I have a 64gb PB with 2.0.358 os. I bridge to a 9650. When I bridge, all functions work as advertised except my BBM. I can send/recv SMS/MMS to non-BB users thru BBM on my 9650, but my PB BBM wants me to invite contacts as if I don't have contacts already. I thought bridging with my smartphone would allow me to use existing contacts, but not happening. I love my BB 9650 and plan to upgrade to 9900 (Verizon) or hold out for BB10 phone, so not having full BBM function is disappointing. I hope you can help.

Thanks for that bit of bad news. Current bridge app needs to be updated to allow broader BBM access. I am sure there are a lot of BB users with non-BB friends and if PB bridging does not get an update that will allow communication with non-BB users, RIM can expect more users to jump ship to other platforms. RIM techies get with program, we love our BB and PB and want to "snub" our non- BB friends into being being envious of what our PB and BB can do and their's can't. Not happening yet.
