    Love my BB and use it for work, but not BES/corporate issued. Colleagues in the office have all sorts of smartphones, we email & text each other. Ditto w/other friends. BBM seems superior from what I know, but it jsut doesn't seem relevant. I guess I could mae an effort to use it in place of BBM for my BB friends & colleagues....any suggestions?

    I would seriously use it, you don't have a character limit, don't pay for texts and it sends fast and you get the confirmation that they got/read it. I would use it even if you have unlimited texting I would still use it.

    It was a fairly convenient way to communicate when I had a BB although I never knew anybody in person who owned a BB.

    If your friends and coworkers have BB devices i'd probably use BBM vs text because SMS on a BB isn't as convenient as on other devices...

    ^^i suggest you post in the newbie section instead of attempting to raise post count like this.

    @OP, if you can't find a need for it, it probably won't work for you and forcing it down won't help.

    I would use it, but none of my friends have BlackBerries. (That's probably just because I don't have many friends.) But they do sit at their computers all day, and I use other instant messengers to chat with them, BB to computer.

    Bbm is amazing. If bbm died I would die too.

    I use BBM a lot to comunicate with family and friends that leave abroad (in my home country), its a great tool since its free of charge.

    Nope - the only time in the 2 plus years I had a berry that I used BBM was a couple of file transfers.

    Never used it. In fact, I hated it. I really don't like that read notice. If I don't want to answer you immediately it's none of your effin' business.

    Not only that, but how many times has BBM been down because of RIM's servers or other issues. I can count numerous times it took days for a message to get through. How is that efficient? I'm thinking of trying Kik Messenger. It sounds intriguing.

    Email, sms and mms for me. Used bbm maybe twice then dumped it. If I knew more bb users I would load it back. But I am surrounded by droids, iphones, htc's and lg's!

    I've never used it, although I've had a BB for over two years. I end up using cross-platform IM services, precisely because not everybody has a BB, and those who do can't be bothered using a special IM service just for those who do have BBs.

    BBM is useless to me. None of my friends have BBs.

    I have unlimited texting, so, eh.

    I used BBM once I think...Just to try it out. Other than that, I prefer just text messaging

    Yeah, I don't really use it either. Not to many friends with BlackBerries. For work, I do some pretty weird shifts, so mine helps me keep track of everything. If I had more friends or colleagues with BB's, I'd definitely use it.

    I used to use it a lot, but now that I'm working I don't have time to use it much. No issues with the platform, tho; just don't know many people who have BBs.
