    My bbm video option only works when I'm video calllinganither contact who has the bbm app on their iPhone. It is not working with those contacts who are using BBM through an Z10 or Q10 - this is not making any sense cause amongst themselves they are able to... Is there something I am doing wrong?

    It's actually quite simple:

    BlackBerry 10 smartphones are able to start BBM Video Chats to other BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
    BBM Video Chat between BlackBerry 10 and Android / iOS devices is not supported and will provide the option for BBM Voice Chat.

    Android OS and iOS devices are able to start BBM Video Chats between other Android OS and iOS devices.
    When a BBM Video Chat is started on an Android or iOS device to BlackBerry 10 smartphones, the call will change to a BBM Voice Chat.

    That makes absolutely no sense! I thought they finally would have a cross platform video chat but they're leaving out BlackBerry's.

    Well, they aren't really leaving them out, as they offer Android phones nowadays. I guess it makes sense business wise, as only few people would make use of such functionality.

    No you can also do BBM voice & video call if you are on 3G or 4G.

    Compared to total Blackberry customers it is quite a bit more than a few. Blackberry cant claim to be Android now as if they really enjoy 80+% market share. They are still damn near nothing in the grand scheme of things and should be listening to their customers. Return customers are easier than new....

    I wonder if there are more BBM users on BB10 devices or on Android/iOS combined.
    Their 'return' customers might just be 'returning' to the Priv and DTEK50.
    I hope this doesn't make us BB10 users second-class citizens on BBM lol.
