No, and tell your friends that the world did not end yesterday, and BBM did not shut down two weeks ago like another person posted.

Hoax, chain "letter" or whatever you want to call it.

Delete and forget.

Tell your BBM contacts not to forward junk to you again.

No one has ever hacked RIM or any of their data bases. Security is what they do.

I never thought I'd use these three letters and now hate myself for doing so, but...

OMG.

You have to post here for confirmation that this is BS?

Hi friends, my 8700 BB does not respond to open command of items that require java script. Is there anything I can do to change that? Please help me do that if you can!
