There is no Windows client for BlackBerry Messanger. This is because BlackBerry Messanger sends messages using the PIN number of devices. Since Windows doesn't have a PIN number it cant communicate. It would be nice if this was an option but alas its not.
The closest thing I have found is the Web2Pin site. You can send PIN messages from your PC web browser. However you can not receive the replys.

I know this is kind of an old topic, but I've been doing some thinking about this lately. Google voice does something like this, where I can send/receive messages right from my desktop. Very nice when I'm at the office. It wouldn't be difficult to make a server/client app that does this, the trick is getting it to/from BlackBerry. Can you intercept messages from BlackBerry Messenger in a similar way you can for SMS? And can you send BlackBerry Messenger messages programatically? If so, I could probably make this happen.

The interesting thing is, I think there is already a way for the internet to talk to the PIN network.
Recenty we were doing work in a country where we had no cell access, but had Wifi Access and BBM's were coming through, but the phone was not on any network.
Even if the Blackbery Desktop Client could do it... for example, let you send PIN's from an interface when your phone was pluged in.
I'm suprised that this product hasnt been offered previously or as part of BES or something else.

I think a desktop version of blackberry messenger would be really, really nice. And useful. And nice. And useful. Hahaha... I'm really looking forward to it

Guys. Come on, I am desperate! I need BBM on my Mac. Who will write this first? Is there nothing out there yet? Even a controller app for my Blackberry on my Mac will do, as long as it will handle BBM as well. Anything, anyone!

In my case, when i use BlackBerry as an internet modem, I can't recieve notifications of BBM messages. But when I disconnect the mobile internet, I receive them.
I would like BBM to work, when, while, and at the same time I use the BlackBerry as a modem.
