How to sign out from BBM?
I cant figure out how to sign out from BBM, i have sold my phone to my cousin, i never used BBM, just made an account and logged in. I googled and found that you can only set your status to unavailable. Is it possible to uninstall BBM so you are signed out and then re install BBM and make new account?

You cannot sign out of BBM, that is correct.
You can delete the app if you won't be using it.
BBM uses the device PIN and that PIN cannot be changed.
All you can do is delete old contacts, update your BBM profile. Contacts can be added using the PIN or an email address associated with that device.
This is why I'd like BBM to use a phone number instead of a PIN tied to the device.

Unfortunately yes. Tell your BBM contacts you no longer have a BlackBerry by sending them a broadcast message if your BlackBerry is still active.
Or, if you're moving to a new BlackBerry you can transfer your BBM contacts to the new one.
But, yes, I got my 9650 used. So if the previous owner had posted the PIN somewhere I'd be getting requests from strangers. Luckily, he didn't because I haven't.
I'd much rather BBM be tied to a phone number or email address only.
Does anyone have any other solutions for the OP?
