PBook and Z10 Video Chat WOW :)

Hi all

I dont know where to post I choose here but i would like  to post or to share with the Z10 forum as well

PLEASE admin . and Mods ..

.can you share  or post  with everybody.else ..

thanks... in the mean time I will post on my local forum



any whoo

Im the proud and Lucky owner of a Z10  and 2 Playbooks ( no complains at all)


and here is a little info  of how  all started...


I have 2 little girls  9 and 10   and they  where playing with the PBs around the house doing the video chat

and while they were hiding in places..

then I thought wouldnt be nice if you can chat with the Z10 the same way?????

well  one day I grabbed one PB


* I opened video chat:

* I add a New contact :

* name -  last name :   Z10   -   BB

* then I enter the Z10 Pin :      548XXXCD


then click .....save

then right there hit to connect with the Z10  and BANG ...I got the video call on my Z10 Wohhohooo


well it was an 80 % connection.. and the  voice was choppy... some times freezing

Maybe because the Z10 and that  one  PB share the same BB-id .?? and E-mail ??

.My wife took the other PB to a trip.. cant try right now,


THEN I went to the Z10

open contacts:

add new one:

Name - last name  ---     PLay  Book

PB pin:   --------------------  2434XXX



opened BBm and invite contact...  sent the invite..


well it didnt work ....Smiley Sad  Im still waiting on the acceptance  wich I never receiven on the PB


I tried  outside ,inside the house and around the Block ,

with BBm close  and BBm opened


worked fantastic..well for that little bit that worked.....

no need to be on the same  page like Skype or other video chat..


so far only from PlayBook cam make a call to the Z10 / BBm

but I cant from the Z10 to the PBSmiley Sad


 PLease try if you have  a PB and Z10

its a fantastic way to connect with a native app instead a thirds party


I would like to know how to fix this..


I need some expert advice thanks..


should we push Blackberry to do something about it ??


or a good app for this????
