About BlackBerry Messenger

With BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), you can chat and share in real-time with your BlackBerry contacts. For example, you can see when someone has read your message and when the person is typing a reply. You can also share pictures, voice notes, your location, and files.

You can use BBM Groups to plan events, delegate tasks, and see when members add or change items. A social space is created in BBM so that you can chat and share pictures, lists, and calendar appointments with up to 30 people in a group at the same time.

You can use BBM over a Wi-Fi connection, such as while you're travelling.
