On your Curve, install the BlackBerry Bridge, you can either use AppWorld or in the Playbook setup go to the BlackBerry Bridge and use the setup, you will find the QR barcode, just scan it and it will take you to the download for the the bridge. 

 

After the bridge is installed you will be able to pair the Playbook and the phone, and from there will be able to use the BBM

I have the bridge connected on my phone and playbook, but when I open it on my playbook it won't open messages or bbm etc. :smileysad:

On the phone, in the Bridge go to the Device Property, inside make sure that the BBM, Message and any other options that you want is check mark, this should enable them. 

 

If it does not work, try a battery pull on the phone, and a restart on the Playbook.
