Yes, direct messages will work just fine. Why would she not want to update her BBM?

Pretty simple, she uses her BlackBerry browser to go www.blackberry.com/blackberrymessenger and upgrade.

 

Nothing to search for.

Re: Can an older version of blackberry messenger still talk to a person with a newer version

I have a blackberry 7290 wich had the BBM installed and ik worked fine. Trying to upload a new laguage for my phone I updated the version, but my BMM  dissapeared. Is there a way I can get my BBM back, I went to the mobile BB site, but is not letting download. I just need to get a version compatible with my OS  v4.1.0.377 platform 1.8.0.154 If you could give a solution would be awesome. Thanks in  advance.

Yes, I have, but is telling me that, my device is not supported. I have an old device Blackberry 7290. Do you think is possible to get a MMB version fo this handset?

Re: Can an older version of blackberry messenger still talk to a person with a newer version

Yes, I read the device model.

 

I don't know what MMB is.

 

Connect your 7290 to the desktop PC and run the BlackBerry Desktop Software.

If you you have your 7290 operating system installed on your PC, you can then click on the APPLICATIONS and then reload the BBMessenber application.
