    I and my partner, each have the BlackBerry Classic, she was having lunch today at the mall with her sister... I made a BBM Video call to her, while we were chatting, a stranger came up to her and asked what kind of phone she had, my partner told her it was a BlackBerry Classic with a video call feature through BBM... stranger said she was going to check into it more... BlackBerry still impresses... cool!!!

    BBM is pioneer in Messaging system and far beyond any other apps they just need marketing

    You can do that with BBM too.
    I've done it.

    And the screen sharing feature in BBM video is an awesome tool to show people how to do things on the phone.

    I couldn't disagree more. But I seem to have it out for Skype. I'm not sure why, but the disdain runs strong.

    If you're using screen sharing, the video keeps playing

    Ah, you mean skype still shows the video call stream while in other apps?

    I like BBM video a lot. I wish BlackBerry would hurry up and release it for the priv. I didn't use it a lot but it was nice to use when my kids are with their mother for extended periods. BBM calling is slick too when you don't have good cell signal. I actually use that more

    I wish I could video chat across platforms as I have family with BBM on Android and iOS devices and I can't video chat with them from my BBM on Classic.

    The codec they use for Skype is ancient and terrible...

    I used to call my kid on her iPad before I got a second phone for them. When they were little it was OK to make them share but when teenage hit the phone sharing didn't work so well lol
