It's BBM is free and uses the data plan that you already pay for instead of txts that you would have to get a separate plan for. So if you have a lot of friends with BBs than it's great but if not I can see why you would not care for BBM. But you are right it is basically the same thing as txting someone

Its a nice feature. Me and the wife both have BB and dont want to pay for unlimited text plan. We us messenger to chat while we are both at work plus i use it to send quick pics of are 7 month old baby boy when shes havin a bad day at work and needs some cheering up. Thats the part the wife loves the most out of the messenger.
in my experience being able to see when a message is sent/checked is awesome
i also like the fact that someone can send a pic and i can view it w/o actually having to dl it to my phone
also since its only bb people the convo is that much better
