How to Sign Up For BlackBerry Messenger in 4 Easy Steps!
BlackBerry Messenger, more commonly known as “BBM”, is an internet based instant messaging service provided by BlackBerry. It comes pre-installed in all BlackBerries and can be downloaded as an app on your iPhone, Android phone or Windows Phone. It is an immensely popular IM service due to the fact that it’s easy to use, and also provides voice calling features. BBM users using the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone can even make free video calls to other users using the app!
Want in on a BBM account? Here’s how you can sign up:
Step One: Install and open the app
Once you open the app, this screen will appear:
All you need to do is enter your name, email address (this will become your BBM username!) and a password. Make sure that the password is something easy to remember, but hard for people other than you to guess! A good bet is a childhood nickname, or your favourite food, and try to replace some of the letters with numbers (o with 0, e with 3, i with 1, etc)
Done filling the form? Now tap “Create Account”!
Step Two: Confirm your email
You should now see a screen that looks something like this:
Basically, the app is asking you to confirm the email address you’ve entered. If you’ve entered it correctly, tap on “It’s Correct”, otherwise tap on “Wrong Email”, type it in correctly and then tap “Create Account” again.
Step Three: Receive Blackberry updates?
You will now be asked whether you want to receive news about BlackBerry products and services in a screen like this:
Tap on “Not Now” or “Yes” depending on what you want. You will be taken to the next screen which looks like this:
Your BBM account is now being set up by the App. Once it’s finished being set up, move onto the next step.
Step Four: Personalise your profile
You should now be seeing this screen:
Take a picture to personalise your profile, something to help your friends recognize you on the app, and, once you’re done, Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of a BBM Account!
