    BB msg doesn't use data, but it only works with other BB's...

    It's BBM is free and uses the data plan that you already pay for instead of txts that you would have to get a separate plan for. So if you have a lot of friends with BBs than it's great but if not I can see why you would not care for BBM. But you are right it is basically the same thing as txting someone

    Ok thanks, because I was wondering. I do have unlimited txt msging w/ sprint as part of my BB service....I guess not everyone does though so in that case I'd just IM them

    Plus, I like that you can see when the message has been delivered, when it's been read, and when the person writes back

    I like it because you can actually send pictures and voice messages to people on messenger.

    Its a nice feature. Me and the wife both have BB and dont want to pay for unlimited text plan. We us messenger to chat while we are both at work plus i use it to send quick pics of are 7 month old baby boy when shes havin a bad day at work and needs some cheering up. Thats the part the wife loves the most out of the messenger.

    in my experience being able to see when a message is sent/checked is awesome
    i also like the fact that someone can send a pic and i can view it w/o actually having to dl it to my phone
    also since its only bb people the convo is that much better

    LOL too funny

    I also have unlimited picture mail but I'm really beginning to realize that not everyone has all these things I do included in their BB plans....interesting.

    Well I do see the advantage to knowing when the message was read. That's pretty cool
