    Requesting HD picture used to retrieve the photo in its original size. Now it is retrieving a compressed version. What happened?

    That's a damn good question! It appears they're now sending "HD" at 10% of actual size.

    Right, about 10%. If this is what they are going to do, I'll be looking to use something else.

    That is what they're doing. It's garbage. The pictures I take are at 4032x3024 but when they're received the resolution drops to 960x1280.

    it's a shame. One of the reasons my wife agreed to still use it is because it's one of the few (only?) messenger that allowed us to share full-res photo's. BBM is becoming a harder and harder sell. I'm looking into alternatives now. We also make use of the BBM Group shared Calendar and shared Lists. If I can get that all somewhere else, I'm dumping BBM. Let me know if anyone here has any suggestions.

    I will take this opportunity to shill for Signal.

    Works as iMessage does (sends internet messages to other users, but you can send text messages to non users).

    IS the encryption standard.

    And while it doesn't have as many features as other Messengers, it has enough, and they're all useful and simple to use.

    Open source, so you can actually check the encryption algorythm yourself.

    It's the encryption that telegram is supposed to be based on.

    And I just like it better. :P

    But it's up to you.

    Both seem pretty good it just seems like a lot of work to get people to switch to another messaging app. But I'd rather use either of those than Whatsapp. Majority rules, sadly.

    Do either of them send full-res photos?

    That's a handsome question. I've downloaded both but haven't had the chance to try either since I don't know anyone using Signal and only 2 of my contacts use Telegram but both are work colleagues and not very close friends.

    Same issue on my end, was the reason I walked away from BBM.

    Another vote for Signal Private Messenger. Haven't looked back since switching.

    I tried to look for a version of signal working for BB10, but I did not find any. Do you know which version is compatible /working?

    According to this Beta update today, pictures and videos automatically now come in HD rather then having to request.

    So this could be good, I'd be curious to know what "HD" is because we haven't had HD for a while, request or no request.
