BBM on 2 different smartphones

I have 1 bbm username and ID set up for 2 different phones, both 9900`s. Since i updated BBM to enable voice, i can only use 1 device at a time for BBM, the screen says           "another device with the same username/ ID is registered, do you want to switch devices"     we are unable to send BBM messages to each other. Can anyone advise please.

Re: BBM on 2 different smartphones

Hello darbo, 


Welcome to the forums. 


With BlackBerry Messenger 7.0, your BlackBerry Messenger contacts, profile, and groups are automatically backed up over the wireless network based on your BlackBerry ID. What this means is that if you use your BlackBerry ID on a device your BlackBerry Messenger information will be transferred to that device. The only way to get around this is to create a new BlackBerry ID for your second device and then manually input the BlackBerry Messenger contacts.
