Cool Military Lady new to the BB Lifestyle!

Please Login to Remove!

hey guys

I just recently got a BB (my 1st one about 2 months ago). My husband and I are stationed over in England, its an AT&T BB but it was reprogrammed from the gentleman i bought it from to go onto the Vodaphone network over here. I'm able to access the internet but kinda confused on BBM. Does anyone know if I can connect with my friends in the US? I've tried adding my sister in laws BBM ID# but it still says pending next to it

You need a BlackBerry data plan from Vodafone which requires a contract. Once you get that, BBM will work.
