It got me so worried because it wasn't a general problem.

If there is a widespread server outage, then you can be sure this will be revealed in status reports below and this rules out issues with your network.

BBM really expanded its user base when they launched on both Android and Apple’s i OS platform.

After googling it, I saw series of forum threads related to the problem. While some claim it is just a via instead of through the BB App World.

I tried to delete the BBM and I was surprised not to see the "delete" option after right-clicking on the BBM icon nor see "Blackberry Messenger" listed under "Application Management).

Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.

When Black Berry Messenger problems strike they will come in different forms that impact users in various ways.

Discover the new BBM and everything it has to offer!

We started with the best messaging features on the planet, introduced privacy features to keep you in control, brought you free voice and video calling, and now we’ve added thousands of stickers and news.

Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted. Update: BBM just sent a push "bulletin" that was a corporate announcement. Still being shown fake "notifications" in-app that are actually ads.

These notifications cannot be disabled and you cannot opt out. Update: Now receiving a few spam invites from foreign countries daily (as well as "invites" from BBM that are actually ads)Update: Signs you out randomly because "you haven't used the app in a while". Update: was again nagged for a review, so here you go.

So, your BBM problems today could be due to the servers going down, or you might not be able to send and add contacts right now.
