As someone whose job requires cycling through all kinds of phones regularly, one of the situations I had to cope with in the past when having a Blackberry smartphone to review was that once it was time to move on, I had to say goodbye to my active contacts on BBM. Dropping a BlackBerry phone for any other device was always a painful transition. Thanks to BBM4All – the availability of BBM on Android and iOS (and soon, Windows Phone) – that painful transition is a thing of the past.
It may not seem like much to some others, but it is a huge matter for me. As long as there is an Android smartphone lying around somewhere, I can migrate to any phone – feature or smart – and not have to worry about losing touch with anyone. I never have to say goodbye on BBM ever again. For BBM4All, here is a big THANK YOU to BlackBerry.
