Default Help with blackberry messenger

Please Login to Remove!

I have a blackberry touch storm 2 9550, I need to know how I can show my location and put the correct time I'm on in the blackberry messenger.

Also I need to know what the barcode thing is and if it's safe to use and how to turn that on?

Thanks

Depending upon the device OS and the BBM version loaded ...

Open BBM > Menu Button > Options > Menu Button > About BlackBerry Messenger

Or

From the Home Screen > Options > Applications > Add-On > BlackBerry Messenger > Menu Button > View Properties

Ok.

I need to know how I can show my location and put the correct time I'm on in the blackberry messenger.

Open BBM , press Menu, select My Profile, check the box next to "Show My Location/TimeZone Information"

Also I need to know what the barcode thing is and if it's safe to use and how to turn that on?

It's as safe as giving out your PIN. So share it with people with whom you would share your PIN.

While you are in "My Profile" as noted above, scroll to the bottom and click "Display My Barcode".

That's correct. And it only shows your timezone. It doesn't show the time.
