Re: bbm update

Hi Sharon77

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

This newer version of BBM integrates with your our BlackBerry ID that we have set on that device , You have to remember the Correct username and the password associated  with that device , By the way is it a used device or a new one ?

Re: bbm update

Hi sharon77

 

 

Can you try to reset your password once again , check this knowledge base :  KB26361  :How to change or reset a BlackBerry ID password.

 

Also do you have a backup of your device ? I fear because If your device did not  accept the username then you have to wipe it and  have to use a new BlackBerry ID.

 

So please try to reset your password and try that again.

Re: bbm update

Re: bbm update

Hi sharon77

 

 

As I suspected ! if it not a used device then someone might have  changed the BlackBerry ID on that device, So if you are unable to recall anything you have to reset it , If you are using BlackBerry Protect you can restore your data from there . please follow this Knowledge Base for futher help :

 

KB26694 : How to change the BlackBerry ID on a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or BlackBerry smartphone.

 

 

Please try it and let us know if you feel any problem.

Hey Sharon77

 

 

Sorry but I am a huge BlackBerry® lover as your son is   :smileyhappy:   The Knowledge Base I suggested above its is enough to resolve your issue , but still if you want to reset it to factory setting then try any of those Knowledge Base :

 

KB31291 :  How to reset a BlackBerry smartphone to factory settings using BlackBerry Desktop Software

 

KB18998  :  How to reset the BlackBerry smartphone to factory defaults.

 

Good luck .
