    I have the Storm running BBM 4.7.0 that came on the device and I wasn't sure how the "broadcast message" feature worked. I have my contacts grouped and figured I could highlight that group and broadcast a message to the entire group but all it does is send it to the people I have active conversations with? I don't see an option to highlight certain names or groups. Am I missing something?

    TIA.

    The option to send to groups or certain contacts a broadcast message is in bbm 5.0. If you are running a 5.0 os than the new bbm 5.0 will be out on wednesday.

    A broadcast message gets sent to all or a group of your contacts in BBM. I am running .148 with BBM 5, if it matters to you.

    But the only group of contacts I can send it to are the ones I have an open or active conversation with..? Can this be changed?

    yes, with BBM5 you can select whole groups, select all, or check individuals to send to...with BBM 4.7 it's only available to broadcast with exisiting conversations

    however, for people who i don't have an open convo with, only some will show a new convo when i've sent a broadcast message...so i can't confirm if they got it...i don't rely on broadcasting very much, i just either post as my status, or on facebook or something...BBM is good for broadcasting to like 5 people, but i don't trust it beyond that

    Is this feature only for BB pin contacts? I don't have any contacts show up when I try to broadcast a message (it says *Empty*). I only have sms contacts and no BB pin numbers
