Altogether. The BBMessenger service moves on the RIM network only and without any link with the RIM network, not a BBM.

It is a fairly common question in the Forum here, to what services a does NOT have a BlackBerry data Plan.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones BBM groups question

    I need help with a problem, that I've had since the end of the week - I was fired on a group of 18 members BBM Sunday evening after re-, I've invited a friend who had also driven. I contacted one of the admins yesterday to invite me again, and he said that I was still on its list of active members and therefore re-can not invite me, and his attempts to retire have failed (apparently, this happens all the time). So now I'm a member of a group that I can't see, read or participate in and cannot get back in. Anyone has any advice on what we should? I already tried to uninstall BBM and it did not work. Thank you.

    He, the Admin, can't remove you (so that it can re - invite you) If you get stuck for the moment. Give him one day and see if you do not fall the group so it can invite you.

    Or then, maybe he remove you as a trial BBM THEN contact, by clicking on your name in the list of the members of the group so that it will re-establish the connection with you. There is a message "you are not connected with the Member' or 'invitations to the group.

  • Smartphones BBM blackBerry problem please help me.

    I am updating my bbm to 7 then when I click on "combining bbm with your blackberry id" appears it stuck there., I waited for hours but nothing happens, before when I use it, but when I updated it stuck there. What should I do so that I can use my bbm again? I can't uninstall it because it is a basic app.

    I also had the same problem. First of all, you should check if you have 6 OS or the OS 7.0 / 7.1 on your device. If more, BBM 7.0 does not work.

    2. uninstall / remove the BBM existing and without work on our device.

    3. save the device, and then restart.

    4. install a clean version of BBM 7 using the key code.

    5. do not start / launch BBM 7.0.

    6. restart the devide again.

    7 launch BBM 7.0 and enable wireless. Now the problem I would make is that BlackBerry ID was not be launched. However, after 4-5 hours, got ID connected and the 7.0 BBM started working.

    If the problem persists, then I suggest to install the backup on the device and wait the good version available as and when in your country.

    See you soon.

  • Smartphones BBM blackBerry backup

    BBM backup option does not appear.

    When I go to the main BBM screen, click the option, the backup option does not even show the option to restore.

    How can I move the option backup of BBM.

    PS: I use BES.

    You use BBM 7.0?

    With the new version of BBM, now you need not backup/restore your groups of contacts/manually! They are automatically saved and stored in your BlackBerry ID.

  • Problem of Smartphones BBM blackBerry after upgrade 'do not associate.

    My son has been promtpted to do an upgrade on its 9320 Tuesday after doing so now its BBM is non fucntioning. It is permenantly trying to 'associate the Blackberry ID with the phone' and never connects.

    There remove the update App and reloading. We checked his Blackberry ID and he is OK with the password. He tried to remove the 7.0 upgrade and an earlier version, but when he tried to find I have to load it, it loaded automatically the version 7.0.

    Nothing seems to work, and after three days, it is extremely frustrating.

    Solutions please?

    How it can remove it and find a version that works? If he goes to Appworld to try to load a previous version, it loads just the version 7.0. How do you find a previous version? Is there one online you can download?

    Try to install this from your phone's browser:
    Is BBM 6.2
    You can see other versions here as well:
    I hope this helps!

  • Smartphones Ringtone blackBerry question, delayed

    I just got my Blackberry Curve - my first Smartphone - and for love or money, I don't know how to change the ringtone.  Profiles, or the phone icon seem to allow me to do anything except make it stronger, softer or vibrate.  Yet, I found the ringtones in the part 'media' of the phone.  How can I choose one of these cooler to be general ringtones?

    On your device, press menu, profiles, scrool up to advanced, normal or one who is active and yo can change the sounds for each application.

  • Smartphones BBM blackBerry service

    I was wondering if the BB Messenger service is free in Sweden? Telenor is my ISP.

    I can BBM with my friends in other countries for free?

    Yes, it's "free" insofar as once you pay for your Internet Service package door basis, there is no payment, no message payload.

    Thus, you must first have the BlackBerry data Plan on your mobile service provider account.
