    ok so i have gotten about 1/4 of my bbm contacts sending me this BBM message:

    "This message is to inform all of our users, that our servers have recently been
    really full, so we are asking for your help to fix this problem. We need our
    active users to re-send this message to everyone on your contact list in order
    to confirm our active users that use BlackBerry Messenger, if you do not send
    this message to all your BlackBerry Messenger contacts then your account will
    remain inactive with the consequence of losing all your contacts
    Symbol will automatic update in your  ,when you broadcast this message. Your
    blackberry will be updated within 24 hours it will have a new lay out and a new
    color for chat
    ‎​Dear Blackberry users,
    We are going to do a update for bbm from
    11pm till 5am this to day. You if you don't send this to all your contacts your
    update will be cancelled and you would not be alowed to chat with your contacts
    as you have the old version."

    please let me know if this is real or if it is a joke like the last time i have been trying to search for an answer so please link me to the thread if it has already been answered

    here is my response

    "Ok why would RIM tell everyone to mass BBM a message to all their contacts if there server is really full? Sending out this message would even further slow down their servers. Now RIM isn't that stupid"

    and at least now all but 5 contacts have sent this to me. Haha well thanks for your help i almost fell for this

    I get these about once a week. ITS FAKE. Why would RIM shutdown one of the best features of the blackberry? And honestly, if you had myspace when it was supposedly the best website on earth, you probably got this message 50 million times. People make up this hoax about every social networking site, instant messaging client, & so on everyday. I wouldn't be surprised if someone sent me something like this about Facebook tomorrow. Don't believe everything you hear. If its not directly coming frm RIM then its not true.
