He mostly tends to give outright no's very frequently...And if it is a no then why exactly.No one has much to discuss about bbm ,
seldom do i see any clearing of points as happened in a previous post i posted about the same. :-)

Re: How to save BBm chats programmatically

BBM is by design a secure communications method.  For example, there is no way from an Application program you can request a list of all the BBM contacts.  The only thing that you can request is a list of BBM contacts that have your app.  And there is no way you can get at the chats that the user is having - again you can only see chats that are within your own application. 

 

Giving the ability to save BMM chat to an application program (and presumably then interrogate it) would get round this sort of security, for example, you might be able to figure out from the chat data, the ids of people that your user talks to that don't have your app. 

 

Mark has told you that there is no supported method of doing this.  And while I agree with you that sometimes you can get to things via non supported methods, in this case I think your chances of finding a non supported method are 0.

 

OK?
