Will BBM on bb10 be compatible with older bb devices?
Hello crackberry world,
This is my first post although I do come on here alot to read the latest and greatest news from the crackberry team and just can't wait to get my hands on my bb10 phone. There is just something that has been playing on mind for sometime now and to be honest I was expecting it to be mentioned by either crackberry or by BlackBerry themselves but just hasn't come up yet. As bb10 is a completely new OS will I still be able to add friends/relatives who have older BlackBerry devices by pin to my BBM as they will have a different OS?
Thanks crackberry nation......and loving the hair btw@kevin

As soon as you have the chance please update your profile to include your device, carrier, and location. This makes it easier for others to assist you.
I can also confirm it works. I have 2 contacts on BBM from their Dev Alphas. And it is separate as I still have their separate, original BBM contact too.
BBM Groups is also fully functional. Those 2 contacts are also in a BBM Group with me.

It only works on certain carriers which have been setup to support it. My carrier (Bell) has already been setup.

it sure works. Tested this afternoon. It's ... great !
Also some examples of "collaboration" with "old" devices :
My alpha gets wifi access oudoor on behalf of my 9900 hotspot. Also Balize made a demo for BT file transfer ... just wait for bridge to drop and you'll dance on your seat
