    Default will bbm ever allow sending more than 1 picture at a time?

    i find it very tedious to send multiple photos to a bbm contact... it should allow multiple attachments... and the receiver should have the ability to request HQ on the whole group of attachments if they want... having to send pictures 1 at a time is terrible...

    Yea its not like their innovating the idea. All they have to do is look at the competition and implement those features in BBM.

    Funny I wondered what the hell was the matter with my Bbm. This morning I was sending my wife the kids first day of school pictures. Maybe we will get this in 10.3

    Finally made bigger file sizes so maybe multi selection will be next. I wish I could send a hq and then the recipient would have option to not take it. This going back to ask them to resend is a bit of a pain too. I guess in their defense I don't often need the hq as we are just sending snapshots

    I couldn't agree more. We use it at work with all the employees. It's a major pain. Also I don't understand why when you hit the drop down box in the call log, it gives you the option to text the person but not BBM them?? What the hell. BBM should have been BlackBerry first thought

    The issue isn't' that they don't send full files on first go, the issue is that the files send are so woefully compressed that the pictures are worthless in a majority of cases (at for me). Really, their take on photo sharing is pretty much an embarrassment these days. The workflow if fundamentally broken with the way [the vast majority of] people use devices these days and how people expect messaging apps to function. It takes too much work (on both ends) to share a decent photo.

    WhatsApp compresses photos, too, but they're at least decent resolution/quality on the receiving end, while the default on BBM is anything but that.

    BBM is a very difficult product to get people to start using, if they didn't "grow up" using classic 'berries. I even have difficulties persuading my corporate chums, who carry work-issue blackberries, to use it! It seems everyone gets by with regular old SMS/MMS. Even THAT allows multiple-select / send of images (albeit with much bigger restrictions to file-size).

    I've been complaining about this to the beta team for over a year now. It sucks when sending to a contact or group or even channel.

    This is why most people will use whatsapp. And I can't say no when they ask for multiple pictures because bbm can't do it.

    I can send more than 1 pic at a time on the 10.6 beta version of bbm. Looks like we will get this when it is released to the public.

    They're going to add this feature right after they make it easy to post a picture in a group chat!

    They also need to make a way to view all sent files (be it photos or videos ettc) from a specific contact. In whatsapp you can tap the contacts name and it shows all the shared media under contact details.

    In bbm when you tap contact name it could have a 'Media' tab next to the "details", "feeds" and "apps" tabs. Its such a quicker way of finding specific media from your phone.

    I want two more features from BBM: more than 1 emoticon and a way to see all media transferred.

    THEN.. and only then i will be satisfied with BBM and can happily promote to my friends

    Does that mean they're working on picture sending in groups easier!?!
