    Do you miss BBM chat rooms with your friends from your phone, after switching to an iPhone from a BlackBerry? I think it would be cool if iPhone had something similar to BBM.

    well, I went the other direction (iPhone -> BB), but I know I would miss BBM. It's just too awesome.

    Nope, but I never used BBM. All I did was text. I guess I might've used it if I'd had more time to do stuff like that, but it seemed like when I did have that kind of time on my hands I was at home anyway and more inclined to just use my laptop instead.

    I used BBM pretty frequently before I switched to the iPhone, but I don't really miss it. You could always use Ping! if you really do miss it.

    Been using BB for four years, and still do along with my iPhone. I have never used BBM. I just use regular texting and I have no problems. Besides, when you have friends not using BB it's sort of pointless.

    No... the only reason I liked BBM was for threaded messages, which the iphone has.........

    no, because I never used it. Didn't have no one to use it with. I just mainly texted on there.

    Of course the majority of people are going to say no, there's plenty of bias in here.

    Well I had Storm, and the only other person who had a Blackberry I knew was my uncle. Sorry I don't want to message my uncle like that.

    My cousins had Blackberry's but I don't even know if they used it.

    I mainly text.

    No because when I had my Blackberry no one else I knew had one, so it was useless.
