BlackBerry opens up sign-ups for BBM beta app on Windows Phone

BBM is coming to Windows Phone very soon, but before that happens you're going to want to join an upcoming beta to try it out. BlackBerry has just announced that a BBM app built just for Windows Phone will be here in the coming weeks. Details on how to join the beta down below.


BlackBerry has designed their upcoming app to have a native user experience that embraces the clean, modern design of Windows Phone. There are three areas core to the BBM experience that you'll find in this app: Contacts, Chats and Feeds.

Contacts is a single list where you'll be able to view all BBM contacts (individuals and groups). Chats is the single destination for all BBM Chats including group chats, multi-person chats and one-to-one BBM Chats. Feeds is where you'll see what all your BBM Contacts are up to. Status updates and profile photo changes can be viewed here.

We just signed up for the beta and hope to do a hands-on when we get in. How about you? Looking forward to BBM on Windows Phone?

  • Sweet!
  • 2 years, too late!
  • I cant download it anyone help me
  • Better late than never!!!
  • Looks pretty sweet doesnt it.
  • Signed up
  • How can I ??
  • You need to create a Blackberry Beta Zone account. Then look under eligible programs
  • Can you Give me a link?
  • You did read the article, right?
  • Yes I did but I don't know how
  • You don't know how to click a link in the article?
  • "he may be on mobile" swipe right and click the links button. The first one is the actual sign in. The second is an article about it.
  • Sorry Sam , I'm on mobile and I just signed up but can't download the app
  • I'm a noob :3
  • Lol. This is just signed up for join bbm beta program. If you already did, just wait until more new info come ;)
  • I'm already signed up. Just waiting for a green light to download
  • Me too, I just don't know how long it will take.
  • Subscribed! Don't know a single soul who uses BBM, but...
  • Are you serious??? Last count there were at least 10 million BBM users.... Dude... Common
  • Sweet. Just signed up.
  • Ditto. Now to figure out if I have any friends using the service...
  • +1020 A very good news, been waiting for it ever since a post about bbm beta coming soon. Since BBM very popular here at Indo, and my friends keep b*tchin bout why wp not has BBM and bragging how limited our app store compare to their Lagroid or iCrapple, hope this official app could make em reconsider about how our store become bigger bit by bit. Anyway, waiting for the green light to download it
  • Do we know what medium will be used for the green light i.e. Email or blog post?
  • Done!
  • Wow the sign in process is messing me up. Pain in the arse
  • Yep, completely broken on WP. You'd think they would have checked that.
  • I had to switch to my pc & It worked fine ..just couldn't get past the registration page on my wp
  • I ended up creating a BBM ID on chrome validated it and it kept saying the username/password was wrong (it wasn't). Then I used IE (love it but still not there yet) to log in, worked like a charm. Still waiting to be able to download it. I'm going through some trouble to beta test a program that I have no interest in. I do like giving devs feedback though :P 
  • You download apps you don't want so you can provide feedback? Do you give them all bad reviews because you have no interest? Please explain, I think my brain is broken after a long day.
  • I think he means he enjoys beta testing apps, even if he doesn't want to personally use the service. He will try things out and leave quality feedback for things he feels could be done better or are broken.
  • No I enjoy being part of betas. I like testing apps and giving devs feedback. I personally prefer when devs give us an email for feedback therefore I don't have to give the app a rating but If I have to use the review system I tend to give 3 or above depending on the feedback. 3 is a minimum since it's a beta app. I also update the reviews as the problems are fixed. I hope that clears things out for you! 
  • I signed up and in with my WP
  • Same can't sign up
  • It's only been a few comments, but it's so nice to see that WP8 users are looking forward to BBM. This is just the beta release, but y'allz are gonna love it (even more) when voice calling, video calling & channels come to the WP version of BBM. Hooray for BBM.
    Hooray for Windows Phone. Posted via the WPC App for Android from my Z10
  • Android z10??
  • Android app on his Blackberry Z10
  • The BlackBerry Z10 can download Android apps ⌒.⌒
  • I don't see the program on their website ? Already sign in
  • Done! waiting for some sweet bbm love
  • +1
  • Signed up!
  • I downloaded it a few days ago. I don't know how.
  • How can this be !! :D
  • For he IS the Kwisatz Haderach!
  • Troll 365
  • Show ur screen shot maan
  • Screenshot or it didn't happen :P
  • Done!
  • I'm signed up too. i'm excited :)
  • Signed up!
  • So I need to signup for blackberry id... then signup for beta access... and then comes a page that IE mobile cannot open... great.
  • Switch the IE on ur wp to 'Desktop version'
  • Anyone signed up using their WP device
  • I tried to... it comes to a page when it asks me to search store for app :(
  • Yep ..just follow the links Sam provided if you already have a blackberry ID ..if not create one ...and you can't download the app yet ..just signing up for it
  • Tried get to the page where it shows install an app from the store
  • Go back to the post ,swipe to right , tap view links ,tap the first it should go to the bb page with a big blue button that says sign in
    PS: Are you using your windows phone to do this?
  • Yes that's the issue lol
  • Well I did it with my phone too I'm not sure what you're doing wrong ..anyway good luck
