    I've never used a blackberry never will.

    but my girlfriend is in the dominican republic for two months and she has a blackberry over there and she's able to use BBM on it.

    is there any way I can send msgs to bbm from my iPhone ? any app idk.

    thanks...

    Yes BBM requires data (either cellular or local wifi will do).

    Try whatsapp. She'll need to have data access for anything like that though.

    If she doesn't have access to internet or cellular data, it doesn't matter if she has BBM...

    Think outside the box. In business, if you are standing in a server room with no phone, you want to know that someone on the other side testing in the field is reading and verifying connection status or whatever. That is just one example.

    BBM isn't like regular old fashioned SMS, do your homework. It would be nice if apple could have something comparable to BBM.

    So I am trying to understand this statement. You need to use BBM to find out what someone is doing because you don't have phones? :confused:
