Re: Associating BBM with you Blackberry ID

Hello emone


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



I assume you have BlackBerry Data Plan / BIS already on your account , if not then call you carrier to activate that. it fix your current  issues with BBM7.


If you already have that ( BIS ) on your account then you can try this to see if that help . First On your Homescreen go to Options > Device > Application Management > Delete BlackBerry Messenger from the list ,

Then perform a Battery pull restart by removing the Battery while your device is Powered On wait for a min. then re-insert it back.After reboot from your BlackBerry Browser browse to  www.blackberry.com/bbm and the most recent available for your device .After reinstalling see if that helps