  • I signed in then go to the new user button it shows a page which needs an app from the shop
  • I guess I'll have to wait for a while
  • Look mate... Take a deep breathe
    We are all excited as you of course 1. Use PC because Blackberry Beta website is not supported in Internet Explorer
    2. Sign up a Blackberry account or sign in I you have one
    3. Sign up in blackberry beta zone or sign in if you're already signed up
    4. Put your phone infos
    5. Submit
  • Haha needed this advice. Well I guess I'll chill lol
  • "1. Use PC because Blackberry Beta website is not supported in Internet Explorer" I signed up using IE.
  • I couldn't .. Don't know why
  • Done and waiting. There was an old post here about BBM beta with direct installation link. I tried that but didn't work. Guess we have to wait
  • People here are confused about the BETA registration, not gonna blame them because it sucks totally.
    Look you have to signup twice.
    1: To get BlackBerry ID.
    2: To get access to BBM BETA. You can do the first one on WP, but not the second one because it is broken on WP (Stupidity -_-).
    Most of the people here have done the step 1 but not 2, and they think they are enrolled into BETA lol
    Btw go to PC it will work just fine (or try UC Browser speed mode +iPhone Website preference).
    Personally not gonna singup for BETA, cause the process is shitty.
  • While I have to agree with you about the website being user-friendly to most of us, I think it was not that complicated as well
  • Thanks 8) I was trying from my 1520. Gotta wonder about all these "testers" who've signed up but know no one with a BBID. Kinda like having no gas in the car but jumping in with the keys to go for a drive.
  • Done
  • For me, fb messenger and whatsapp is enough, but signed up!! I just want to make WP bigger and better for others!
  • That's the right attitude. But havn't signed up yet - will wait when it gets out of beta and hits the general WP user base.
  • Signed up - waiting for the download link to appear in my email!
  • The sign up process is all Fücked up
  • I thought it was fairly painless.
  • I bet you signed up using your phone, try signing up from a PC
  • Just singed up too...what happens now?  Do they send us a link or how does this work?  It said I was accepted.
  • They'll send you a link to the app in the appstore (at least, that's what happened with previous beta programs in which I've participated in the past).
  • Do I need to sign up with an outlook account or do I use my beta account I have already with my yahoo id?
  • Try the one you already have
  • done worked on pc
  • Sign up with the BB ID you already have and you will have to provide your outlook email that you use as your Windows phone store id to be able to enter the beta program
  • Done!
  • It keep on sayin username already registered
  • Then choose another one
  • signed up
  • i'm waiting for threema!!!
  • Been looking forward to this!
  • I'm signed up
  • just signed but it just shows im enrolled havent got any download link probably might come later...waiting...  
  • I tried download the app directly but still gives me error that I am not allowed it
  • It is private beta.. You need to have access so you need to sign up first and then if you are approved they would send you the private beta link from which you can download..... Better be quick the beta access is generally given to limited number of people... Follow the link down of the article and create an account , join in the beta zone and wait for the email
  • If you are approved? Does that mean that signing up doesn't guarantee you access to the beta?
  • I think they will select the applicant based on their phone model and region... So they can judge issues better.... So people applying with similar models later from same regions are bound to be rejected....
  • Signed up as well via my surface pro. Couldn't do it via Droid tablet or Lumia 1020
  • I've been waiting damned ages for this!   Thanks BlackBerry!   I've signed up, looking forward to downloading it! Not too positive about that design though, oh well. BBM is BBM at the end of the day!
  • I've done completed registration form. And i cant download BBM on Store. What happened?
  • This is just a sign up request for the Beta.  You still need to be approved.  As implied from the article, it might take a couple of weeks for that to happen.
  • Okaaaaay :D
  • Joined.. Waiting for the mail to start using it.
  • I hope their tile would use transparent tile and metro design. Btw, how long does it take to get permission to install the BBM?
    I still can't
  • The bbm team will sent you a mail so that you know you can download the app
  • Okay then. Thanks for the info!
  • I'm in! I've been waiting for this for so long! :D I din't think my Blackberry ID account would be active after so many years without using it. :)
  • Done... But that was a long ass registration process lol
  • I was very close to signing up but didn't bother. It just feels like another app that has come too late. No one I know even uses BBM any more despite only a few years ago most of my friends owning Blackberrys but they've sinced traded them in for Androids and iPhones (2 platforms that have had this app for ages).
  • Signed up
  • We're sorry, BlackBerry Beta Zone is not yet available for your country.  Please be patient as we continue to expand across the globe.
    I already hate BB.
  • LoL :D
  • I encountered the same thing :(
  • weird iam from india and iam phone is lumia 1020
  • :))
  • I remember using a free proxy to bypass this when I owned a BB. should do it. I'm from the Dominican Republic.
  • Whats the obsession with having BBM... isnt it just the same as whatsapp?
