BlackBerry Messenger 7.0.0.126 availability

 

 

Device Information:

BlackBerry Bold 9780 OS ver. 6.0.0.706  , BIS

BlackBerry Curve 9220 OS ver. 7.1.0.746 , BIS

 

Hi Forums Members

 

I am from eastern part of India and I had a little problem, Heard the rumor  that BBM has been Updated and the new features it has BBM Voice call over WI -FI , So I thought I should Update my BBM from ver.6.1.0.55 to the ver.7.0.0.126 ,But 

 

First on app world I getting this error Captura on 12-11-2012 19-22-33.jpg

 

 

 

 

And when I try   www.blackberry.com/bbm from my BlackBerry Browser I am receiving  this error :

 

 

                                                          Captura on 12-11-2012 18-31-24.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now I wonder is this newer version is limited to specific countries or specific devices. Because when I search I find my devices are compatible with this application but not able to download this version ,So anyone from India who can confirm if they are able to download this newer version of BBM. Also I would like any if  member of our Community Forums how can Guide me if they are aware of this issue.

 

I really like to use this new feature ( BBM Voice call for free over Wi-Fi ) on my BlackBerry Smartphone. Anyone ?

Re: BlackBerry Messenger 7.0.0.126 availability

Hello,

 

Here's the AppWorld catalog page:

In the section related to "Supported Countries", India is not listed...I can only guess as to "why", but normally this has to do with governmental restrictions in that country. There likely are some features of the new BBM that India has not yet approved.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: BlackBerry Messenger 7.0.0.126 availability

Hi sdgardne

 

 

                        Thanks for the quick response ! I noticed India is not in supported country list , though I had not deleted BBM from my devices but I am worried about those users who have deleted BBM from there device and now they are unable to download it from any sources, don't know how much time it will take to resolve this issue.Once again I fear Indian users will be deprived from such wonderful application of RIM.

 

I will wait till tomorrow to see if I get any Update from app world.

 

 

Prince

Re: BlackBerry Messenger 7.0.0.126 availability

I have seen (but not saved) links on various posts here to prior BBM versions. Also, one has the ability, via the Desktop Software, to fall back to the BBM version that was included with the OS package chosen.

There are many many posts with issues about this new BBM version...it will be interesting to see what this week holds in that regard.

Good luck!

Hi cerati9

 

 

Thanks but will take the risk if available in our country because I have the backup using both BlackBerry desktop software and also BlackBerry Protect  to do Device backup.
