The Million dollar question: Installed BBM on Android & iOS but no one to chat???

As soon as the BBM for Android and iOS came on their respective app stores, people jumped to download it on their devices out of curiosity to know whats new BBM has to offer in a world of Whatsapp, Viber, line and We chat.

Hours after installing BBM,  still my contact list is empty as I have no friends or very few friends who actually use BBM now except those who still use the catholic era Blackberry phones. So, as a user some thoughts came in my mind

The way it handles username and password looks like a thing of past.
Why do I have to still make a BBM account for using BBM as if I am making any gmail or yahoo account, I have to give my contact details and all of  that stuff  just to chat with someone.

In a world of whatsapp or every other chat app today, it requires only your phone number and a sms to verify your identity and you are good to go. Who would like to give all your details just to chat.
Further more, Why do I still need to be assigned a BBM Pin??
The typical setup procedure now a days requires you to just start using your app after verifying your identity through sms and the app will automatically search the people from your contacts who actually use the same application and as a result they all are automatically listed in the contacts section of the app and you can start chatting right away rather than sending the PIN first, then wait for the person's approval.

In today's high tech world, smartphones are the new computers. 
Although a smart phone can never be able to unleash the power of a PC  yet they are the very first devices which are present with the user for all most all time through out the day. Users are now permanently logged into their Facebook, Gtalk applications round the clock via their smartphones to save the headache of entering the passwords again and again and moreover not to miss any message from their loved ones.

The authentication method used by BBM is just so old that you actually feel irritated.Can you believe it still asks me for a secret question in case I forget my password.
I want to ask one question here. How many users of Gmail or Yahoo still remember their secret questions/answers ??...Answers in positive would be very few; and moreover the integration of this absurd and useless feature is not required in a chat app at all. Who would take a headache of remembering some absurd question /password today when we are already flooded with this and that password like banking passwords, credit card passwords, mail passwords etc .

While we can keep name of our wish in every other chat app, BBM still requires a unique user name that is not assigned already to any user as if we are going to sign up for an email application and  somebody would hack in to our account to read with whom we are chatting?
Moreover now a days our emails are already flooded with a plenty of spam mails which we all hate for eg:- A mail from a shopping website, a mail from a new start up social website etc.
If I send invite to someone asking him to join BBM and chat with me, his reply would be
" Are you sick??... I am happy with Whatsapp, I have lot of groups there and already enjoying, why the heck would I install BBM and send invites to everybody.Well, I really  don't care"

Worst of all there is a long queue, even after you have installed BBM, you can not start using it right away, you have to wait for your turn as if some free candies are being distributed and you have to stand in line to grab them. Foolish??.. Isn't it?
 The most likely scenario would be that millions of people  will install BBM on  their Android and iOS out of curiosity but in a short time , either the app will be un-installed or it will remain unused because one ,everyone today is addicted to whatsapp, viber and we chat etc, everybody is already enjoying in some groups there, secondly it is just so behind its time that it is quite a disaster.
