It’s no secret that Blackberry has been in a rut lately. They seemingly started getting out of that by monetizing the BBM app and putting ads in feeds and invites, not disrupting the chatting experience but certainly disturbing for some people.

So if you’re like me and you find the ads bothersome, you might have an out soon for a fee [-__-]. BlackBerry is reportedly testing a version of BBM which would be subscription based and ad-free.

In addition to that, BlackBerry is also testing out a new paid service, that would let you pick a custom “vanity” PIN for your BBM instead of being assigned one.

Both features are now available to users in the BlackBerry beta zone, but aren’t functional as of right now.

So would you pay not to see ads at all in your BBM or have a customized vanity PIN?
