Re: problem with bbm 7

Hello east_site and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Sorry to hear you're having a BBM issue.


To clarify, you purchased a 2nd hand device and the previous owners BlackBerry ID was still associated to the device? If you go to Options>Device>BlackBerry ID is it your information that appears or the previous owners?


Did you backup your device data at all or your BBM Contacts before you upgraded?
