bbm detail

I want to know if you can get bbm details from your phone supplier through your monthly bill? Ie: we all get text, calls and picture message details of when called/text and to what number etc, but nothing shows for bbm messages. Can this be done?? Stuart

Re: bbm detail

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Well, with enough time and money, pretty much anything can be done. But, it would actually be up to your provider to say if/how they can do this.

I suspect not...from the perspective of things that can be tracked, I think that BBM is intermingled in with other "pure data" stuff. They would have to figure a way to segregate out pure BBM traffic, capture and store that usage, and then report it out to their customers on their monthly billing cycle. Sounds rather challenging to convince a carrier, already probably strapped to maximize shareholder value, to spend money on something like that.

But, again, it's a question for your carrier.

Good luck!

Re: bbm detail

maybe you can find a third party app on your 8530 that will log all your BBM Activity.
