    it is basicly a im program that is limited to Blackberry. It does not use txt messages just data.

    and to add: you send messages similar to an IM, you need the other person's PIN to communicate with them

    Correct, It will even show "Joe Somebody is typing a message....." at the top of an open conversation. It rocks if you know people that have BB.

    I use both bbm and text. They are basically the same for me due to unlimited texting.

    You can also send media files and your gps location. I have 10 personal friends and the CBT in a separate group.

    i prefer bbm mostly due to status updates, and unlimited characters, instant confirmation of delivery and read EVEN WITH OTHER CARRIERS (which i hate texting non-vzw because it takes so long between responses). also the media sharing is fun, kickass symbols in my name, its like having myspace, but only other berry users.

    i have 28 friends and i talk to 10. PIN sharing can get scary after awhile. be picky who you give your info out to...

    also, you can exchange pins and NOT phone numbers. and if anything happens, just delete the contact. no possible way of contacting you again, if you keep rejecting there pin requests.

    I only have a few contacts on BBM...my wife and a couple co-workers. It's great because we get to send simple messages and pictures without using SMS/MMS.

    I also use Google Talk to keep up with the non BB users.
