    Hello guys,

    I just wanted to know what your experience was. And in terms of security, is it worth it? Installing it.

    And people you have it already on their phones, does it slow down your phone.

    I want to hear your opinions on this

    Security is subjective. Do you think it's secure? Do you trust the company? Are you comfortable with giving them your phone number? Do you agree with their privacy policy? Are you aware they are owned by Facebook? If so, how do you feel about Facebook? These are things only you can answer.

    And people you have it already on their phones, does it slow down your phone.
    No.

    Thanks blaze. I know there owned by Facebook, I don't mind the phone number giving its just the security bit that seemed iffy. That article which was released recently didn't help either so I wondered if it was worth it .

    And oh forgot to add, trusting the company? Off course I don't believe anybody trusts these big companies but what can one do *shrugs*

    I never liked whatsapp since I first used it on my curve 8900. Compared to bbm, it's just lame. However, since it was the only cross-platform available at the time, I didn't have much choice.

    I must say they've improved in terms of functionality and stability over the years, and it even looks half decent on bb10. And in terms of security, it's hard for me to say as all my friends and I talk about are walking dead episodes and other random nonsense, so even if our messages were hacked or something, no harm will be done

    Just install it and if you don't like it, then delete it. That's what a lot of my friends did with bbm when it didn't work for them.

    Thanks man, but when I was mentioning security, I meant in terms of accessing pictures and such. It's just that even though Whatsapp gives you the opportunity for you to refuse Access to your shared files, I read quite a bit online on how it sneakyly finds it's way there lol.

    I deleted Watsapp from my z30 ages ago. I (we) have BBM which is the best. My policy is: "If you don't want to talk to me on BBM, don't talk to me".

    I have 10.2 os in my z30 and I'm in mexico. All they use is WhatsApp.

    Everything is perfect except hub and quick notification doesn't show emoticons. But in a box.

    I am running the latest beta from Beta Zone on my Z30 10.2.1. It is my go to messaging app. Fast and fluid. Works well. Designed using native cascades. I use a lot of group chats and they work well. Hub integration is great. I like being able to reply to messages from within my hub.

    Hello, I recently updated my z30 expecting it to reboot/restart as expected but it never did. Instead it restarted to update allover again. Kind of irritating and the way I have been longing for this update. What could be the issue with my gadget? or is this normal? Just concerned. Thanks

    Its smooth with no glitches.

    Security wise its a disaster as in app permissions, you need to give lot of access to your phone including contacts, locations etc otherwise app don't work properly. No matter how much I love BBM, I'm using WA a lot as 95% of my contacts who are using smartphone, are on it. At work, we have a group created by my boss for official communications related to field work so its unavoidable part of my phone. I'm left with only12 BBM contacts down from 58.

    Ah I know what you mean. But the app permission only requires contacts to work well. My friend downloaded it in his BlackBerry and he only ticked for the contacts and phone identity bit. Bloody hell, why must these apps be so intrusive lol

    True. Sharing own number and contact list itself is a big concern. But that's how it works and no one minds who are willing to use it.

    How come my bbm contacts with bbm won't sync up like my normal contacts with Whatsapp?

    BBM works with pin, you will have to provide your pin. It doesn't just invade your contact list like whoapp does
