I think initially businesses would flock to BBM Voice chat before consumers will.

I'd rather they just get Viber on board..at least then you have a cross platform app that works flawlessly and isn't restricted to one platform."Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all." -Sam Ewing

Still don't understand, I can run viber off 3G why can't I do it for BBM voice... Still, no complaints cause I don't use bbm much outside of work or home...
Now for the ultimate challenge, see if BGR makes some UNBIASED content on it and not a bashing one.Thanks For Reading My Post

Just last week I had three BBM contacts. One bought an iCrap device, a second was using a very outdated 8530 that would always render the spinning clock being stuck on OS 5 and jumped to Android, the third I contact who still remains on BBM, I seldom talk to.Gun Control: For those willing to rest their life on the conscience of a criminal.

personally bbm voice is a godsend for me. now i can voice chat for free with all my bbm contacts (40+) across canada, the U.S. and the caribbean. i'm living in vancouver at the moment and can speak with my family and friends in toronto, winnipeg and my consultant friends who travel throughout the U.S. and Canada on a weekly basis. i can also easily speak to my family in trinidad & tobago (BBs are popular there) without using another service or being in front of a computer. i doubt my use case is unique, so i don't get why so many are being negative about this or comparing to the likes of skype/viber/tango etc. from my perspective a free service with considerable penetration just got a new and useful feature that millions will take advantage of on a daily basis yet some people think just because they don't benefit (right now) it isn't newsworthy. i get the lukewarm reception from those of you who have little to no bbm contacts but that doesn't change the fact that something is free just got better. maybe in a few months you'll have a handful of bb10 adoptees that you can chat with so stop being cynical. the only people who should be upset about this are the carriers as many, including myself, will be cancelling our long-distance plans in light of bbm7. sorry rogers, that $10/month will stay in my pocket.

BBM voice call gets tech bloggers' attention
about getting BBM voice over mobile network.... that's called a phone call. These smart devices are phones. Why would any provider OK a system that would allow free calls over THEIR networks? Even surprised that carriers are okay with a free way to talk to folks without going through their networks by using wifi.
