    I was typing a story, which was detail ridden, and I got an a "text field full" error. Awful. I really believed that there was no limits in BBM.

    I still love you BBM, but I had to out you to all the CrackBerry addicts out there.

    What were you doing? If you are typing essays, BBM is not the place to do it. :P

    it used to be a bug in BBM....it would pop up randomly but it wasnt real. You could close the message and then open and type away past where it threw the error message without issue

    You guys really type out 2000 character BBM messages? I'd be pissed if I had to scroll that much to read something!

    What attitude, I was just saying that I would not read a message 2000 characters unless it was an email. BBM is to me for short messages and such. I have a hard enough concentating on short messages let alone long messages. Sorry if you or anyone else took offense.

    Oh, even this post sounded combative. I need to take courses in diplomacy.

    You said "I would not read it." I didn't take offense at all.

    What said was that I wouldn't waste my time write a message that long to someone who had that attitude about what I was writing to them.


    attitude 
    –noun
    1. manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, especially of the mind



    And I'm always curious about when people say that they wouldn't read long SMS or BBM but that they would read a long email. If you are reading on the BlackBerry, I'm curious as to what difference it makes.

    Because I read the long email on my computer. Very seldom not far from it. I dont get anything that important on my berry. Just the occasional Best Buy flyer and 20,000 WoW Gold for $25.00 oh and CrackBerry notifications. Cant forget those.

    So it looks like I read way too much into your comment. I do that alot.

    Nor would I. Nor would I type all that either I think what some people these days have forgotten is that the blackberry makes phone calls too . Good to there is a limit I suppose though
