    I'm on the latest bbm release on a Z10 yet I don't get the talk icon... unless I'm mistaken shouldn't it always appear, just be grayed out if my contact doesn't have the feature?

    If your contact doesnt have BlackBerry 10 or bbm 2.0 in their iphone or android its not possible

    And in some cases if your contact lives in some countries such as uae suadi arabia where bbm voice is blcked

    I also don't seem to have the new emoticons. Judging from the lack of one for BlackBerry spark symbol...

    I'm in the USA as are my few BlackBerry contacts. One is on ios and I had him upgrade to bbm 2 today. I'm on Verizon
    Z10STL100-4/10.2.1.1925

    I believe the previous version if bbm on my phone was from the beta zone. Wanted to delete it and reload but I don't think it able to be deleted...

    For voice to work in bbm iphone bbm app must be running on the background otherwise it wont work
    Unlike messages

    Few people mentioned these problem earlier

    talk to your frined and ask him/her to keep bbm open and then try to call

    If your contact is in uae you cant make voice or video call at all since TRA has blocked that feature

    Now I understand. I thought it was a software problem.

    Why would they do that ? Skype does have any issues of being block

    Skype not blocked. I have use it with someone in the UAE.

    I think carrier there do not know BlackBerry can make voice and video calls as when my friend call his carrier, the operator didn't know that we can do these things now on BlackBerry.

    It's a security issue. The government can't spy on your blackberry while on BBM while they can on Skype. This happened a few years back where governments started blocking BlackBerry because the servers were secure and they couldn't access them.

    There is no splat/spark symbol in the new emoticons.
