    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone is experiencing issues with their BBM app on an iPhone 5 and the sound alerts?

    I convinced a cousin to download BBM for messaging but he's having issues with the app not sending a proper sound notification. The vibrate setting works no problem but the sound doesn't. I have gone through the sound and alerts on his iPhone and everything appears fine so I am not sure what the issue maybe??

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yeah, my only three American friends using BBM have issues with the notifications. The phone let's you know there's a BBM message, when they go check nothing shows up. Also. Sometimes it won't notify then at all unless they go into the app.

    My friends have the same problem. Either BlackBerry is not making it work or Apple doesn't want it to work.

    I need BBM on iPhone advice too. What/where are the settings that allow notifications when the app is closed? Is that possible? One friend with 6, other with 5s.

    I've heard of this issue on ios as well. I don't have an iPhone anymore so I can't test it but that's what friends and relatives have said. I do have an android as well and it works without any problems there.

    I also have had issues with the BBM notification sounds not working both on a iPhone 5s and a 6. Definitely an issue that needs to be resolved.
