Re: BBM and Video Chat on the Playbook?

Thanks for the link to the new versions.  As i am in the unpaved portion of the 'internet superhighway (Afghanistan) the appstore doesn't work here.

Re: BBM and Video Chat on the Playbook?

No worries.  As others have said before it's in the App Store, but I've found many times either by carrier, or device (OS versions affect this as well) it can be extremely unreliable.  I will say that the App store on the PlayBook itself is much more reliable primarily because RIM has full control over it.  I just hope it stays that way.

 

 

Good luck to you.

Ah. Well, that would have been helpful to know up front... yes, AppWorld is not supported in Afghanistan as the carriers there have not signed agreements with RIM (among other issues, I guess).

Re: BBM and Video Chat on the Playbook?

Would anyone happen to know where (Aside from the App Store) I can find the latest version of Messenger?  Or the .cod files and I can apply them myself  (Thank you BBSAK).  Afghanistan doesn't like technology or BlackBerry.  It's always a struggle to find BB apps that I like third party and even tougher to find the vendor's site sometimes.

He meant a non AppWorld link Smiley Happy

You might want to try BBM6 from the BlackBerry Beta Zone:

I'm not sure if you could get it being in Afghanistan, but it is worth a shot.
