How to Use BBM (Blackberry Messenger) on Your iPhone

BBM-7-266x400

There was a time when Blackberry Messenger was as ubiquitous as the popular QWERTY handset in its name. However, with the rise of iPhones and the decline of Blackberry, most users abandoned the messaging service along with the phones that carried it. If you’re one of the many who made the switch to iPhone but still long for the nostalgic days of “BBM-ing” with friends throughout the night, an official middle-ground has arrived. BBM is available for iPhone (and Android) as a free download; Here’s how to use it.

1. Navigate to BBM.com in Safari.

2. Download BBM for iPhone.

3. Sign up for the waiting list with your e-mail address. As of this writing, Blackberry is rolling out BBM slowly due to high demand. You’ll receive an email once you’re eligible to use the app at which point you’ll want to relaunch the app and repeat this step.

As you can see, chatting over BBM is just as easy on an iPhone as it is on a classic Blackberry handset, minus those pesky physical buttons, of course.
