Re: BB 9790 BBM connecting problem

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Like many things, BBM is a proprietary-BB service, and requires subscription to an adequate data plan to activate it, regardless of the pathway used (carrier data network versus WiFi) to access it. Since you let your data plan lapse, the services associated with it also lapsed...including your access to BBM.

Good luck!
