I'm just trying to get started with BBM Voice. BB Messenger v18.104.22.168 is installed. Wi-fi is connected.
When I go into each Contact to send a message I expect to see a BBM Voice icon - grey or green etc but I see no icon. What trick have I missed please.

Welcome to the Community
Sorry for the confusion that this has caused you. There's no problem with your phone. BBM Voice is only available to Blackberry phones OS6 and above. You might have found a contact who uses an older version.

No need to do anything with your phone. If a contact does not have the phone icon for BBM Voice, that means they haven't updated yet or BBM Voice is not compatible with their phone's OS.

Hi Bob thanks for the further response.
I'm sure the person I'm testing it with has the 7.0 OS but he's not in a wifi area at present. I was expecting to see a grey icon for him and the other BB contacts who don't meet both the OS and wifi criteria. Am I right?
Its a pity that RIM don't have the equivalent of Skype's Echo for us to test BBM Voice. With the few BB friends who are really keen that I have, I've no way yet of testing this. But you have to be crazy to do this on Christmas Eve!
Best wishes for from London.
