    I’m assuming you’ve got actual BBMe contact lined up or this could be tough question to answer...

    Sarcasm intended but I couldn’t resist.

    I’d seriously doubt it unless you can sideload, use secret VPN and get past the payment screen. I believe when it first rolled out, several tried and validating payment information was the fail point.

    I'm thinking more about installing it before going to China so I can stay in contact with people in North America.

    I don’t have a good answer for you.

    What’s been the experience of anyone using BBMe on the mainland behind the Great Wall literally?

    Just get a vpn running. Typically in China on a foreign sim everything works, no blockages. Once you log into a local wifi system no more google and no more whatsapp eg. Using a vpn solves the wifi problem.

    I didn't have enough time to convince others to get BBM subscriptions, so I am using Skype Lite, which does not have strong encryption, but at least everyone has a Skype account, and it's not WeChat.

    Skype no longer has encryption anyway. That's why hub can see the messages.

    Hub can see WhatsApp messages too, so I'm not sure if that's an indicator of anything.
