    Open you BBM app, make sure you're on the main screen (i.e. not in a chat)
    Tap the three (vertical) dots, then Settings.
    Set the slider for "BBM Connected Icon" to on.

    Unfortunately, my husband has already had enough of bbm and has removed it from his device.

    I believe an app must be coded specifically to be a 'resident' app.

    It seems odd that if you have the ongoing notification running it still closes. That's supposed to force an app to stay in memory if Android starts killing things, but it's possible that whatever game you're playing uses up so much RAM that Android has to kill BBM anyway. I can't remember if the S3 has 1GB or 2GB of RAM.

    I'm an old user of BBM, since 2006 but I moved to Android 3years ago because BBM died
    now I can't be any more happier that it is available on all devices <3

    That has to be implemented by BlackBerry, like WhatsApp did. If they didn't do it right (like many others), there's nothing you can do about it, Android will eventually throw away the idle process (depending on memory and stuff, thus not everybody has the same experience).

    This said, as BlackBerry apparently got it wrong, I wouldn't really bother on using BBM on Android yet, unless you don't want texting like permanent reachability.

    Rather poor on BlackBerry's side if they didn't get that very essential part right, sigh.
