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!
