    A few questions:

    What OS are you running?
    What version of BBM do you have installed on your device?
    Finally, do you have a Blackberry Data Plan?

    First, to find the OS... go into Options > About... look at the 3rd line... it will start with v5.0.0.xxx... tell us what xxx is.

    A Blackberry Data Plan is what you need to receive emails and browse the web without Wifi... you usually have to pay a little more than just a calling plan.

    No data plan - NO BBM!!!!

    You need a Blackberry Data Plan to use BBM.

    I'm not sure where to go from here... you have a Data Plan now... at least that is what you are saying now... you know how to use BBM... but yet you have BBM notifications... you're sure they are BBM notifications??? Oh ya, you know BBM... like I said, I don't know where to go from here.

    If you've used BBM in the past, then you have a data plan. BBM has been having issues lately, so that might be it.

    im using my bbm as normal, im still having ppl talk 2 me and messages come through but on my home, it says i have 7 bbm notifications. if i have a conversation open it will go up to 8 but that will come through and once ive read it goes back to 7... so its as if i have 7 unread conversations but theres nothing there.

    And you've done a Battery Pull: Leave your device ON, pull the battery out for 20 seconds, put the battery back in and wait for it to boot up... Do this right now, then let us know if it's still there.
