Re: getting bbm

If you use restore your BBM contact list to a new BB it should update on all your contact's BB devices. If you were using the latest version of BBM that required a BBID login then you need only login on a new device and it will update, as well.

Re: getting bbm

In addition, if your daughter is still receiving the BBM messages on her device, you will need to perform a security wipe on her phone. To do this, go to Options > Security > Security Wipe and follow the steps to wipe the personal data from the phone. Once this process is complete, she will be able to set up the phone for herself.

If you still can't get things to work correctly, please post back with the device info (e.g. your BlackBerry model numbers) and we can try to offer some more suggestions if needed.

If you want to thank someone for their comment, do so by clicking the Thumbs Up icon.
