BBM gone after OS update.

[ Edited ]

After buying my Blackberry Storm through Verizon, I deleted the Blackberry Messenger so I would have more memory on my phone. I thought that after updating my phone from the wireless upgrade (.148), that BBM would re-install onto my phone, but it has not. I have a mac, so I am not able to reload the application through the Desktop Manager. I have found the over-the-air link on the blackberry.com/messenger site, but it only supports devices 4.0 and 4.2, i believe. Since my phone is on 4.7, I was wondering if there were any other options so that I could get BBM back onto my phone. Thanks!

find a PC friend and install the OS from his computer.
