    Why would you want to do that? The friends I have with IPhone all use WhatsApp.

    No Imessage is garbage, might as well text.

    Sure, I'd install it so soon as it's available. Why shouldn't I install it?

    Never want an iPhone but do get frustrated that my apple account & iMessage is only accessible on my apple devices like my MacBook & iPad.. Would be convenient if iMessage could be installed on my Q10

    No I would not want to install it at all because I would want to know if I am going to pay for this message or not. iMessage does not allow me to know if I am going to send a free text or pay for it.

    The other reason is that it has no features like WhatsApp or BBM

    Actually this is not true. I think the send button is a different color for an SMS vs. an iMessage.

    I do wonder, though, what happens when a recipient iOS user swaps their SIM out, and does it often. Does iMessage notify the sender each time? Basically, how good is their device detection?

    Is it true? So I get to choose if I want to send an SMS or iMessage?

    I think the device detection is not reliable as I read that there are a lot of people who switched from iPhone cannot get SMS from their friends using iPhone. In the same light I think most people don't even know if they are sending SMS or iMessage.

    I don't know if you get to choose on a message to message or even an individual to individual basis, but there may be a global setting to turn the iMessage feature on or off. Maybe an iOS user (and there are plenty here) could shed some more light.

    For what? Then I'd have to install all their other apps unlike BBM which is an all in one app.

    iMessage is just like BBM except it can be contacted at different addresses like email, apple account, & or phone number if you own an iPhone.. Therefore, it would never cost just as a BBM is free.. Both instant messaging not SMS

    If you sent an SMS the button and conversation is green and the iMessage is blue. You would be fully aware of it. If you turn off iMessage you would just sent a regular text message and there is absolutely no problem with people receiving it.

    Definitely, iMessage has a nifty mic tab at the bottom and you just press it, speak your text hit done and send off as text.

    But can you video chat and make audio calls on iMessage? Nope you gotta use a different app.

    No ... I cannot trust apple... They'll sell each detail to make profits...
    BBM and WhatsApp are better and more mature...

    I think this is a fair question, considering that as a BB user I am asking my ios friends to install BBM. So, if it were reversed what would you do?
    Since all my interactions with Apple users has been on FaceTime (using my iMac), I wouldn't install it for the features.
    But for my curiosity, I would definitely have it on my device for some time.
    If it won't suit my purpose, it will just lie on my device like the other apps that I downloaded and haven't deleted (cleaning time is coming up soon).

    If I like it and/or it serves a purpose, I will definitely keep it....

    No, I don't like how it ties up your mobile phone number and then makes it near-impossible to remove your phone number from their list.
    Impossible? You just sign out. Settings > Messages > Tap ID > Turn off iMessage or Sign Out.

    Of course it does... you can even turn off SMS texting... However, iMessage let's you know if the recipient has iMessage turned on before you even send the message... but if it were on BB it probably wouldn't handle SMS anyway, just like BBM doesn't handle it on iOS.
