    Most would have like it if BlackBerry had done what Apple did with iMessage... or better if Jim's idea of using BBM being a text standards upgrade.

    Yes....

    Just an old idea that's been around. Now that Emtek controls BBM and so few use it... don't see a reason for them to make the investment in it, at this point.

    Not only that, Google is finally overhauling messaging entirely.

    I think we are going to see a huge change in the next year or so; something that will resemble iMessage.

    If they do it right it will give WhatsApp, FB Messenger and others a good run for their money.

    Depends on the markets....

    Here where I'm at, text is still king... as we have unlimited texting. And for iPhone users - well over 70% I'd say, the iMessage integration is invisible.

    Other markets where texting is still fee based, messaging apps are far more popular. But you have to keep up with which app, which friends are on... and using.

    This has been suggested many times. I don't understand how we got to this mess.

    (Edit: the mess is removing useful features, not your proposal)

    Old BBM worked the way you suggest.

    In fact, if anything, iMessage is effectively old BBM done by Apple. Voice over data, sms, end to end encrypted data messaging when both parties are using an equipped end point.

    I have been begging for this for years! BBM is useless to me except for the channels!

    I sent the suggestion in for it. I was a Delta Tester for the motion and we asked for that to be added a year a go. if Facebook messenger can integrate it then BlackBerry should be able to.

    No doubt it could be done... and may have suggested it.

    But resources are clearly limited for Suite Development... maybe if BBMo sales pick up....
