    My BBM contacts list has shrunk, but not by much. Yeah, still use it every day.

    Every single day and lots of messages. Messages to wife and kids, messages to co-workers with our personal Blackberry (we don't get work issued ones), messages with vendors. My wife uses it to communicate with her family in the US, and friends and family back in South Africa all the time too. I do very little SMS txt'ing. When traveling internationally for work it is the cheapest, most efficient and reliable way to communicate.

    my BBM list is 1/3rd of what it was at it's heyday and about 70% are outside the USA - that's probably 20% higher than it was as well. 80% are business contracts - used to be 50/50. I use it for business just about every day. Personal not near as much.

    Half and half. Needed to install WhatsApp to be able to text people that have moved on to other devices. I use it for work mostly these days, and WhatsApp for everything else.

    Everyone I know that is buying a personal phone is not buying a BB...sign of the times, I guess.

    I use BBM more so than email which would be my second most accessed item on a smartphone.

    My BBM list demographic has changed, in 2009 it was half full of North American women, ages 22-27, 40% business men 30-50yrs, and 10% international/family. now I'd say it is about 20% women aged 25-35, and 50% business men age 25-55, then family and mixmatch make up the remainder most from non north American markets.

    Over all the global BBM subscriber base hasn't declined according to RIM pressreleases,

    I have one active group of 4 members. Otherwise most of my contacts are gone.

    I'd have likely been gone, but one of our members refuses to get a dataplan for his phone, so he's tied exclusively to using BBM, so, the group of us hockey buddies are all stuck with him.

    No change really. Actually I've gained a few BBM contacts for the few I've lost.

    I used to have great BBM groups which served to plan and execute events, one year later, 80% of them have defected or upgraded to non BlackBerry devices and now we have a gimped Whatsapp group where we have entertaining but idle conversation.

    So basically what you're saying is that you've lost your game

    As far as the number of my BBM contacts go (or rather, once I get my new 9930 running)...it's QUALITY over QUANTITY!

    Exactly, you hit the nail on the head, it's not about how many contacts you have, it about who you have.

    I use mine more and more. I probably use it far too much

    If it wasn't for BBM, I probably would never have switched back.

    I'm down to just family. I used to have a bunch of techy-geeky contacts via the forums, but it's impossible to find 'real' people there now since the forum is flooded with get-a-lifers looking for sec buddies.
    Why is it that when your contract commitment is up, the phone you always wanted is now old and the phone you now want won't be out until the next quarter? - Checkout Planet Loser on Channel C003DAB77

    Yeah I still use BBM, every single day. It's one of the most used apps on my phone. My contact list has gone from 140 to about 110-115 those people have moved on to other devices and we just text. Most of the people I talk to regularly are still on BBM.

    I have no more contacts on BBM. Sad, really, because I think it's a great messaging tool.
