Re: New Bridge & BBM

I'm having the same problem, and I think there are steps you have to take to make this work.  Try deleting the profiles off the PB and your phone and sync again.  Let me know if this works cause if it doesn't I wont buy the PB yet.

Re: New Bridge & BBM

All I had to do was reboot PB after bridge .83 installed. Was bridge working properly before you install .83?

Re: New Bridge & BBM

No PB update (still on 1710), but both the BBM and Bridge apps were updated in App World. Took a while before the Bridge App would update, and I had to do it through the Desktop on not an OTA update.

Works fine though - Just sent my first BBM from the PlayBook Smiley Happy

Re: New Bridge & BBM

How do you get the update, I tried to delete the apps from my Bold 9700, I tried to use the Desktop Manager the only update it saw was the WIFI media sync, and the Blackberry Bridge is still 1.0.0.76, and my Bold is using OS 6.0 bundle 1879

I'm using the 6.0.0.73 version of BBM from the Blackberry Beta Zone.

 

The updates I used came from BerryReview.com they had the links for

the OS 6 version and OS 5 version on their site.

 

For OS 6: http://bit.ly/Bridge83os6

For OS 5: http://bit.ly/Bridge83os5

 

I had to use Bridge83os5 for my 8530 curve. Hope this helps. I've received several BBM messages and the PB gives a notification and I can open and reply. Works great for me!

Re: New Bridge & BBM

I was finally able to get the update for the bridge, but How do I get the BBM for the playbook, when I re-paired the Bold 9700 and the Playbook the bridge application were all there but not the BBM

 

BTW, the phone already as the latest BBM available on Apps World
