Just use your unlimited SMS option. I think it's the best way since PUSH with certain applications are not always 100%.

    I'm just saying...

    hi thanks for the reply - I am in australia so there is no unlimited SMS option. I only ask, coz at the moment i use BB. and most of my friends (who are in USA, Singapore, around asia basically) use BB too. So msging them thru BBM is the easiest way for me. I was thinking of switching to iPhone if there was an app that could retain this function. I can modify the iphone to work with a BB plan. but seeing the iphone has no PIN - i dont think there would be a way. might be wrong though.

    thanks all

    Alternatively, when you get an iPhone, get BeeJive, and use IM (Hotmail, Yahoo, GoogleTalk, etc)...

    I don't think one should be held to a device because of a feature like Blackberry Messenger.

    Ya, it is not possible unfortunately. Using a 3rd party IM client and communicating over that will be your best bet. Just tell all your BB buddies to sign up for and use a free messenger and get yourself either beejive or ebuddy to chat with that all you want SMS free.
