Very interesting and informative read! Picked up some useful facts about BBM that I previously didn't know so thanks for posting this! I'm sure Apple's iMessage will up security and privacy as the months and years roll by.

BB are rubbish all around. Constant freezes and the limitation of applications. RIM need to up their game.

even though i hate my BB freezing, i dont think i'd be able to survive without BBM.. many people rely on just getting their bbm working every month by topping up. Very often they dont have credit to text me everyday, but when they have bbm we can talk all day long (y)
