Default BBM vs New iMessage

Please Login to Remove!

With the new announcement of iMessaging for iPhone does anyone think people will finally be able to let go of their blackberries? I've been a blackberry person for years but with the popularity of iphone i think more people will finally thinking of switching over. I've heard rumors that blackberry was going to release a build for Android and iPhone this year, but my blackberry rep told me he never heard anything of the sort.

So what do you think of the iMessaging and would you switch over?

Got news for you, people have been letting go of their BBs long before iMessage was announced. At my Dept we went from just about everyone having a BB to now only 3 people having a BB.

Half kidding. If it started chatting with her I'd be reading all about her hair appointment, the troubles her colorist is having, and a ton of bs about my mother-in-law. I can't deal with that during the day.
