Default 8520 Curve BBM Not working

Please Login to Remove!

I went out a brought a Curve 8520 on thursday, rang service provider friday night and didnt get much help to be honest Rang them back again today, they have now sorted out my internet which costs me monthly, i then asked them about BBM and they told me they dont know about it. I am on PAY AS YOU GO Orange UK. I have added some of my friends PINs but they are just pending, and when they try to add me, it is just pending on their phone and im not recieving it. When i try and message a contact it just comes up in red writing and with a cross next to it.

Can anybody help me to get BBM working please

Thanks

Do you have BB data plan add-on? Not sure of the exact name that Orange uses however. You must have that to have access to any of the RIM based services, including BBM.

When i rang them and told them i need everything for BBM, they set up my internet, so i can go on facebook and so on, and they took 5 for that for this month, they then turned round and said they dont know about BBM and setting it up, so i need to ring this geek squad! Will BBM cost me another 5 a month? because they have taken 5 for my internet access! I hope it dont cost me a total of 10 a month for internet and BBM!
Thanks

No. They have setup the correct thing [hopefully] and they were just ignorant of what BBM is.
As long as its Blackberry Internet Service they have setup, you're fine.
