Hey Fam, we noticed a lot of people have been having very serious problems with the new BBM 7,so we just decided to do this post for you. There are some things you MUST know before getting the new BBM 7,and if you got it already please scroll down to the fourth paragraph.
So here’s what should know before getting the new BBM 7:
1) You must have a blackberry ID because the new BBM is associated with your ID. So your normal local back up and restore might just be useless after you get the new BBM 7.
2)The BBM 7 is only available right now for Blackberry devices running OS 6 and 7.
3) The new BBM 7 has 16 new emoticons.
4) Before you can call a contact,that contact must have BBM 7 installed and must also be connected to a wi-fi network.
5) The BBM free voice call over wi-fi won’t work without a BIS plan.
If after you download the BBM 7 you don’t see all your contacts or you can’t find your BBM icon then please just revert to the old BBM 6 and chill. RIM might need to do a couple of fixes. But the if you have any issue please don’t hesitate to ASK FATHOMBERRY.
If you have BBM 7 already you could also tell us your experience. Its quiet funny here in naija where wi-fi is somewhat rare like that. But we did a post on how you and you pals could enjoy this with the hotspot feature on some Blackberry devices.
