    O.K. #1 What is the difference between BB messenger, and regular texting? #2 What is the purpose of "pinging" somebody?

    BBM is BlackBerry to BlackBerry messaging. It is not a SMS or an email...it is a BlackBerry Message and is used when you want to have more of a conversation with someone and not just a text or two back and forth and is, of course, only available to BB users.

    Pinging could be used to test if that persons device is working properly, if they can receive these messages, etc. That's what I have used it for in the past instead of typing out a message.

    http://forums.pinstack.com/f231/what...5/index20.html this answers the BB Messenger question. In a nutshell, Messenger is global and uses data to transmit. Text is...text that you pay per use for. Pinging is usually used for diagnostic reasons or just a friendly ping.

    My wife likes to use the ping feature quite regularly when I don't respond to her message immediately!

    transmitting times on BBM is much faster (almost instant) vs texting (although texting isn't THAT much slower)
