    BBM has just integrated PayPal as a feature, not sure how it works but I think it is a great strategy for BBM to get more subscribers & support from telco's. Here's what I think BBM should do to get more subscribers :

    1. #BBM should partner with telco's to share the #PayPal revenue with the telco's whenever we purchase something through BBM using PayPal

    2. #BBM should integrate #PayPal into #BBMchannels so that people can buy & sell using #PayPal

    3. #BBM should then allow us to send sponsored BBM to SMS messages to our contacts. So when we send a BBM to someone who doesn't have an active BBM, they receive an SMS. When they reply, we get it as a BBM. So they may need for pay for the SMS & the revenue of these SMS will go to the Telco's.

    There will also be a footer on these BBM to SMS saying that she will receive a BBM reply, to save cost download BBM.

    4. #BBM should allow us to discover our contacts using phone number, then the contact will have to authorise the contact add request.

    In this way I feel that there will be a win - win situation for both BBM, Telco's, PayPal, government, economy & BBM users. Hope that this is not too difficult to understand or too vague for people to understand.

    SMS is sent in plain text in my understanding.. BBM is encrypted. Also the main reason why I use BBM is the fact that I don't have to provide my phone number.

    I like your thoughts up to the point of phone numbers. I like our ability to use pins instead. Other than that nice suggestions.

    Thanks, but PIN doesn't work. Nobody wants to know PIN's or is bothered about it coz it's very cumbersome.

    Guess it really depends on who and how you connect with people.

    That's why custom BBM PINs are a good idea, easier for sharing with other people. They need to be free though for them to really take off.

    I think that custom PIN's are too expensive.

    My question on this topic is, how the heck does one set this up on their BBM? I live in Canada, and am using the most up-to-date BBM version, but for the life of me, I can not find any menu, or icon on BBM that directs me to setting up a PayPal account on BBM. Anyone got a tutorial?

    You'll need the beta version of 10.10, make sure you have that
