So I heard thru the news that BlackBerry's BBM is shutting down their consumer version next month. I could see this happening. I used blackberry since 2008. I loved it. I had a business and at the time no other phone offered what blackberry had. It was great. I even started using BBM long before it became mainstream and loved it. I did see it declining in usage when people left blackberry for a android or (yikes) an iPhone. Then other messaging apps like iMessage and WhatsUpp came out and that helped to lower bbms popularity. Bbm finally came to android but it was too little too lait they could not recover. I finally logged in for the last time and permanently deleted my Blackberry ID permanently.
