    It sounds like you don't have a BlackBerry data plan, which is necessary to use BBM, as it uses RIM's servers.

    Talk to your carrier about adding on a data plan and all of your BBM problems will be solved.

    No data plan, no BBM.

    Exactly, sounds like you don't have a Blackberry dataplan - call your Carrier or drop by a store and ask them to subscribe you to a Blackberry dataplan. Either that, or the phone is stolen and the BBM is blocked.

    Go to the BBM app on your 9700, hit the blackberry button, and then go to "My Profile" or whatever it's called - and see if your PIN is there under the "PIN" heading, or if it said "NULL" or "VOID" or "INVALID" or something.

    Edit: Oh, also, if you literally just got the phone, like in the last 24 hours, it may be that the carrier's network is a little slow and your phone hasn't been registered to the network yet. It took mine about 16 hours to fully work (i.e. BBM and other apps that require BIS didn't work for 16hrs after I got it). So give it some time. If you want to, you could go to "Options" > "Advanced Options" > "Host Routing Tables" and hit the blackberry button, then choose "Register" if you think it'll help.

    Also, you said "1kb =1cent"

    So... $10.24 for a megabyte? \o/

    sounds like you have t-mo. the 1kb = 1 cent is not a "data plan", which is why BBM won't work. data plans require a monthly fee, not a pay per use.

    Especially at that price. At 1 cent per kilobyte, and assuming 1024 kilobytes in a megabyte, my bill would be over $5000/month.

    In BBM view your profile and your PIN is there. Also make sure your BIS/BES is working.

    Did you update bbm? Have you tried rebooting? Already did a backup selectively of bbm and restored it?
