    I have tried to find a way to install the new BBM 5.0, but can't seem to figure it out. I'm new to the blackberry world (3 days now) and I received an old 8703e that is now setup on my personal cell line.

    So, I updated the software (desktop and blackberry) but it says my BBM is up to date at 4.2.1

    I am on the Bell newtwork in Canada and can't seem to get it no matter how hard I try. If I go to blackberry Appworld, it can't be downloaded any other way except by browser, which I don't have, I only have email and BBM on my Blackberry. Am I screwed without the internet to browse and locate this program?

    What OS are you running?

    BBM 5 only works with OS 4.5 or higher.

    I have 4.2 I think, so I'm guessing that I can't upgrade that either on the blackberry 8703e

    Nope 4.5 or higher, check the fourms for the latest OS under those devices.

    I found one where it says you have to do a bunch of tinkering to install it, and everyone is talking about Verizon, but I'm in Canada under the Bell network, will all that stuff still work.

    Then, I have the problem of I STILL don't have a browser to download the BBM.

    I'm just so confused.

    You don't have a browser on your device? Are you on a blackberry data plan?

    No browser, that's what I mentioned in my first post. I only have BBM and email for this Blackberry.

    With Bell and in Canada, the cost of cell phones are astronomically high compared to most in the US. I was given this old phone, so am just trying to do what I can cheaply.

    so, under my family plan with Bell, my phone is $30.00 for the Blackberry subscription (on top of the normal $25.00 for the cell service)..

    Anyway, this plan is a Unlimited BBM, Unlimited Email but no internet access.

    For another $10.00 per month (could be more, not sure) I can get a plan that is 500megs per month, but I didn't want to pay the extra so want to try and do things without it.

    Now, it seems like I won't be able to, so I will have to consider the data plan.
