    Question BBM Help!

    Advertisement



    I just bought a blackberry bold off some guy. It didnt come with BBM on it and i was told to download it after and it would work, he said it was a new phone. So i got a data plan now, i know my data is working since i can search the interent on my phone and receice emails. But i have a mac laptop and i just found out that i need desktop manager to re-download BBM or something, im not to sure what to do so can you please help me?

    P.S. I don't know any Acronyms, so please is you use please clarify what they mean. I need a simple easy way of getting BBM so it works, please and thanks, any help would be great!

    Is the icon hidden? You might need to install it via Desktop Manager.

    Did you go to the instant message folder? The bbm icon may be in there.

    That link is for the new bbm 5.0. Is that what you want to install or just the regular bbm?

    What OS do you have on your Bold? Go to options and about, it will tell you what OS it is.

    Just realized that this link is for the 4.0 and 4.1 only, it says if you have a higher OS, you need to download it via desktop manager. Sorry

    Why don't you try downloading Desktop Manager 4.6 and see if it will work? If it does, then you can go in to applications and check the box for Blackberry messenger and load it to your phone. Download Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.6
