Here is the link, but see the notes.

You have to have OS6 to get this version.  OS5 support is in the beta version which I don't think you are using now.

 

You could sign up here and download the beta version

What isn't working?  If you're using a 8520, then you have OS5.  The only way to get bbm with voice is to sign up on the beta zone.

Re: New bbm version not showing in my app world

Hello Ugi4Naz,

Wolf359's last message is technically correct: you can install the beta version of BB7 on your 8520, and benefit from the BBM Voice feature.

That being said :

the beta version of BBM7 that is available for OS5 is specifically a beta version. Meaning the audience that the people who will install that beta version are supposed to be savvy users, who agree to install a beta version (= it will have several bugs), and who are very confortable with it.

Since you do not know what is OS6, I advise you to wait until BBM7 is officially released for your 8520 (= after the beta test is over, in a few days).
