    Hi, most of the BB10 users missing the actual PING!!! in the new BBM and waiting for such an update which will bring the old notification features like diffrent sound and vibration, because PING!!! with a red color only means a #non_functional_ping

    So please if you see that help me to send our message to BLACKBERRY as much as we can

    Welcome to CrackBerry!
    There's also issues with group pictures not showing up in the Hub.
    One day, these issues may be solved.
    Or acknowledged.

    I haven't had occasion to use it since I got my Z10. Just pinged my wife, it worked. I am on leaked 10.2.0.1371, though. What version are you running?

    I've used & received PINGs on my Q10 since the beginning with no problems....As for bobauckland's BBM groups notifications, I too have that issue & would like to see it fixed.

    Of course you can send and receive "pings" but it is absolute the same as texting the word "ping". Nothing happens except displaying the word "ping" in red letters.

    The is no extra vibration,No extra tone nothing. So "pinging" is absolute useless, even in 10.2.15XX

    No "ping" Is not useless, it just doesn't work the same way as before.
    I think your title is misleading

    The ping purpose was to make a difference when the profile was set to ignore regular messages or something.
    If it just sends the word ping in red with no extra alert, it's pointless, you may as well type ola!

    I can't say what happens when you type the word ping. But if you tap on ping it sends a proper ping (it does restrict you to 4 consecutive pings though to prevent ping spamming (which it think is a good thing)

    Its not the same as a ping on legacy devices.
    As i said, you can't mute all message but allow pings to vibrate or behave differently.

    Pings aren't proper pings, bbm groups don't alert properly, and bbm channels posts and comments also don't show up in the hub or give any alerts unless you actually open the app or run it as an active frame.
    Also, pictures sometimes don't get sent and can't easily be resent.

    Somehow bbm on bb10 feels like more of a third party app than whatsapp.

    Shame, cos bbm on bb7 was rock solid.
