    No, you can't get BBM on an iPhone. You can get similar apps, but you won't be able to communicate with people on BBM unless they have the other app as well.

    BBM on iPhone would probably defeat one of the the only edges Blackberry has on it :P

      Why not just text?

      Anyway, iPhone has whatsapp but iirc you need to pay for it.

      WhatsApp is 59p, IIRC, and is completely free to use after that, you can send free texts, picture messages, voice clips. It searches your phone-book for others who have WhatsApp (so none of this adding friends malarky!), and BB users can download it for 59p too. Essentially packaging emails up as text messages, but it's simple and good, and essentially free.

      If BBM is a dealbreaker for you then you won't find anything similar that's as good on the iPhone. Personally though, I'd get an iPhone.
