    I pretty much only use it to communicate with my wife's work BB. Her personal phone doesn't have a qwerty keyboard or a texting plan. My friends with work BBs have the messenger app disabled.

    I like BBM because it has deliver and read flags. Plus it doesn't use messages from my texting plan.

    I only use it to chat with my BBM group. Other than that, I don't use it because not many of my friends have BBs. And for those that do, they don't have a data plan.

    Don't use BBM much myself, other than with a few folks here in CB. All the folks I know in my life that I text, either do not have Blackberries or use several phones and swap the SIM between them, like most people change underwear.

    If it's just you and a few other people, BBM is just slightly better over SMS (as others said, faster, etc).

    But I think group chats and sharing pics are the biggest benefits of the new BBM 5, allowing everyone in the group to contribute (e.g. where we want to hang out, what're the plans for XYZ event, so and so). It's also easy to notify people about things.

    As others have said, I don't use it because I don't really know anyone else with a BB. Well, my boss has one but I don't really text with her My husband has an iPhone so we use normal texting to chat.

    For me the biggest benefit of BBM over SMS are the delivery and read flags. I don't use group chats because I don't know enough BB users to form a group. Transferring contacts over BBM is cool though.

    I'm unsure whether I prefer it over SMS. I only have two or three friends that have BlackBerrys that I know of so I sometimes use it with those.

    I wish i had more friends and family with Blackberries so I could use it more. I keep trying to sway them to the Blackberry camp, but they all seem to want Droids and iphones.
