    Yea I just got it to work too using a different method on 2 phones.

    In BBM app go to a contacts profile (any contact), select details and turn off instant previews. After that just turn it back on and seems to be good to go.

    I had the same problem before, but now it seems to be ok by itself. I didnt do anything but restarted the phone a few times. Weird.

    OK, just updated to 10.2.0.424 on Telus and I'm not getting toast notifications for BBM either. I tried both fixes. When I go into the notifications settings for BBM it tells me that my BBM isn't set up even though it is and I can both send and receive BBMs. When I go to my contacts BBM profile under details there is nothing about previews. Anybody have any ideas?

    I've got Instant Previews on everywhere. I tried the method of turning all the BBM -related ones off and then back in again. No luck.

    When I view a BBM contact's details, there is no mention of Instant Previews.

    I got mine working. I had to open up the bbm app, and select the contacts to show in instant preview mode. Works fine now.

    Yes this worked for me as well. It looks to be on by default. I turned it off for a specific contact, closed bbm, reopened it, then switched it back on.

    Solution! For those of you that can see the instant preview stuff in your bbm at least.
    1) go to contacts page in your bbm and click a certain persons name and press "hide chat preview"
    2) close bbm and reopen
    3) press "show chat preview" and then go to the persons bbm profile
    4) click details and change instant preview to off
    5) close bbm and then reopen and change instant preview back on!

    Worked for me after I had tried every single thing I could think of, hope it works for you too!

    Here is how I fixed it. Go into BBM open a contact and touch the contact header and select the details tab. Turn instant preview off. Exit out of BBM and close it completely. Go back into BBM and repeat but this time in details turn it back on, exit and close BBM completely. Repeat for each contact..

    What I found was that it worked for contacts I added after the update. Then I tried deleting and re-inviting an old contact and the previews started working for that contact too.

    Kinda clumsy 'solution'

    Nm, just got it to work. It didn't want to activate while lock screen notifications were turned off. Turned them on and toast worked straight away.

    Lock screen notification? Where can I find the setting for that?
    A friends z10 has also problems with it. She doesn't get bbm instant previews nor Whatsapp.
    I have that just happen when bbming with her. I get all the other previews. That's awkward.

    Where do you find "show chat preview"? I can't find that anywhere in BBM. I'm really eager to get BBM Toasts working since the only people who used to sms me now are on BBM!

    LOL none of these solutions have worked for me, and neither does my BBM gives me the option for a dark theme.
    Dont know why my BBM wont change from light to dark, otherwise all my other apps that can use the dark theme work perfectly fine.

    Is everyone making sure once they turn the setting off in BBM they exit then go back in and turn it on, exit and go back in? Also make sure it's turned off in notifications, exit then go back in and turn on, exit to make sure it took.

    Do the same for light / dark themes, turn to light, exit, go back in, turn to dark, exit then back in.

    Right in my BBM i DO NOT have the option to change from dark to light, there is no option. Ive gone through all my settings and made sure everything that is meant to be turned on is turned on.

    I get instant previews for everything else except for BBM. I had this same damn issue when i loaded a 10.2 leak i ended up going back to 10.1, everything worked other than BBM which couldnt be changed from light to dark. Maybe its the beta channels causing the issue with the theme change and previews.

    Same here. No BBM toast and no BBM dark themes. Running OS 10.2.0.424 and BBM Channel 10.2.20.37.

    Aaaaah yes, there is your answer for the dark theme in BBM. Having channels beta does not give option for dark theme in BBM

    The only thing I can suggest is wrong for the Instant Previews in BBM is that you have to make sure it's turned on in notifications for BBM as well as turn it off for each contact in BBM, exit BBM and then go back in and turn it on for each contact and exit BBM. Should work after that.

    Well as much as i hate to say this, Blackberry are a bunch of freaking *******..why give the option for dark theme if it wont work for BBM channels beta??. Surely they cant be that stupid, actually they are by the looks of it seeing as they have ran this company into the ground.

    Anyhow the only way to get the dark theme to work is to delete it i guess...utter stupidity on Blackberry's part.

    As for the BBM instant previews??, they are enabled in notifications but when going through my contacts on bbm i dont get any options to turn instant previews on or off.

    EDIT: Ok instant previews are now working lol, must have been a restart that fixed the issue.

    Now to figure out a way of getting BBM to go dark with the channels. Is there an official version of BBM channels??
