Default BBM on 8703

Please Login to Remove!

A friend of mine just got an 8703. I do not see the BBM icon, but it may be hidden somewhere. Where would it be if not how would I get it onto the phone?

You must have a Data Plan to use BBM
Start at the home screen
hold the alt button while you click the trackwheel
scroll to show all and click trackwheel
see if the icon is visible but faded

if yes
roll to the icon hold the alt button click trackwheel and select hide (to unhide)

if no
you need to determine which device OS is on the BB
4.2 has BBM included...resend service books (DO NOT install from link below)

4.1 OR OLDER needs a separate install from here
BlackBerry - BlackBerry Messenger
