    I recently got back into BB10 with the acquisition of a BB Classic. I still have the Z10 and a PlayBook though.

    Anyway, I'm trying to set up BBM. I can't launch it, giving me the ol' "Temporary Server Error" message. Remembering in the past this usually related to a BBID SNAFU, I searched the forums here for a fix to this, because I couldn't remember what it was. Found what I thought was the fix, but it didn't make a difference. Tried some other things; here's what I've done so far:



    So at this point this may be more of a BB10 issue, because when I try to change my BBID, no matter what I do, I am getting an error that the BBID is in use elsewhere, EVEN IF I JUST CREATED THE ID. This is where I'm stuck. But I was hoping this may perhaps be BBM related, but I don't know. Anyway, here I am and hope someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

    Disable BlackBerry Protect, wipe the phone, and create a new BBID on the device during the initial setup.

    I will say, one thing I just discovered -- in the BBID settings of BB10, the "Change username" is actually to create a new ID, not login with an existing one, so that's one area where I goofed. I'll try to create a new ID during the initial setup to see if that helps.

    Wow I didn't know I inadvertently created three posts.

    Anyway, posting here to say that I got in by creating a new ID during the initial setup. long live my old PIN, whatever it was.

    Just checking. Is this still working?
    Is BBM for BB10 still activable and usable in some way?
    That would be awesome.

    Passport + Playbook because why not

    O M F G !
    I'm trying tomorrow!
    Thank you so much.

    UPDATE: It worked! Thank you again for this. It's a ghost town there, because I had all my BBM contacts in my primary BBID, but It works and i feel satisfied about it.
