    You don't need a password for BBM. Are you able to pin them by "Compose PIN message"?

    Yep, you cannot create a password in BBM.

    Try deleting the pending contacts and try adding them via email address instead.

    I never noticed if anyone asked if you have a blackberry data plan? Without you have nothing. Did you have a working BBM previously before the name display change?

    Ok, you are saying a bunch of nonsense.

    Let's back up.

    What device model number are you using?
    What OS version is on the device?
    What phone service carrier are you on?
    Do YOU CURRENTLY have a BLACKBERRY Data Plan with that phone service carrier?
    Do the other data features (push email, BlackBerry Browser, etc) work properly on the device?
    Have you tried the steps I suggested above?

    You CANNOT use BBM if you don't have a BlackBerry Data Plan.

    BBM requires a Blackberry data plan. There is no work around that since you need an account on RIM's servers.

    You need to contact your phone service carrier and have them add a BLACKBERRY INTERNET package to your account and register your device for BlackBerry services.

    If your carrier does not carry the 9630 and you obtained it from somewhere else, then you are likely going to not be able to use it because you will not be able to get the correct Service Books.


    This is NOT something that you can solve without the carrier.

    Hello, I went today to my "phone service provider" ! and they couldnt configyrate my phone for internet, the only solution is to pay for subsription so that they can send me the BIS or data plan ! but it very expansive I have to pay every month a lot of money ! I mean there is no other way to configure my blackberry to internte so that I can use only the BBMessenger ??

    Thanks a lot !

    Nope. You MUST pay for a BIS (BlackBerry) Data Plan in order to get BlackBerry Messenger.

    There's no way to get it by itself. Sorry.

    A generic internet plan is not good enough.

    It won't work.

    Sorry. It's an exclamation.

    It's typically used to describe a MAJOR discovery and the triumph of that discovery.

    I used it to exclaim that finally you were understanding that the ONLY WAY you are going to get BlackBerry Messenger is to have a BLACKBERRY Data Plan.
