The Blackberry Messenger is a really easy way to stay in touch with your friends. (that is… if they have a blackberry too…)
There isn’t any cross-platform support as far as I know, meaning that you can’t IM your AIM or iPhone buddies unless they have the blackberry messenger installed to.
Anyway- here are some of it’s features.
- Personalize BlackBerry Messenger with a display picture
- Add friends by scanning barcodes or sharing PINs
- Share pictures, videos, voice notes and more with multiple contacts at once
- Create groups of friends, family or colleagues and instantly share calendars, lists, conversations and updates
- See what your friends are listening to by viewing their song titles
- Organize conversation lists by date
- Send and receive text messages
- Back up and restore your contact list
But, to use the BlackBerry Messenger, you’ll need:
- A data service plan from your wireless service provider
- A BlackBerry smartphone with 64 MB of memory
- 2.4MB of available smartphone memory
- BlackBerry® Device Software v4.5 or later
This app wasn’t of any use to me, and was constantly running in the background…
(Which seemed to create a lag in my Blackberry Speed)
So I uninstalled it.
Right now, it’s supposedly impossible to uninstall the Blackberry Messenger because it’s one of those preloaded applications.
So don’t ask me how I did it, because I don’t exactly know.
I was updating to a newer version of the Blackberry Messenger, (just for the heck of it), and along the way, the Blackberry App World malfunctioned and completely erased it. I didn’t mind of course.
Actually, I was quite happy to be rid of it!
