Official Update - BBM for Android and iOS
 
UPDATE: BBM for Android and BBM for iPhone: Note from BBM EVP «Inside BlackBerry - The Official BlackBerry Blog

Hi Android and iPhone users,

This is Andrew Bocking, head of BBM at BlackBerry. As a follow up to our first blog post on Saturday, I want to take a moment to provide you with an update on the rollout of BBM on Android and iPhone.

Last week, an unreleased, older version of the BBM for Android app was posted on numerous file sharing sites. We were aware of an issue with this unreleased version of the BBM for Android app. This older version resulted in volumes of data traffic orders of magnitude higher than normal for each active user and impacted the system in abnormal ways. The version we were planning to release on Saturday addressed these issues, however we could not block users of the unreleased version if we went ahead with the launch.

We attempted to address the problems caused by the unreleased version throughout the day on Saturday, but as active users of the unreleased app neared a million – and accelerated – it became clear that the only way to address the issue was to pause the rollout for both Android and iPhone.

The team is now focused on adjusting the system to completely block this unreleased version of the Android app when we go live with the official BBM for Android app. We are also making sure that the system is reinforced to handle this kind of scenario in the future. While this may sound like a simple task – it’s not. This will take some time and I do not anticipate launching this week.

Thank you for your patience while we take the time needed to deliver the experience you expect from BBM. We will continue to provide you with updates here on InsideBlackBerry.com and through @BBM on Twitter. We will notify everyone who has pre-registered on BBM.com when BBM is available on Android and iPhone.

Andrew Bocking
EVP, BBM

Downloaded the iOS version from the Apple AppStore today. Is will be a good way to stay in contact with some of my key office people when I'm not carrying my work Blackberry around.

Hi Andrew

I new in this forum
I just want to know if the BBM pin on andoid and ios is the same type of pin for all of us?
Im just concerned because they just sign for pins 10 million peoples and i dont know if the servers can afford these things
The way bbm pin for my blackberry works like the other ones (android and ios)?
The way you get a pin for andoid goes to the same servers than the blackberry pins?

Regards

Each device gets it's own unique 8-character PIN assigned by BlackBerry. For a BlackBerry device, each one gets it's PIN hard coded into it at the factory. For Android and iOS the PIN is assigned by BlackBerry when you get your activation email and is associated with the email address you enter to create your BlackBerry ID.

I have been a long time BlackBerry user but I'm always experimenting with other platforms. Right now I'm primarily using an iPhone 5s, but I was able to sign into BBM on my iPhone with the same email I use for my BlackBerry ID on my BB Q10. My entire contact list was automatically brought into my iPhone in the iOS BBM app.
