Hi Neelm


Welcome to BlackBerry Support 



Which version of BBM you have Installed on your device , Currently on our device we need the most recent version of BlackBerry ID software.   , first reboot your device by removing the battery while your device is Powered On after reboot  If earlier you're trying over your mobile network then if you can locate a wifi and switch to wifi.


Finally, BlackBerry ID for BlackBerry Smartphone running BlackBerry 6:


1. From the home screen of the BlackBerry, click the Options icon.

2. Choose Third Party Applications.

3. Choose BlackBerry ID

4. Press the Menu Key 

5 Click on Check for Update .


Try it and see if that helps.
