It is very complex. You need a device with BBM, and other app posting messages to BBM and exposing API to your PHP.

If I wrote an app for a blackberry could I post messages out of the app automatically. I have the skilks to code if all, I'm just not sure how open source the BBM module would be. Thanks

BBM is available only in blackberry, so you need to make some external connection e.g. picking messages from PHP and confirming sending them.

that's what I thought you meant. I just need to know if the BBM SDK would allow background generated message to be sent to existing BBM buddies?

BBM API provides such functionality, so it is up to you to make a blackbery-based bridge that interacts with your webserver pulling messages from there and actually send them via BBM
