The BlackBerry Passport (BBID).

The BlackBerry Identification (BBID) is not just important but the MUST-HAVE for Every Blackberry User that’s why we decided to call it the ‘BlackBerry Passport’, and since there is now BBM for Android and iOS users, they too are not left out. According to BlackBerry, BlackBerry ID isΒ a single, master key to BlackBerry products, sites, services and applications, including BlackBerry Protect and the BlackBerry World storefront.

Major uses of the BBID include:

  • Simplified access to BlackBerry products and services.
  • Privacy and security controls for your BlackBerry Device.
  • A personalized and customizable experience.

The BBID is your ‘Master Key’ to everything BlackBerry and it is very important that you have YOUR OWN BBID, even if you plan on switching to a different device (iOS,Android or Windows Phones). Apart from the fact that you may need to access BBM on your iOS or Android, you may also decide to come back to the Blackberry OS again some time later. With your BlackBerry ID you can :

BlackBerry Messenger 7 (Beta)

I don’t know who else is as excited about the new BBM 7 as I am, funny tho some people are actually scared to sign up for the Beta Zone saying ‘the app might just crash their phone’, smh,what are back ups for? Plus, did you even know that the new BBM 7 is integrated with your BlackBerry ID? πŸ˜€ imagine putting your ID on your friends phone and getting all your contacts on there, lol , ok just kidding tho, don’t try that.

So the new BBM 7 has been working quite well for me, I called a friend in Czech and we spent almost 47 minutes talking, not thinking about the cost of the call. All thanks to RIM, now this our so called service providers can now…. *sealed lips* .

I read some blog where some guys were talking about how much data the call over wifi consumes, so I decided to try a whole lot of things just to bring the best to the FathomBerry fam. πŸ˜‰

So who has heard of the hourly bundle plan? This is a time based bundle plan, that some of our providers offer those who just need to do something quickly online or for those who have specific times they want to use the internet. So this is what I found, you can actually create a hotspot with some blackberry devices, then connect as many as 5 other BlackBerry devices to it and enjoy the BBM 7. All you need to do is, subscribe for the hourly bundle plan, create a hotspot and there u go, wifi for 5 people to make free calls πŸ˜‰ . Yeah! I know I make it sound pretty easy but so it is, and that’s exacly why we have the ‘ASK FATHOMBERRY’ section so u can ask anything.

*well this is for those that don’t always have access to wifi* and just before I go, fyi, fathomberry is now on bbm and has BBM 7 already installed, so u can feel free to holla! πŸ˜‰
