    This is bugging the crap out of me! I signed up for BlackBerry Beta Zone right away (never had it before) without a problem and joined the BBM Windows Phone beta program also without a problem. I registered the right Live ID that I use for my Windows Phone. Yet every time I try, no matter if I use my computer to send it to my phone or if I try it straight from my phone, it always says I don't have permission to download the app. Anyone else have this problem, and does anyone have a solution for me? I would really appreciate some help!

    Did you get your key code sent to you, I think you need that to download.

    I did not! Didn't know that was needed. Thanks Slff! Should that have been sent by now, or does that take some time?

    I know you needed it for BBM beta on a BB so I would think it's the same, other wise everyone could download it.

    I was under the assumption that since they asked for my Microsoft ID, they would just check and make sure only the registered users could download it. I hope the code comes soon though...I've got the BBM itch for Windows Phone!!!

    So when you try downloading it does a little box pop up and ask for something.

    It's a closed beta... you can sign up first and that wouldn't guarantee that you'll be selected.

    Oh that might explain it, they will let you know if you get accepted then.

    If they somehow find that you have a history of being a great beta tester chances are you'll be selected. Atleast that's the impression they give in the last paragraph http://blogs.blackberry.com/2014/07/...ow-phone-beta/

    On beta apps for windows phone, the developer has to specify email addresses of the users they want to allow to test. No keys, etc. Also, there can be a maximum of 10,000 users on beta apps. Since the beta "filled up", I wonder if they got 10,000 people sign up or if they set some other limit.
