Benefits of using BBM

Unlike text messaging, where you might pay for each message that you send, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) uses your wireless service plan so you can send as many messages as you want. You can use BBM to chat and share files in real-time with other people who have BlackBerry smartphones. For example, you can see when someone has read your messages, and you can move your conversations to BBM Voice chats.

To connect with more people at the same time, you can collaborate on task lists, appointments, and pictures using a BBM group, or share and comment by joining a BBM channel.

Depending on your wireless service provider or organization, some features might not be supported. For more information about BBM, visit
