BBM

Hi I've never needed to use the BBM before now, but as we have bought our daughter a Blackberry for Christmas we are currently setting everything up so its all systems go Christmas day.

I have a 9300 with all details set up for BBM, but I go onto BBM the ID username has one letter missing which I always change, then I input my password, I am now on my 9th chance and dare not try again as I'm unsure what will happen when I've run out of chances, when the password is put in and ok'd I get a message to put in username associated with the device. Is this because there is a letter missing in the original address. All is correct when I look at set up and also online through PC. Just can't get started with phone would love some help

many thanks in anticipation
