struggling to load BBM on my Blackberry Bold.

I bought a brand new Blackberry bold 9000. I cannot access the BBM service as apparatly it is not preloaded. The local service provider (SingTel) in Singapore say they cannot help. How is it that BBM is not preloaded on this expensive phone. Can someone help? Thx

Re: struggling to load BBM on my Blackberry Bold.

Hi there!


Interesting -- I too thought the BBM is a core application that the carriers could not block out. Interesting.


There are a couple of ways to try and get it...via the BB update site:



Or via your installed Desktop Software -- the application loader should show it with a tic box that is unchecked...run through that, but check the box and it should install.
