    Hello, I ve just bought a BlackBerry Passport silver edition and I've been trying to get the Facebook Messenger,the android version, by apk, but it doesn't work. And when I Tried to download another version it keeps Telling Me to unistall my previous one which is a newer version, which I have done already. I am new to BlackBerry OS so I have no idea of what I should do.
    Thank you for your time.

    Forget facebook messenger. The blackberry facebook app has messaging integrated. It's not so fancy but it works well with the hub.

    The android facebook messenger is a memory and battery hog!

    Yea BlackBerry Facebook messenger isn't going to work like a Facebook messenger from a totally different OS. Here at Blackberry the Facebook messages come through the hub. You can also use the Facebook book mobile page to do anything that can't be done through the hub.

    This, and as an alternative, Face10 in BlackBerry Beta Zone has messenger integrated has well (though in the current beta there are no Hub notifications yet).

    Yup, there is a bug in 2836 that messes up the ability to fully uninstall Android apps. Was that version pushed by your carrier? Or did you load it yourself?

    Messenger is not integrated into Face10 yet. You have to have Nemory Studios Messenger app installed in order to access Messenger from within the Face10 app.

    Yes, but unfortunately, if you are new to side loading, this will take a little effort. There are two files in your system that will need to be downgraded. I don't have time to search them for you right now. Basically, you will need a tool like Sachesi (search and find it in the forums). You will make sure to un-select the option to install newer files only - and then you will drag and drop those two files to versions that do not have that bug.

    Someone here for sure could point you to those two files.

    Good luck to you.

    I'm calling BS there, because I just tried it on my phone w/o Nemory's Messenger app installed, and it gave me a message stating that the Messenger app had to be installed in order for the Messenger function to work.

    thank u for all ur answers. this is the update (and yes,i still have the same problem). I downloaded installed and used sachesi as advised however, even though it is shown-even in sachesi- that the viber app is unistall, it is still there! and again, i have to reset my phone once more.. maybe its best to downgrade my OS version?
