BBM 7 - Features & bug fixes

So you've heard of the all new BBM 7 and you want to know its features before you upgrade.

This only works on devices running OS 6 and above. So in case you have something like a Cruve 8520, Im sorry, it wont upgrade to BBM7 yet.


OTA method (Direct download)

  1. Just go to http://www.blackberry.com/BBM from your phone's browser and follow the steps

OTA method (App World)

  1. Open Blackberry App World from your phone
  2. Go to My World
  3. Options -> Refresh List
Blackberry Messenger should appear in the 'Upgrades' category.

Desktop method (From your computer)

  1. Go to http://www.blackberry.com
  2. Click the BBM tab
  3. Hit Download BBM
  4. Towards your right under 'Item Information' it should show you version
  5. Click 'Download'
  6. Sign in to your Blackberry ID.
  7. Connect your Blackberry to your PC.
  8. Click Continue Browsing
Allow it to sync and progress bar to do its thing.

Wifi Fix (Thanks to Thanweer)

If you've got the error that says "Cannot establish connection" on your BBM 7 even though you're connected to wifi, can browse and the rest of the apps are working - here's what you need to do.

  • Go to your 'Set up Wifi' on your phone where you see a list of available networks.
  • Click 'Saved Wifi Networks'
  • Select the one you're currently connected to and hit Edit
  • Untick 'Automatically obtain IP address and DNS'
  • In your computer - Go to Start Menu, type cmd and hit Enter to run Command Prompt
  • Type ipconfig and hit Enter.
  • Under IPv4 you'll see your IP as something like 192.168.1.xxx or 192.168.2xx.x - Type that as it is onto your phone and only replace the digits after the last dot. For example 192.168.1.XXX or 192.168.123.X with any random number/s.

Apple users -

  • Apple Menu -> System Preferences
  • Click on 'Network' icon under Internet
  • From the 'Show' drop down menu select how you're connected to the internet
  • Your details will be below. 


  • Put the Subnet Mask as it is on the computer into your phone
  • Put the primary DNS as
  • Put the Default Gateway as it is in Command Prompt
  • Hit Save & Connect

What basically happened was your region just changed from wherever you are.
The little red ! on your main BBM screen should now have disappeared.
Hit that green button on your friend's profile and enjoy BBM Voice!

Importance of Ashura - 10th Muharram

Ashura is the 10th Day of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar. Since the beginning of this world, Ashura has been a very important day. On this day great signs of Allah SWT's Power and Glory have appeared in the world. Here are some of the following -
  1. Prophet Adam (A.S.)'s Repentance was accepted.
  2. The first Baraan-e-Rehmat (Rain of Mercy) happened on earth.
  3. Prophet Nuh (A.S.)'s Ark reached land on the mountain called Al-Judi.
  4. Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.) was hurled into the fire, which became cool and safe upon Allah's Command.
  5. Allah gave Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.) the title of Khaleel-Ullah.
  6. Prophet Yaqub (A.S.) met his son Prophet Yousuf (A.S.) after 40 years.
  7. Prophet Ayub (A.S.) regained his health by the Grace of Allah SWT.
  8. Prophet Younus (A.S.) was released from the stomach of a fish after 40 days.
  9. Prophet Sulayman (A.S.) received his Kingdom and great dominion, rule over mankind, Jinn, animals and air.
  10. Prophet Musa (A.S.) and Bani Israel crossed the sea that Allah's split, giving them safety and defeating Pharaoh.
  11. Prophet Isa (A.S.) was raised alive into the skies.
  12. Imam Hussain (A.S.), the grandson of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) was martyred today after him and his family spent weeks of thirst and hunger.
  13. Hazrat Umar (R.A.) was martyred today on the Musalla of the Prophet (S.A.W.) while praying.
  14. The day of judgement will be 10th of Muharram - Ashura.
Things to do on Ashura Day
  • Make Ghusl
  • Apply Surma to the eyes
  • Cut nails
  • Visit the sick
  • Give charity
  • Offer Nafil Prayers
  • Offer Salat-ut-Tasbeeh
  • Be kind to the orphans and the needy
  • Provide food generously to family
  • Ask Allah for Forgiveness and Mercy
Fasting on the day of Ashura

When the Prophet S.A.W. arrived in Madina, the Jews in Madina used to fast on the day of Ashura since Musa (A.S.) had fasted to thank Allah for victory over Pharaoh, and hence Bani Israel had followed him in doing the same. It is then that the Prophet S.A.W. said, "We are closer to Musa than you are." and commanded that the fast of Ashura be observed for 2 days - the 9th of Muharram and 10th of Muharram.

"The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadan is the fasting of Allah's month of Muharram." (Muslim)
