After researching after a while I've reached the conclusion that there are currently no APIs for BBM 5.0. This means that there is no way that I can integrate my application with BlackBerry Messenger.
My question is, even if there were APIs, would RIM ever allow applications to delete BBM contacts programmatically?
The reason I'm asking is because I just launched my application and some competition is claiming that its a "virus that deletes BBM contacts". I know that is absolutely impossible and I was hoping that someone could confirm that.

Pretty sure you can't do anything to BBM specifically, though there are API's to use the underlying protocols outside of BBM.
Given that you can't listen or send BBM messages it seems unlikely you'd be able to delete contacts. Though you could use keyboard events perhaps.

There is no way for a third party application to delete contacts from BlackBerry Messenger. Such APIs do not currently exist.
