    I have upgraded to a Z10 from a curve 3G for about 3 months now, and it is absolutely great experience! 1 thing I found annoying is that previously on my curve 3G(OS6) I was able to send a broadcast message to a particular group category of mu contacts(i seperate my contact between family, friends, co-worker, etc). Previously broadcasting to only my co worker were very easy but now in my z10, when sending a broadcast message I need to tap each person manually which is not efficient or select all which I dont want. Is there anything Im missing? Or the BBM in OS10 can't broadcast to a BBM group categories.

    i've also noticed that.. certainly something that Blackberry needs to fix in the next update.. Lot of people want to send broadcast messages to a certain group of people.

    In BBM if you press more (The three dots in the bottom right corner) there is a broadcast message icon. While I don't know how to do it from a collection of contacts you can manually add people into the broadcast. Just select the people you want to add and then send.

    That's not what they are talking about.

    I know it's not. But it's the closest I could find. I am sure in a earlier version of BBM you could. I also thought if you did a long press on the name of a contact group it allowed it. But can't see that either.

    Go to the official BlackBerry support forums for BBM. Leave a thread saying what you would like. Or try their twitter.

    Maybe BlackBerry sees that as redundant sine we already have the ability to create any group of our choosing with custom names and icons. Probably since you could just post to that group and every member will get the same message at the same time? The only caveat I see is that you cannot get read receipts from within groups.

    If blackberry want their user back to use BB handset, bring back the ability to send broadcast message to bbm category contact.
    ---- And don't update this feature in Android/iPhone version.

    This is the MUST HAVE FEATURE in selling product, most of my friend are stuck with their old bb phone because of this feature is absent on BBOS10...

    Why don't use BBM grup/Channel?? Come on, we want an ease to use feature, for some old fellow BBM channel are make dificult not efficient for selling product...

    We are user, we want the simple things, there is no reason to buy BB Device, if the device can't fit our need. BB device is good buy not that good compare to Android/iOS facility. This is the power of BBM (Broadcast message!) And this is the basic feature that we NEED...

    If BB scare that the broadcast message cause server overload because of this feature, then i think its time for BB to retired!!!
