I have a solution, but it's a very poor one.
Go to any other app and copy a line break and then when you are in SMS/BBM simply paste that new line into your message.
Like I said it's a very cumbersome solution, but I just tried it and it works.
Thanks D Mac
Well this is what i'm doing now .. Going to emails or reminder app and type what i want (including pressing enter to start a new line) then i copy what i wrote & paste it in SMS/BBM
But I thought someone could have an easier solution .. like a spacial way to press enter to start a new line in SMS/BBM.

I don't have a Z10 yet (just waiting on a price comparison from a rival carrier to see where I land), but has anyone tried holding down the Enter key? Sometimes funny things happen with long-presses, and I wonder if that may work?
An alternative might be to set up a word substitution (eg typing linebr could substitute for the line break). Again, just a thought from a position of no knowledge at all! (EDIT** - see Shao's post below, which explains much better how to do this!)

I tried using word substitution as Barljo & Shao128 suggested, unfortunately no luck.
When you are setting up word substitution the enter key becomes "Done", so there is no way to enter a new line. I tried my copy and paste trick but it just pastes it all in one long string with the line breaks removed.
Also previously I tried a lot of other things in SMS/BBM: checking the menus, holding Send, holding "?123" and then hitting send (this is how you do it on BBOS7 if you had Hit Enter To Send turned on) holding shift and hitting send, holding del and hitting send, pressing and swiping right, holding space and hitting send, etc, etc, etc...
So it really looks like there is no way at all aside from cutting and pasting. Hopefully this gets fixed soon.

No there is no option to turn off press enter to send.
No shift enter or ANY other combination doesn't work.
No there is no trick or option to do it (aside from cut and paste).
Until there is a software update there is no way to do it.

This is an annoying issue that I just discovered. Trying to send someone my flight details for example: Arrival: xx Flight number: xx it would look better with new lines but I couldn't figure it out. Shift-Enter (send) will only send the message. I hope someone discovers a solution

I think this is a bug that should be resolved in the next update. We need an update soon. Some other features are not handled as good as they were before such as the vibration options or convenience keys (volume up and down) within the camera app.

Lack of Carriage Return in SMS messenger
I have the same problem and for what it's worth this is my exploration of the matter:
Tried substituting ### -> [cr] : Does not work.
Tried composing text message without addressee. CR key does not change to SEND. When I hit the CR key the carriage return character is not inserted.
That experiment leads me to conclude that the current version of the SMS messenger does not support insertion of carriage return.
I can only guess that there is some solid technical reason other than lack of usability testing, why this is not so.

I was also trying to solve this irretating issue without any succes. The only thing I came up with is to write my message on either Remember App or on Memo Pad and then when I finish I select and copy all and past it then in the sms.
I wonder how BB did not notice these basic issues and rectify immediately
