    When messaging some of my more talkative contacts, I have noticed BBM being really slow to deliver messages. It speeds up again after we "End Chat" and start again, and I suspect the chat may have been overloaded.
    Is there a way to get BBM to remove messages once they get to a certain age? 2 weeks would be optimum, I would rarely if ever have to go back and reference something that old.
    You used to be able to do it for text messages, "keep messages for 2 weeks" but not BBM.
    Any ideas, anyone?

    Yes there is. You need BBM protected. You can set the timer to burn the chat after any period of time measured in minutes. I have mine set to 48 hours.

    Create a BBM Group, add your friend, and set the Chat history to whatever period you want. For regular users Chat history settings are only available in Groups.

    You can use 1-on-1 chats if you have to send files or whatever occasionally and you can use the Group for 'spammy' conversations. There are only a few options missing from Groups so you should be able to do most of your chatting there.

    Once its set up, you control BBM Protected settings via the enterprise consol in a browser.
