    Have several friends with Blackberrys that use Messenger but they won't send texts.

    Is there an app that allows Droid to connect with BB Messenger

    Short answer - no, and never will be compatible.

    Only BB's can be on BBM. You have to have access to RIM's infrastructure and that's not possible without a PIN and a BB data plan.

    Best bet is to get your friends to use another messaging app that is cross-platform but that doesn't sound likely in your case if they won't even text.
