BlackBerry intends to keep regular BBM for free on BlackBerry and other platforms. The company is monetizing the service through sponsored BBM advertisements planted in your Feed.

However, there’s currently no way to subjugate the ads and remove them. You might be stuck seeing the same ad in your BBM Feed for weeks. This begs the question of whether or not consumers would be willing to pay to avoid such ads and gain access to additional “BBM Plugins.”

Imagine a service model where you could keep BBM free and ad supported. But, you could also have the ability to pay a low fee to remove the ads and have extended features. Perhaps, a “BBM Pro” account could have increased security (like BBM Protected), include all available BBM Stickers packs, and more.

The possibilities are endless for BBM and Channels. Vote in our poll below and let us know in the comments if you’d be willing to pay for a better BBM experience.
