Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot. A reboot in this manner is prescribed for most glitches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.

Re: BBM temp server error?

Hi there,


I have had the same problem since updating. I've done everything you've suggested on many of the similar forums:

- Deleting and re-installing bbm and then doing a reboot

- Taking the battery out, waiting a few mins and putting it back in

- Trying to set up BBM using just the WiFi connection or just the mobile network connection.


None of these steps have solved the problem. What can I do next?
