BBM Option - On/Off or Sign In/Out + Remove read "R" icon?

More Privacy options please!
- Pls. create an easy on/off button or sign in/out option for BBM? People don't care about the "busy" icons or status... Sometimes I just want it off..!
- Pls. remove of give us the option to remove the "R" symbol that shows that you read a bbm? Sometimes I don't have time to read it, but click on it by accident and the person gets upset 'cause I "read" the message and didn't reply!

If you agree, pls. click "like" below?

Re: BBM Option - On/Off or Sign In/Out + Remove read "R" icon?

I agree completely. RIM, please!

(Having said said that, what I do is...
1) Go to Networks & Connections
2) I click on "Mobile Connections"
3) Then I set my "Data Services" ro "OFF"

That disables your Blackberry Internet Services, meaning no Internet, no emails & no bbms / whatsapp... When someone sends you a bbm, it does not even "D".

This give me privacy when I'm with my family or working. My phone still rings when called...

Having said that: a "BUSY" status is ok, but an "OFFLINE" status disabling your BBM only, still letting your Internet work, would be GREAT!
