    i was cheeking the news when i found that RIM ( Blackberry ) has made it official that BBM app will be available for android and iOS in 21 and 22nd of September respectively. and i was thinking of how GREAT it would be to have such a great app on WP, maybe just because i'm a previous BB user ... But i really think that BBM is the best messaging apps I've ever used. think about it you won't need WA, KIK, Viber anymore, just one app to rule them all.

    Do you think BBM should lunch on WP ? Or you think that the app is out of the game already .. lets hear what you think about it

    I don't see a need for it at all, there's already tons of the same apps.

    Personally I don't want for bbm at all, i find the wp messaging app to be more than enough. To be fair though, ive never used bbm, so i might be missing a trick.

    I think the only way we will see a wp bbm app is if blackberry stop making phones, or bbm becomes a different company.

    dont think anybody cares. BBM is not as relevant as whatsapp these days.

    I do care and want as many official apps as other OSes but I think Blackberry are finding themselves in bit of a stew and I don't know if they will respond quicker BlackBerry layoffs could portend a sale

    BBM is more reliable than any WP IM app I've used. I would welcome BBM.

    I worked for RIM and it's the one feature I miss about BB and it's really hard to explain what makes it stand out above the rest and sms to someone who has never used it BUT Microsoft should have stumped RIM and BBM years ago with Messenger and now with Skype.

    whatsapp is rancid on WP so I don't even consider it

    I'm fine with icq...viber and line are great additions too, seriously... what beats free messaging and calls.

    don't need all the fancy stuff bbm may offer...I'm happy with what I got already.

    Seriously guys don't be fanboys. BBM is future of messaging not whatsapp. I might switch because of unavailibility of BBM

    I don't have a problem with BBM coming to the platform, I just don't see the need for it, we have so many choices already. I'm not going to suddenly think, I must use BBM when I need to IM my BB colleages. How is it the future exactly? Right now, BB need an audience more than we need BB.

    Adios - oh and do switch back because of unavailability of Office, Xbox Games and Xbox Music and beautiful and fluid OS.

    It will be an added benefit for those switching from Blackberry to other OS.

    Personally, I only want to use messengers built into the system. Currently FB and hopefully Skype in 8.1 Blue.

    I admire your enthusiasm for BBM...they need it, but what makes BBM so good anyway, what features does it have that what's app does not ? or rather how is it better than what's app ?...do tell

    viber ?...can you make free VoIP calls with BBM ? (viber can both send free messages and call)

    I'm not against your opinion, I have never used BBM...I just want to know what makes it so great and far better than the competition ?

    The biggest issue for BBM before was that it was tied to your device and not your username. I always felt it was a hassle if you changed your device and you had to let everybody know what your BBM is.

    I would rather have immessage on my windows phone. It is a better service IMHO.

    No not really... each Blackberry has a PIN that is unique BUT where blackberry over excelled was being able to do full back ups using desktop manager then restoring the backup on your next/new device. could do a full restore of everything including all the altered settings OR just restore certain parts like BBM setting, groups contacts.

    also can back up and restore using your primary email address and a few years back RIM then created Blackberry ID which would carry over your BBM contacts/settings.


    you are right about BBM being tied to the device/PIN.


    anyway I miss BBM butttt I would love for Microsoft to put a bigger push with Skype and have no doubts it's coming down the pipeline.


    add group chat, Read and Deliver marks and show the person typing feature and I'd say its golden

    LINE? That is a half-baked app since Naver does not consider Windows Phone to be a major device. NO FREE CALLS, Premium Stickers and same features as their iOS and Android counterparts.

    BBM for WP would work especially well here in the UAE. People have started to get over the BB craze but it's still the dominant player in the market. Windows Phone, however, is closer to edging out iOS and Android for 2nd place. I have loads of friends who use BBM as their IM platform of choice because there is a plan here in the UAE where you pay roughly AED50 (Just under $15) per month to get unlimited social network and BBM. They prefer using BBM over FB messaging and so I'd love to have BBM on my Lumia 925

    I love my lumia but today I'm frustrated. WP users are completely left out of this bbm frenzy.
    And there is no hope that we'll get bbm soon or anything. I have absolutely no clue how people develop apps, but do you think any of our talented devs can create one? :S
