Re: How do I buy BBM

You can buy either weekly or monthly pass

Weekly £2

Monthly £5

text either week or month to 789030

you will receive a text back and then you simply need to restart your phone

 

Merry Christmas

You need to ring up orange and ask them to set up bbm for you. They will do it then tell you to take the battery out and leave it out for a few seconds then put it back in and it will work :Rolleyes:

Re: How do I buy BBM

You don't pay for bbm, you pay for BIS, (Blackberry Internet Service) with allows you to use all BB services, including bbm.  Phone T-mobile and ask them to activate your BIS (Blackberry Internet Service), this will cost you £5 per month, if you are on PAYG phone, this will be taken from your credit every month, so if you are on PAYG, make sure you have over £5 credit because if you don;t have enough credit when BB come to take the money out, they will cancel your BIS subscription, and you'll have to phone t-mobile to re-activate it again.
