Re: bbm lost

Have you been able to get to and past the BlackBerry ID login screen?

Re: bbm lost

Powered on, remove the battery for a minute, reinstall and reboot. 

Now try BBM  again

Re: bbm lost

Took the batt out, when it powered back on it just said "setting up bb id, then setting up bbm" and it went right back to the blue screen. I'm not seeing anything to reinstall or reboot

Re: bbm lost

Everyone in this thread, try this procedure:

 

  • (OS6 and OS7 devices) From Options > Device > Application Management, delete BlackBerry Messenger, (or On OS5 devices), go to Options > Advanced > Applications, and delete BlackBerry Messenger.
  • 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.
  • Then, after reboot, using the BlackBerry browser, go to www.blackberry.com/bbm and reinstall BBM.
  • Try the setup again.

 

If it works, good. If not, try connecting with your WiFi connection ON, or try with your WiFi off.

Did you do what I said above?

If you see the BBM icon on screen, and are getting that error you mentioned, it is installed. You need to follow my directions above.
