    I agree Microsoft need to start pushing apps to the limit thats what attracts everyone.
    When people know about Windows Phone not having official apps such as Snapchat, Instagram and Vine. Then it puts ALOT of people of.

    I don't want it, and I don't need it. I'm not part of "we all want"

    BBM is not going to survive on Blackberry's let alone other platforms. Releasing it for other platforms is so desperate it is not even a hail mary.

    It doesn't matter who wants it and who doesn't. If the other os' can support bbm, wp should too. Users can decide for themselves if they want to download it or not.
    The lack of many popular apps and games is what hinders people from using wp.

    Don't know anyone other than BB users that still use BBM so I don't see the big fuss about it.

    Either way the ball is in Blackberry's court to develop an app for WP so people should direct their words to BlackBerry, not Microsoft. With Blackberry pretty much conceding third place we might see an app eventually.

    It's a massive possibility that a lot of your friends use it, and at the same time, you're sympathetic to BB, so you'll try it.

    Last time I cchecked there were one million active downloads of the unofficial leaked version of BBM for Android.

    Surely, it is for Blackberry Ltd. to determine whether BBM comes to WP, not Microsoft. Unless, of course, Microsoft decide to acquire the discounted Blackberry Ltd.

    I'm not convinced that there is enough value in BBM alone to justify such an acquisition.

    It will in time, BB has lost it and is going nuts with making BBM available to all, I mean why would anyone stay on BB now?
    I had a crazy message today,

    "I spent $400 for the phone
    $10 every month for the BBM Plan

    What do I get in return?

    I chewed up ice-cream"

    If BBM eventually comes to WP, good for them, good for us.

    I personally have no need for BBM. Why would I want to send messages through BBM rather than text (SMS). Everyone I know has unlimited texting now (I've had it since 2006).

    Yes, use inferior products because you "grow up".

    That makes perfect sense.

    Instead of saying Blackberry is dying, Say they are growing. The news says there dying but there coming up just like Windows, there both coming up. Blackberry and Windows users look to get stuff done, not play games on my Iphone or Android device. They need to work together to overcome the Sheep that's with IOS and Android. BB and Windows is great systems, That's why i use them. BBM needs to have exclusive things for BB and Windows. Team work helps in the long run.

    Black berry is worth less. I only know one person that has one. Its a z10, he gave me a tour and started doing some gestures. The first thing I though was, who is going to learn this just to get business done. Every other OS is straight forward.

    I don't think many of your fellow BB users feel as positive as you do about WP. Looking at the Crackberry forums many take jabs at WP whenever they can, while at the same time moaning and groaning about how Google and Apple are evil.

    It probably won't happen, and not to sound pessimistic, but BB looks like they're about to go out of business. Apparently, there stocks have tanked and they just cut something like 4500 jobs and have a net operating loss of almost a billion dollars. Sure, they've been around for a while and probably do have a decent amount of savings but I can't imagine they are going to be in business for too much longer with this kind of thing going on.

    I wouldn't worry about BBM either. Unfortunately, even if it is a better product than Whatsapp, for example (I don't use either so I don't know), these kind of things are about the network. I have 0 friends that use BBM, and I know 1 guys that has one. Sure, the z10 is a nice phone and I like the OS, but I can't imagine putting BBM on iOS or android is going to save them. At least MS is smart for example, do you want office on a tablet?, then you have to buy a windows tablet. Its one of the major selling points of the platform. From what I just saw, BB just gave away on of their best selling points of going with a BB anyways...

    I think instead of dismissing it because it doesn't work for you, be hopeful that it comes in time with the high interest that it seems to be garnering. No, I won't use BBM but I'm sure others would like to have it. Having options is NEVER a bad thing

    1.1 Million "active" in the first 8 hours, without even launching the app. Yeah right. Dead. I know.

    BBM, is, was and will remain the father of Messaging services. What'sApp, Line have all built on it. The core was and is BBM. I would like to see BBM on WP not because "I love it" and "You hate it", or "You love it but I hate it". But because we ALL love WP.
    Can you imagine what kind of user base it can bring in? If on Android, 1.1 MILLION users got hold of a leaked app and activated it within 8 hours, just imagine if news leaked that even WP is working on one BBM App?

    Sales will go up like this *snaps finger*!

    In the end, people will have one less reason to complain about.

    PS: I have hated BBM as much as you have (if you have). But BBM has a legacy attached with it, which sadly none of the existing options do.

    If the forum rules allow me, I want to guide you to my blog: techtrove.wordpress.com. It covers all this and more.

    Mods/Admins: I am NOT promoting my blog. I had just covered the topic in discussion hence the link.

    Man, I've had BBM for a year, was using Bold 3. No doubt it was the best thing back then until whatsapp came.
    As for BBM is the father, the father is getting old, sick, looks pale and needs too much care to come out and play with his grand children.
