Stop! Fingers away from the BBM!

Hey, we're all friends on BBM but dudes, ignore the bogus broadcast message.

It's a hoax.

Here's how the note reads:
This is the real broadcast from BlackBerry© All rights reserved. Broadcast this message to every single contact on your BBM© We need our active users to re-send this message to everyone on your contact list in order to confirm our active users that use BlackBerry Messenger, if you do not send this message to all your BlackBerry Messenger contacts by 12pm EST tonight then your acount will remain inactive with the consequence of losing all your contacts.
RIM says:
A hoax chain BBM message is currently circulating. This did not originate from RIM and we recommend that you simply ignore it and please do not forward it. Thanks for your support.
Your first clue? The broadcast message is riddled with grammatical and spelling errors. It wasn't sent from some anxious RIM executive rapidly typing with one thumb as he speeds down the 401 towards Waterloo. Your BBM is safe.

I don't care, I still love my BB. They just seem to be more "mature" than an iphone.

Me too. I just like that photo.
Best blackberry system interruption I've read so far? Chuck Norris had phone sex. It's taken BlackBerry three days to recover.
