    Now my girlfriend has gone to a Galaxy S2 from a Bold 9700 there's no real need for me to keep my BBM. Will it improve my BB 9900's battery life if i uninstall it?

    I'll have to use Whatsapp now to talk to her. Or, do I get a new Girlfriend....

    The latter. I cant see bbm being a battery drainer if its just doing nothing in the background.

    I'd keep it even if i wasn't going to use it.

    I've uninstalled BBM and installed whatsapp instead. Since i've only 15-20 ppl on bbm, it was a smart idea to switch whatspapp with over 150 ppl in my phonebook.
    If you are not going to use it much just uninstall bbm and switch whatsapp. +

    I don't think BBM uses any battery if it is not being used. I never see it show up in the Device Analyzer under battery drains.

    I would be more worried about whatsapp draining your battery. Enable device Analyzer and battery drain tracking and I bet whatsapp will show as a drain.

    You might want to just revert to texting her or buy her a newer BlackBerry.

    There are some apps that need BBM to run. So I'd keep it.
