    Hey there,

    Anyone else getting these once a day? This is really starting to annoy me. Blackberry originally said no more then three a month. I've had one everyday this week. I wish I could turn off advertising.

    Is it an invite from the same Channel? I believe you can block it if it keeps inviting you. Also, did you upgrade to the newest BBM version that was just released a couple of days ago?

    I have a BlackBerry and have not received a single invite.

    Yep, I have the newest version. The ads are different every time.

    I actually don't get any.

    Is it because I'm using a BlackBerry?

    Hopefully that's what it is. My Z10 was unfortunately run over by my own truck so I'm using the Moto G LTE until the passport comes out. I cant believe people like this OS. I can't wait to go back to BB10.

    Was about to post a thread about this issue.

    Beyond annoying to keep getting the invites. Deleted them and got three yesterday alone. Hoping there is a way to stop or block then going forward.

    Got two more again today. Saw that there was a "block sponsored invites " option in overflow menu.

    Will see if that works.

    Lol its not because u aren't on a BlackBerry. I've gotten quite a few on my Z10. It honestly doesn't bother me though. I don't get any kind of notification for them. They literally just appear in the feeds section and I skip over them lol

    I'm getting these constantly and it's really annoying. Like others here, I would also pay to get rid of these ads.

    I'm honestly really close to abandoning BBM altogether. Most of my friends already have anyway.

    yeah, it's really annoying, and I didn't find any way to disable those sponsored invites in overflow menu. Thinking of leaving BBM as well.

    I'm holding out!
    I didn't mind it at first
    And I block each one that come!
    However it was the dating site one that upset me mostly.

    Block em all and enjoy the new features bbm offers! I love glympse and channels!

    I hate channels and despise the SPAM that is 'sponsored invites'. As a BB10 owner, I shouldn't have to deal with unwanted ads. Let the android and iOS folks cover the costs of multi-platform BBM. I want no part of this

    Agreed
    I have a berry I have more invested in the company then an android, windows or ios.
    So should deserve some respect for that!!

    Come on BBM where is the love for the more committed users!!?
