    someone sent me a bbm and i intentionally have not read it yet...there is a yellow dot next to their bbm name and i was wondering what this means? if i actually read it or click around in the message, the dot turns grey. i was wondering if i have the yellow dot on my phone, what are they seeing on their phone..meaning if i have the yellow dot, do they have a 'd' symbol since it's been delivered but not an 'r' symbol since i haven't read it? please, any info on this is welcome...

    You are exactly right...

    Yellow dot on your end, a "D" on their end
    Gray dot on your end, a "R" on their end

    Here's a little tip on reading the message but keeping the yellow dot and a "D" on their end:

    From within BBM:
    Hit the menu button
    Select "Options"
    Scroll down to "Save Chat History"
    Choose either "Media Card" or "Device Memory"

    Then when you receive a message from someone and you want to read it but not let them know you did.

    Highlight the conversation
    Hit menu button
    Select "View Chat History"
    Scroll and select that day

    After that you can read the whole message without the "D" turning to an "R" on their end.
