    Today with the arrival of my new Z10, comes with quite a surprise. My BBM list has grown by 14 people today(I'm taking credit for about 6 of those sales). This is the first time in about 4 years that my list of people is getting larger and not smaller, and I know from quite a few other friends that have told me their "coming back to BB". A few years back, I think at the peak, I had well over 100 people on my BBM list. Eventually, I'd start getting more and more BBM's sent saying, "I'm moving on to iPhone or Android", and eventually my list dwindled down to about 18. It was a nice surprise to start getting BBM invites again and seeing more people on my BBM contacts!!! Hopefully this is the start of things to come!!!

    Are you sure all those people still use it? I had roughly 220+ a few years ago and down below 40 until yesterday I was brought back up to 42.

    Doubtfull, BB isnt a fan favorite as before. I could search out people at my new company but I have been used to not using it. SMS is free, not much difference.None of my friends are interested at all, and to be honest both family members will not be getting new blackberries for renewals.
