Unable to download BBM on 8520 Curve



I recently got a link from my friend for BBM 7. I installed it but later on I was not able to see the icon. I deleted the BBM from my device via Settings-->Application. But now when I visit BB< website or appworld it shows BBM 7 which can not be installed on 8520 Curve.


Please help me in getting old version 6 installed.

Re: Unable to download BBM on 8520 Curve

Hi gagantalwar,

BBM 7.0 is released for 6.0 and above OS version. You'll have to wait till next year for OS version 5.0.
