    Well, basically it is. But when you become a more seasoned Berry-head you come to find that it's also a "special" IM club.

    Some users do not have unlimited texting on their plan. Bbm doesn't count against their texts. Its like free texting.

    - Messages are sent faster than SMS messages
    - Doesn't cost anything extra for international PIN messages/BBM messages

    Well you could send files, pix, or voice messages with the new bbm. You could share your location, back up your contact lists, use new emoticons, broadcast messages to a whole group of contacts at a time.....scan contacts in with the scan feature and create bbm groups for starters.

    If a lot of your friends don't have BB's, then it's pretty much useless. If they do, then it's far better than SMS.

    very true. i wish more had it. however i could see BB launching a non business phone in the near future something to compete w/ iphone and android.

    There's also "Delivery" and "Message Read" confirmation, so you know your message got through.

    The confirmations and now that you can have avatar pics for your profile and see other people's etc. I also use it to communicate internationally and avoid the costs of international txts.
