    Hi,

    How can I put a shortcut to BBM on my main screen? Its in my instant messenger folder but I dont really use any of the other apps in that folder.

    Can I have a direct link for BBM on the "desktop" main screen area?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Yes you can put it on your home screen. Highlight your BBM icon, press the Blackberry menu key, Select MOVE TO FOLDER, then select HOME and put it where you want.

    Like stated above.
    go to the folder/select BBM/hit BB button/move to folder Home/select BBM again/BB button and move within the 6 top icons.

    Hi brooklyn1976,

    Follow compuduff's steps above. Once you get to the main menu page, highlight the BBM icon again, hit the Berry button, and select move. Move it to a slot that appears on your home screen.

    Alternatively, you can turn off "Dial From Home Screen" from your Phone options. This frees up shortcuts to many different applications on your BlackBerry. Pushing "n" (without the quotes) will bring up BBM.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi,

    I went to the instant messaging folder, clicked on BBM, hit add to folder. It didn't give me the option of what folder to add it to. Now its gone from the IM folder, not on the main folder, and now my main messaging folder has BBMs in it.

    How can I fix that?

    Thanks

    Rich

    Wow, thats odd? I just did the steps above and worked to a tee. Look in all of your folders. If all else fails just reset your icons and it should go back to how it was.

    You could also turn off dialing from the home screen (press the Talk key, then menu, options, dial from home screen ---> OFF) and then the N key will always launch BBM.

    Yes, I do know how old this thread is. I was doing some searching like a good newbie. Like I said in my post, I can add a contact from BBM to the home screen but the icon does not show up
