    For a wifi only PlayBook, you must have a BlackBerry phone bridged to the PlayBook in order to use BBM on the PlayBook. Not sure about the 4G PlayBook since I don't have one. Native BBM is rumored to be coming with the future update to BB10 for PlayBook.

    Nope. However, with the release of BB10 for the Playbook you will be able to BBM w/ your friends.

    I read somehwere in the forum about bbid taking over the bbm contact list, and that person continued to say, if you sign in on one place, say one smartphone, if you sign in to bbid on another smartphone, you loose your bbm contacts on ur other phone cos bbid can only be logged in in one place for your contacts.... I don't know what the guy meant so my interpretation could be absolutely false....

    but is this true???and if so.. how can one be signed to native bbm on both a phone and the playbook if the above rule is the case.

    Hi Rupam, are you sure this does,nt just apply to the pb 4G/LTE model with a sim card and a data plan?

    Yes, you can, sort of... It requires you to bridge with your BlackBerry phone. Technically you're still sending messages from your phone's BBM account, but through an interface on your PlayBook. The bonus: you can also send text messages too! I have a 32G wifi PlayBook and love being able to use the SMS feature via the bridge.
