How to add ppl to BBM on BB Curve 8520 ?

Okay so now I am trying to set up BBMessenger ...

 

I downloaded an update for it last night but now cannot find it in my phone. Where can I find and access BBM?

Also when I do access it, how can I add my friend to BBM? Do I need a pin for BBM? Does my friend need a PIN for BBM? I am so confused, lol ...

First, look for the BlackBerry Messenger in your Instant Messages folder, if you have one, Applications folder. Find it?

 

To add a friend, in BBM, press the Menu key > Add a contact, and try using the other person's PIN to add. That's the easiest and surest way to connect with your buddy.

 

or give your friend your PIN, to invite you.

 

You PIN can be found at Options > Status, or in any email or text message, type "mypin" and press the space key, with out the quote marks.

I looked in both folders and do not see that anywhere ...

 

Am I doing something wrong?

ok, look at Options > Applications (or Options > Advanced > Applications).

 

Do you see it listed in the apps or Add-On apps?
