    It's BBM, because the other platforms' companies are a bunch of bung holes. They exclude BlackBerry users for whatever their bs reasons for doing so, known or unknown, might be. Those other companies (apple, android, & windows/skype) blow. Blackberry is the better person. BlackBerry includes the other platforms' users.

    (I know, I know, now some really smart poster will jump in and look really smart by pointing out that BBM hasn't reached out to Windows phone users. Already expected from those posters, just as it's already expected that BlackBerry will soon bring BBM to Windows phone in an update.)
    Is there talk of bringing it to Windows phones? If so, that's a really smart move on their part..

    So in a desperate bid to keep from becoming total irrelevant, BlackBerry just last week finally went crossplatform on only two other platforms.... and now everyone that hasn't built an app for a platform that has less that 1% marketshare is a .... hole?

    To be a useful cross platform IM, BBM need Windows Phone and Windows Desktop. But more importantly it needs SMS support like iMessage has.

    Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling knowing you support BB.

    (You clearly don't.)
    It's generally best to inform yourself before attempting to take a hit at someone. You might end up looking foolish.

    Name the BlackBerry that launched at AT&T since 2007 and I've bought it. Literally. The 8310, 9700, and 9900 in multiples because I bought them for family members as well as mine. Most of them cash. The only one I haven't got is the Q10.

    And yes, I've had three iPhones, two Samsungs, and one Motorola Atrix. I'm working on getting a Lumia.

    So.....like I said, inform yourself.

    I would. I prefer BBM by far, but my nephew uses iMessage to message family on his iPod Touch and BBM does not work on the iPod.

    I love BBM and can't wait until they update features and functionality. There is so much potential here.

    I went from 1 BBM user to 11. None of the additional users even knew what BBM was or used another similar service, except iMessage. Now they use it all the time. I have some more people to get on, but I wait until I am in person and basically set it up for them. It's easier to convince if they can see it and play with it. People hate setting up their BlackBerry ID for some reason.

    Of course I would and am so would you and most others. It is YAMA (Yet Another Messaging App like WeChat, Viber, WhatsApp , BBM, etc). The advantage about BBM for BlackBerry device users is already sold! So any app which helps additional messaging capability is always welcome specially when it addresses the larger majority-Apple device users are a majority!

    So many of the posts in this thread are silly. The *ONLY* reason not to use iMessage is because it "locks up" your phone number for SMS purposes, and it can be, under certain circumstances (like having ditched iOS), hard to unlock.

    iMessage is hardly crap, works well, and is a strong messaging platform. All other comments here about it sucking, etc., are non-sensical.

    I'd give it a try. Some of the iMessage concepts make sense to me.

    I have an iPhone. iMessage is quirky at times. Doesn't always send messages and your contacts don't always receive them. BBM is blazingly fast and I have yet to hear from a contact saying 'never got your message'......just saying...

    Ok after reading reviews if it involves me providing my phone number and nearly impossible to remove I rather not. For that I would have kept WhatsApp.

    I'd prolly install it but not use it. I just came from an iPhone and once I got bbm I refused to I imessage anyone lol

    I message is pretty useless. It's sms with delivered and read status that most people choose to disable

    It's worthless to release for BB because those users will proclaim BBM king no matter how much better your service is, and organize a boycott of your app.

    Better to just ignore them. They aren't many, anyways so use the resources to get better on other platforms.
