    I'm hoping people give it a try. I was just having a conversation with a friend and this is pretty much a good representation of iphone users, at least, from what i've seen. Not trolling, or talking ****, just surprised people don't even know about BBM let alone what sets it apart. Oh well, at least ex blackberry users will know about BBM and pretty much EVERYONE owned a blackberry in blackberries prime.


    me:

    bbm is out on the 22nd for you
    10:34pm
    her:


    O nice
    10:34pm

    Me:
    i'm deleting whatsapp on that day lol
    10:34pm
    Her:

    Ur the only person I know with a blackberry tho
    10:34pm
    Me:
    it's out for everyone on the 22nd so it'll be the most used i hope

    it's cross platform now.
    10:35pm

    Her:
    Meaning
    10:35pm
    Me:

    meaning it's the same old bbm but now android and ios can have it too

    so everyone can have bbm. not just blakberry people

    10:35pm
    Her:

    Ya

    But I can just text

    10:35pm
    Me:

    lol!!!!!!

    lololol
    10:36pm
    Her:
    Same thing
    10:36pm
    Me:

    oh man

    do you i message?

    or whatsapp people?
    10:36pm
    Her:
    Yea

    iMessage
    10:36pm
    Me:

    so why don't you just text instead instead of i message?

    10:36pm
    Her:

    iMessage is text

    It automatically changes as I'm texting another iPhone
    10:36pm
    Me:
    well now you'll have bbm, which is better than texting, whatsapp, imessage, email, two cans with a string between, etc
    10:36pm
    Her:

    But it's still texting
    10:37pm
    Me:

    i bet you within a few months no one will be texting anymore

    bbm is so much better than texting. it's instant. you can see if it's sent. see if they read it. it's more like a messanger like fb chat
    10:37pm
    Her:

    But text is the same as BBM


    10:37pm

    Her:

    I know only u with bb
    10:38pm
    Me:

    hard to explain cause you've never seen it. everyone had a display pic. and you can update yuour status. so you go in and see all the recent updates of peoples pics and status'. it makes you more inolved so you talk to people more. too hard to explain
    10:38pm
    Her:

    Everyone has iPhone or Samsung
    10:38pm

    Me:

    i know but bbm is out for iphone and samsung now

    so you can download it

    and everyone will

    and since it's better than texting for multiple reasons, i'm sure it's going to get used pretty much exclusively

    it's faster and easier and more convenient than texting

    it's really too hard to explain until you get to use it.
    10:39pm
    Her:

    ok..
    Ok

    Expect some of that, to many, it's just another messenger app. Not even everyone that uses BlackBerry recognizes the value of BBM. I didn't, at first, years ago. Knowledge and use cured that, though.

    She doesn't seem to understand it.

    Hopefully BlackBerry's marketing department can do something to outline the differences and advantages of BBM over texting and other messaging apps.

    If your from America people are ignorant toward blackberry and it's offerings. I'm from India and here there was a time where only blackberry ruled not long ago just 2 years back. All the people I know here are super excited for BBM but I feel Blackberry just let it's USP go cross platform that's what all my friends say "why would you use an BB anymore if I have BBM on my apple or Android phone" Hard to convince them why!!! Sad truth
