    • I am on a corporate plan, and bought an iPhone because they are brilliant of course, and my BB Bold is in my top drawer now :)
    • My boss is upset as he uses Blackberry messenger to send messages to us all regularly

      I have two questions:
    • Is there an App which allows me to chat with Blackberry messenger contacts and:
    • Is this app (if it exists) able to run in the background - i.e. I simply obviously can't have it open constantly

    Notes:

    • I have searched already on the threads
    • I have fring and pmessenger and they don't seem to do the trick
    • Will running in the background apps like this be supported in future iphone updates? (hopefully there is one now though)

    Thanks in advance

    i dont think apple will ever allow something like this, i think you should ask your boss to switch to emailing you

    Oh really? What a shame, it would encourage more people to move to iphone from BB, like me :)

    Download Whatsapp, and tell your boss to download the app for his BB.
    Very similar to BBM and it works very well... It has push so the app does not have to open to receive messages, been using it alot recently with BB users...
    Congrats to the developer...
