    Default Girlfriend and I going back to Whatsapp

    She has an iPhone. I have the z10. And as much as Kanye's line matches our life so perfectly, I just can't keep her on bbm. The app is excruciatingly slow on her iPhone 4s. Plus, when we get inappropriate in our messages, it's a real bummer to have to "request high quality" picture every time. And then we can't send videos either.

    I have 103 bbm contacts. But until usability and functionality is improved on bbm, both the cross OS version and the native, I'm afraid the recent pump up won't last.

    We're just one example. But I wonder how many others are in a similar situation..

    Facing exactly the same. With GF and most other iOS BBM friends that I converted. Shame.

    I know requesting high quality porno shots of your girlfriend can be difficult (trust me, I've asked her) but you can send videos, and the next update is going to bring many more features, you will come back.

    Lol. You know how I feel then! It's hard enough as it is, and then bbm has to add another layer to go through!

    I hope we'll be back to bbm. I still use the **** out of it don't get me wrong, I just wish it had more functionality.

    Sounds like she wears the pants. Man up and let her know how you will be communicating.

    So why not leave for Whatsapp already? Why come here to post that you and your honey dew have decided to go back? Maybe you want followers? Whatsapp messages are saved on a server in which I can purchase. Do you want me looking at your honey dew?

    Lol people need to stop being so angry about this.

    The man has a legitimate concern, and it's something the bbm team should be paying attention to. I wouldn't leave for what's app cuz of lower quality images, but the concern about these issues is fair.

    Maybe because he owns a bb and would prefer to use bbm IF. Seems IF is taking a long time to come just like everything else that is from them.

    Your concerns are legitimate.

    I tried converting some of my Whatsapp groups to BBM, but BBM just didn't have the same usability as Whatsapp.

    And I'm on BB10.

    BBM on BB10 is severely lacking in a few areas.

    For one, can I please get a "Mark as Unread" in the HUB?

    I'm trying to have a conversation about it. That's what forms are for.

    Also... Brah, have you seen the internet? Selfies are everywhere. Hope you enjoy em though! Lol.

    It's more than just media transfer. It's a bunch of little usability things that need to be addressed if they're to compete.

    Maybe because he/we would like someone from BlackBerry to take notice and try to improve the Bbm experience. We want to use Bbm and we want it to be the best it can be. requesting higher res pics is a bummer indeed.

    The new Video Shrinker app helps with that lol. You can take a 400 mb video and easily take it down to under 6 mb, then send away lol. Quality isn't that bad either actually

    The OP should post a sample photo so the forum members can decide if it is worth a HD pic or leaving BBM.

    Luckily my girl has a Z10 so we have no issues but I understand the OP. If I had the same problems with her that I have with other cross platform friends of mine then we'd definitely be using whatsapp as well. Hopefully these issues are sorted out in the next major bbm update

    Yes, we need to study the facts before we render any judgements on the matter...
    Don't make us hack into Whats app DB to find the picks, that would put us in a bad mood and you'd lose impartiality.

    BBM should have an option to send low or HD pics/vids. I converted my wife to BBM on her iPhone. She loves it. And as soon as the Z30 drops in my stocking on Christmas morning, she'll be on my Z10 and start the real BBM experience!

    You can't send videos on BBM for IOS period. You can on Android, but for some reason not IOS
