BlackBerry Messenger BBM
Advantages: Really easy to use, cheap, a great way of messaging other BlackBerry users.
Disadvantages: none for me!
I honestly dont know what I would do without BlackBerry messenger also known as BBM i barely ever text anymore now i have this.
BBM is a app which can only be found on a BlackBerry, this app is downloaded from the BlackBerry app world which is also easy to download from the official BlackBerry website on your handset. It is an app which is a instant messenger only for BlackBerry owners by using a pin.
Every BlackBerry has a specific pin which can be found on your Box of your Blackberry or if you go on your main menu then settings (picture of a spanner) then down to the Status option, click that and your pin is on there along with other things like Battery percent. There is also a unique image for each BlackBerry which can be found on your BBM known also as a barcode, other BlackBerrys can scan this picture whichs adds the other BlackBerry as a BBM contact. BBM is very simple to use and when you click on this app there is a invite contact option, you go on this and either enter there pin or scan there barcode using your camera. When you add someone on BlackBerry messenger they will be notified and have to accept/decline this request.
BBM is a instant messenger service. It is always running on your handset and you can change your status to busy or online. It is amazing, as you can send files, pictures, texts, messages, voice clips, music and even maps!! Also on BBM you can change your messenger name, picture and even have a status which you can update as much as you want. There is also a recent updates option at the top of the Blackberry messenger if you click on this you can see what all the people in your contacts have been up to e.g Picture, Name and status changes! Also you have the option of people being able to see what music you are listening to when you do so. You can also have group conversations so it is very easy compared to texting as you only have to send the messages once!
Also what is great about BlackBerry messenger which you cant do using usual texts and msn messenger is that you can tell if the person you have sent it too has read the message or not! Also you can tell when they are writing a message as it says under there contact name writing a message. When the message has been delievered but not read a little D will appear next to your message on your contacts and chat screen, without actually having to go onto the individual conversation. Whereas if the message has been read then a small R appears next to your message. Sometimes next to the message appears just a tick, this means that the persons phone may be off or perhaps they dont have signal. If a red clock appears next to the message it means that you have no signal or that it is unable to send.
BUT if you want BBM you must make sure that you get the BlackBerry internet with your contract or you wont be able to download BlackBerry apps. I know a lot of people who have done this and regretted it, if you are going to get a BlackBerry BBM is very useful and is certainly worth that extra £5 on your contract!
I deffinatley reccommend this App it is so easy to use and much easier than text messaging someone!
Summary: Deffinatley worth that extra £5 on your contract!
