    I know in the past, if you have 2 PlayBooks with the same BBID, you could not video chat between the two devices.

    Has this been corrected with the current 2.1 OS?

    I was looking for an answer for a similar but not exactly same problem. I'm pretty sure someone said you could. From memory I think you had to add yourself as a contact in the video chat contacts so I would dig a little deeper if I was you.

    The wife is going to Germany next month and I have a PlayBook still in the box that I would like to set up to video chat with this one. I was just going to set up a BBM ACCOUNT for her to use it. I would rather leave it generic so I can let my grandsons or others us it also.
    What, if any, are my options?

    What I did is open an outlook email account called family generic something or other and set a bbid up using that mail account. That way it's just a generic device that you can all use.

    Don't forget if you pass it off to a new user you can security wipe it and when setting it up for them, create a new account again.

    Thanks but it is easier just to make it generic so I can pass it around without fooling with it.
    Good to say that here though, might be exactly what someone else needs.
