    "Private" BBM

    Is there a way to make bbm messages appear unread or unopened. Also, anyway to it so the person that sends you a bbm not get the "D" for delivered or the "R" for read?

    Thanks!

    if you go to messages but do not click on the new message in the preview field you will be able to see the message or atleast in part depending on the lentgh of it. the other side will not get the "r" until you open the message. however this does not solve your delivery hiding. i believe bbm was desgned to provide these features for the purpose of confirming delivery and recipt in a bussiness enviornment where it is important that you know everything is delivered and read correctly.

    not sure if there is a full work around for this but that is the best i have been able to do. when i dont want someone to know when i've read something i just use sms. lol just make up a lie that bbm is having problems. with the way bis has been lately they pretty much have to believe you. haha

    If you turn off your connections prior to opening the BBM message, it won't send a read receipt to the sender. This might be a bit annoying if you're constantly doing it, but it seems to work great when you REALLY don't want the sender to know that you've read their message.

    and if you read...then turn connection back on? will it not deliver the confirmation?

    If you take it out immediately after getting a message it does open. If you don't take it out of the holster for a while, then it won't do this.

    I have not seen a way to change this.

    I guess waiting 20 seconds or so will prevent the auto open. It is a pain!
