Default BBM is installed, but I can't find it

Please Login to Remove!

I installed BBM today via Google Chrome. The problem is that I can't find it anywhere on my phone now. I know it's installed because when I click the "Blackberry App World" icon and browse to "Blackberry Messenger", it says "installed".

How do I open BBM? Please help.

thanks

You don't install BlackBerry apps with Google Chrome. You install them on the device.

I know that. I opened the blackberry website on my PC, using Google Chrome. I clicked on "Download BBM" and was told to plug the Blackberry into the computer, which I did. It downloaded the Application and said that it installed it successfully.

I believe it uses an ActiveX control to load apps to the BB.

Why not try it from the BB itself - www.blackberry.com/messenger

Thanks, I've tried visiting App World from the Blackberry, but it gives me no option to download it because it says that it is already installed.

What steps do I have to go through to open BBM on the Blackberry? I've searched all over for the application, but can't find it. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong places?

It could be under Instant Messaging, it could be under Downloads.

OK - please try the following:

From the BlackBerry Browser, go to http://blackberry.com/messenger

NOT APP WORLD - just the browser. It is out there.

Also please check that you don't have any icons hidden.
