    Not entirely true. I have a cousin in Ukraine. He owns an iphone and has BBM on it. We chat very often. No problems.

    Send them apk file for sideloading.

    I can confirm that BBM is not in russian play store. Probably due to russian law... as far as I am aware BBM wasnt included on russian bbos devices...

    For ios they should change their appstore region.
    For android the apk can be downloaded

    Thanks all 3 things I would I like to mention

    1 - I have been sending the Apk file to them
    2 Not all of Ukraine has BBM I was visiting there and it was the same as Russia.
    3 what is it about Russian law that prohibits BBM?
    4. In Ukraine I couldn't even find BlackBerry 10 phone to purchase except online purchase through unofficial resellers of BlackBerry

    5th there has to be more push in the Russian market considering the size of the country and the amount of people.

    If BlackBerry paid me I would so do it!

    My friends in Russia have all been unsuccessful in attaining BBM for iPhone there. But no one seems to know why or if there is any way around it. I'll be moving there later in 2015 and I'm hoping BBM on my Blackberry will still work. Fingers crossed!

    Interesting...

    I'd highly appreciate if Mr. Putin could stop Apple products sales in Russia and push BlackBerry instead. It was said that any device with access to iCloud would be banned from 1st of January 2015 but I don't know how that could affect the sales of iThings in Russia
