BBM Paused In Less Than 24hrs Of Its Release by Gbyte(m): 1:44am On Sep 22, 2013
Prior to launching BBM for Android, an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app was posted online. The interest and enthusiasm we have seen already – more than 1.1 million active users in the first 8 hours without even launching the official Android app – is incredible. Consequently, this unreleased version caused issues, which we have attempted to address throughout the day.

Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s ready and we know it will live up to your expectations of BBM. We are pausing the global roll-out of BBM for Android and iPhone. Customers who have already downloaded BBM for iPhone will be able to continue to use BBM. The unreleased Android app will be disabled, and customers who downloaded it should visit www.BBM.com to register for updates on official BBM for Android availability.

As soon as we are able, we will begin a staggered country roll-out of BBM for Android and continue the roll-out of BBM for iPhone. Please follow @BBM on Twitter for the latest updates and go to www.BBM.com to sign-up for updates about BBM for Android and iPhone. These issues have not impacted BBM service for BlackBerry.

Something as specific as a messenger from a particular platform should be gotten only from the owners . Why the rush?
I'm just imaging 3 months from now , most people will have it and some already tired of it.
.
But the truth is that the ones that are rushing it never use BBM before and were silently envious of the BB owners , now that BBM is on for everyone , they are so quick to dump their touted whatsapp.

I heard BBM for Iphone came out in India first, but people started complaining that it had issues, only for Blackberry to come out and label it an "unofficial version."
They knew lots of people would be waiting for this app, why didn't they prepare well before hand. I don't blame them, they just lost billion and cut over 3000 jobs, somebody had to get back at them!!!

No you're wrong! Maybe you're looking at it from the Nigerian angle... But the truth is, among Smartphones, there is no official Messenger app, and Whatsapp is the only thing close to that title, but everybdy knws they are using the "trial version" and would have to start paying after a year! Imagine!!
But BBM is popular, very popular, OMG very very popular!!! I mean it's much beta and secure, than Whatsapp where anyone with your no can send u a msg, until u block them.
With BBM, smartphones would have an official Messenger app. It's no wonder that over 1 million people downloaded the unofficial release in just hours.

Just correcting the words in bold, not everybody is using a trial version of whatsapp, iPhone users paid for whatsapp, ask any iPhone users, we pay for whatsapp from the very first day before we even install it.....

The words in bold is not actually the truth, I am among the first people to have BBM on my iPhone and I can tell you that I've always had a BB since 2010, only don't like the fact that I have the phone just because of the app;BBM, i feel its not worth buying a phone because of an app, and that forced me to have a BB with my iPhone, but now that I have BBM on my iPhone, I sold the BB yesterday and I can now move about with JUST ONE phone and it would do everythin for me, including the BBM

WOW!! shocked shocked

You sold your BB so quick. Smart dude.

You are incorrect. Whatsapp has about 300 million active users, and bbm has about 40 million. Google it out for yourself. Whatsapp is way more popular.
And Whatsapp yearly price is just 0.99 dollars(1 dollar approx). That's FREE if you ask me.
Vibre is even more popular than bbm, with over 200 million users.

And ur inaccurate again. BBM has neva been on anyoda platform outside Blackberry, hence u can not say it is not popular.
Also I said there is no official messenger app being used on all OSs, therefore I hinted dat BBM would be a massive hit in d app markets. True 0.99 dollars is pretty cheap, but they keep updating there app, and if the update takes to long to get to u, the app will eventually tell u dat ur using a version dats "too old".
Also note dat Whatsapp is more popular in developing countries dan in developed ones.
