BBM on Samsung Galaxy Fame

BBM (Black Berry Messenger) finally arrive for android and iphone couple days ago, and i already try it on my samsung galaxy fame and it works.

The BBM app is working very well on samsung galaxy fame, now i can chat with my friends that has blackberry smartphones, i'm so happy.

When you download the BBM app you can't use it right away, there will be a waiting line, once you're on the front line you will be able to register and use the BBM.

So go ahead download BBM app on google play store, it's an official app from blackberry and free to download. Here's alternative download link, just in case you can't download from google play.

After the BBM app installed on your phone, you need to enter your email address and you will be on waiting list, after the wait is over you'll be able to create blackberry ID and get the pin.

So how long do i have to wait before i can start using BBM? it's probably one day, because i get announcement email from blackberry in the next day.

Here's screenshots taken from my phone (samsung galaxy fame) :
Thank you blackberry for brings BBM to android platform :)

UPDATE : since 28 october 2013 there is no waiting line anymore for BBM, anyone can use it right away.

PROBLEM with BBM :

Some people reports that the BBM does not work using data network but works using wifi connection, to solve this problem make sure you do this :

  1. remove any proxy address from your data network setting, go to "Settings" > "More settings" > "Mobile networks" > "Access Point Name" > select the current APN > "Proxy".
  2. make sure you're using 3G/HSDPA/HSPA connection, because BBM requires high speed network
  3. if still doesn't work, try using different data network carrier/provider (use SIM card from different brand)
The phone is not the problem, it is the network carrier/provider that you are using, so contacting your network carrier would also be a good idea to solve this problem.

  5. How come yours is set up? I've installed BBM on the same device for a 3rd time and it's always saying "No Connectivity Found"

    1. that means you have no internet connection or your internet connection is blocking the BBM, try to remove any proxy address on your network setting.
