    For sure Blackberry wants BBM on every device now so what is the NEC Terrain not supported?
    (I know they compete on hardware, however, NEC caved and left the business so no more threat at all!)

    Please someone ask Blackberry to support BBM on the NEC Terrain. Thank you.

    Welcome to CrackBerry!

    The NEC Terrain OS is Android OS, v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and has a screen size of 3.1" according to this link:-

    NEC Terrain - Full phone specifications

    BBM for Android supports Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or later and BBM for Android is compatible with cellular enabled Android devices with a screen size of 7 or less.


    Have you tried to install it?

    I tried to install it. This is what the Google Play store says:

    "This app is incompatible with all of your devices."
    Then it lists the NEC Model

    Doesn't BBM need a higher resolution that 640X480?

    I don't know. Why would it?
    It seems it is offered on many lower price phones do they all have better resolution than that?

    It worked!

    One question is there no BBM voice calls on Android? I did have BBM voice calls before on iPhone?

    Thanks again!

    There is, the 2.3 version doesn't have it however
    So it's weird that you didn't get it, if you use 4.0

    Glad to hear. You can also use it to check for updates to the app as well.
    Is the updated version you just downloaded performing just as well, or better than the previous one you had on your NEC?
