    I read this article yesterday and I tried to look for an english version, but no luck.
    Apparently the Italian Mafia is using BBs to communicate with Mexican Drug cartels since messages cannot intercepted.

    Italian Mafia speech with cartel of the Gulf by Blackberry
    Nicola Gratteri, solicitor of the Italian city of Reggio-Calabria, indicated that the Calabrian Mafia is in contact with the enemy with the Mexican narcotics detectives by this means because it is difficult to intercept Members of the Ndrangheta, the Calabrian Mafia, were detected in communication with Mexican narcotics traffickers through Blackberry equipment, today confirmed the solicitor of the Italian city of Reggio-Calabria, Nicola Gratteri.

    “Ndranghetistas used mass media (Blackberry) that normally are difficult to intercept”, said Gratteri after presenting/displaying in Rome the Brother edition of its book “of blood”, on the Calabrian Mafia, written altogether with the expert Antonio Nicaso.

    That information was presented during the presentation of the book by Nicaso, although according to the solicitor “it was not the case of speaking of it, because it is not necessary to give suggestions to the Mafia”.

    Gratteri declined to give to majors information on the relations between the Ndrangheta and the Mexican cartel of the Gulf, confirmed in September last with the operation “Will pave”, that took to tens of arrests in Italy and the United States.

    They are not that secure. For the average user they are safe but if someone wants to hear or track you EX: FBI CIA they are going to be able to know anything and everything to do with the BB.

    If they were not able to be compromised Then our president would have one.
    a.k.a they are vulnerable.

    They probably use blackberries for the same reason we do. because you can do anything anywhere and the are cool. hahaha
