    BB Messenger Question?

    Advertisement



    Does BB messenger only work with people on blackberries. If I set up my account can i IM on other apps such as yahoo or google and stuff like that. My brother in law has a palm centro, can he establish a BB account or must he be a BB owner?

    If you have a BB data plan you can download yahoo and google talk from mobile.blackberry.com depending on who your carrier is. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    that logic is flawed. nokias can use Blackberry Connect and can have blackberry data plans. so can a bunch on windows mobile phones. from what little ive read about blackberry connect the device is then "assigned" a PIN similiar to a blackberry's PIN.

    since BB messenger is just PIN messaging with a nice interface, why couldnt phones running bb connect use bb messenger. also there IS a download link for messenger...
