    Question About BBM going Cross-Platforn and being free...

    Does this mean that BBM won't need an active BIS subscription(For OS 7.1)? I switched over to WP a while ago and seeing as how there will be no BBM for WP8, I was hoping I could use my old Bold 9780 for BBM over wi-fi and hotspot without a sim,

    Is this possible? Also, will it be the same for OS 6.0 devices?

    No.

    The BIS subscription will still be needed for any device running 7.1 or lower. If you want BBM, you will need an iPhone, Android, BB10 device, or a legacy device connected to BIS.

    As to your 2nd part of the question, I'm not sure what you're asking regarding OS 6.0

    As stated above by AVPTI, if you're using a BlackBerry device running OS 7.1 or lower, you will still need BIS to use BBM.
