    I can't even use it to bbm my wife.

    I say " send bbm to my wife, have a nice day"
    And it says it back to me just fine.
    Then it says "would you like to set up bbm"

    Well the thing is already set up. But I say yes anyway.
    Then it crashes.

    The app is useless for any typing task. About all it can do is tell me the weather.

    I've hard reset, soft reset. What a pain in the *** this thing is.

    Works great for me perhaps you should try using your wife's name instead of just asking it to BBM your wife.

    If you go into BlackBerry World, is there an update for your BBM app?

    First, you need to say the actual entry name in the phone. Your phone has no idea who "my wife" is unless her phone entry is "my wife".

    Plus,.. saying anything nice is likely not compatible with a wife/husband contact.

    Maybe try a back-handed comment, or something expressing the complete lack of appreciation for everything they do right and highlighting everything they do wrong.

    The title of your thread is a bit excessive. Asking for help in a nice way may be better.

    Boy you are a hard person to please.

    Unless your wife user name is my wife then it won't work.

    You can also link your wife BBM to her contact so it recognizes her contact name as well.

    I think it goes something like:
    "Send BBM to "Name of Person" (as it appears on your contacts)"
    "Message how are you"

    It works great for me when I say BBM Pauline Chav(my wife's name), hello honey what are you doing? It even understand English as second language like me speak with a lot of accent. BBM is very different than Google Voice and Apple Siri that need specific command. BBM doesn't need specific command, just talk like you normal talk to someone. My phone is Z30 with 10.3.1.1581.

    I can understand your frustration. However if you want a digital assistant to understand that you want to contact your wife then the solution is simple. Just get a Windows phone with Cortana and she will make your life a lot easier in so many ways that other digital assistants cannot. She is amazing!

    Works fine for me in setting alarms, reading bbm messages back to and sending bbm messages as well.

    When I set up my bbm contacts, I'm pretty sure there isn't a field to designate who my wife is. So how the heck would bbm know? As mentioned, try stating her name as it appears in your contacts and I'm pretty sure you'll do slightly better.

    This is a decent forum to get help, when asked appropriately. Try giving that approach a try.

    Works great from me. A little slow and laggy but that will improve with time. Assistant is a success.

    It doesn't even mean it's user error either. It could genuinely be broken on his end. But that doesn't mean it's a piece of crap for everyone.

    Works like a champ in Siri. If Siri doesn't know whom your wife/husband is, it will ask you, makes the association then you're good to go.
