By |March 25th, 2015|5 Comments

Once upon a time I thought of BBM as just ‘fancy texting’. Many of my friends had BlackBerry’s but we texted. I didn’t really see the point in BBM – frankly, I didn’t understand it and neither did they. I used to visit CrackBerry and people would go on and on and on about BBM […]
