BBM Format

I just added BBM onto my blackberry which i have had for a while. The format of the BBM is very different from the other format I have seen. How can I get the newer format for BBM?

While I can't have any way of knowing what you've seen...


You can open your BlackBerry Messenger app > Menu key > Options and choose different view formats for your Messenger.


You can always upgrade to the latest version of BBM. Use your BlackBerry browser to go to www.blackberry.com/messenger and download/install the latest version of BBM.