  • I remember having that exact opposite thought in 2010 or so when I was on Blackberry... How times have changed.
  • Security as you don't give out a username or phone number to people you want to add, just your BBM pin.
  • love the design.. gla they didnt just do a port like android an ios. hate that deign. Signe up and waiting for them to email!!
  • I don't really get the point of these apps. I can already send text and picture messages to all my contacts. I dint have to install a separate app or make sure they have the same app installed.
  • Yeah I have unlimited texts too but in some countries texting is expensive, especially international texting.  The carriers will have only themselves to blame when that easy revenue totally dries up.
  • Also, they're good for international messaging.
  • Little bit paining signing up via mobile, especially WP. You need a desktop to create BB beta zone ID. I think i could directly download BBM short after signing up. But no. I have to wait the confirmation, doesn't it?
  • Is there really no way of signing up via WP? Also getting that msg saying to use desktop
  • The beta zone sign up direct me to UC browser. And, it's just loading and reloading with no end. And, i move to desktop, and done for just 1 minute.
  • Use UC browser from starting it self . U can use WP for sign up. I done it.
  • i had signed up and completed the registration 1 hour ago, but still nothing happen now. No mail, no notification, no permission, no no oh no -_-
  • From Indonesia? We are such an obsessive people with BBM :v
  • Yes we are :v
    at least the good news is not BlackBerry skin extract :v
  • Every 10 minutes I tap that sync on my hotmail. Hope I can be the beta tester. :D
  • Waiting to download
  • I created a BlackBerry ID then joined their beta program then opted in for the BBM for Windows phone program, providing my Windows ID, then when I tried to download the app from the store I got an error.
  • They'll send you an email, if you are selected to be part of the beta, with the store link. It's why they ask for your store ID when you sign up to the beta program.
  • Signed up. Time to preach. Oh! Wait... Let's test first.
  • Cant wait.
    Omo naija
  • Feeling your swaggs Yinka !
  • i have already sign up but cant download BBM app in the store :(
  • Wait for them to email you
  • So long Joe, I haven't recieved it :(
  • Me neither but what can we do
  • Wew, You also cant download it? -_-
  • Unfortunately
  • tell me if you can download it :)
  • Sure mate you well be the first one to be informed
  • Well... All good news, but Blackberry Beta Zone is not available in my country...
  • Signed up too
  • "Thank you for joining! You now have access to this program."  - ok, so ... where do I download it now? Didn't get any links, it's not in the store... is everyone in the same boat here?
  • Wait for the approval...
  • signed up thanks
  • I have this massage..
    You will be notified when blackberry beta zone becomes available in your country..
    Any help
  • My registration didn't come with a massage :(
  • Same here
  • @Sam Sabri make sure to tell us when you get approved
  • I was already a member of BlackBerry Beta Zone as I joined last year when I tried to sign up for BBM beta on iOS but i never got it =( so I managed to register for this really quickly...hopfully I get to beta test this app =D
  • So the first time around, did they at least tell u that you didn't qualify?
  • The first time round I didn't get as far as being able to see it in my programs list which is what happens when they approve you.
  • Still gives me email validation problem but its validated..
  • I like that it looks nothing like the Android/iOS app. It genuinely looks like a windows phone app.
  • Signed up, getting an error that I don't have permission to join, hopefully or applications get approved shortly.
  • How long must I wait after signing up
  • Registered just waiting now...............
  • Did anyone try installing the app manually through the store using visual studio?  Trying to do so now.  WIll update.
  • Let us know if installing it manually works!
  • Just signed up. Figured they would've had this in the beta zone so I signed up for a bbid & linked it to a beta account the other day(thats such a messed up way of managing this)
  • I'm having such a hard time signing up I don't know what the hell is going on. I click on a link on the sun up page and it opened up UC browser on my phone. What the heck is that all about. Then i get a message saying it can't detect my pin. I'm done with this junk.
  • Same. And, i moved to desktop. It's done
  • By the time I get to a desktop I'm sure they won't be accepting anymore beta testers.
  • Be optimistic, bbm developers won't check the time you signed , they will make sure to test variety of phones and OS versions
  • Switch the IE on ur wp to 'Desktop version', worked for me
  • Which is the reason why having a Samsung, HTC or Huawei device is a good thing in this instance.
  • Do it on pc
  • It works
  • When I m singing up to beta it's saying can't detect pin can anyone,please help me out
  • Nostalgia
  • atlast done worked on pc
  • i made a Blackberry ID but i cant sign in, they tell me "Please note that this login may not match the BlackBerry ID used to log in at the previous step" while it's the same one !!
  • You have to create a beta zone id
  • You are well in your way/road/whatever.... Sign up for THE BETA ZONE which will make you put more details on your location... Then submit and accept the terms and conditions then submit again then put your phone infos then submit
    Then wait for the approval
  • Do it on Desktrop, it work
  • The only thing that's between me and exploding is optimism,, cmon Blackberry at least reply with confirmation or declination
  • I registered on the given link by providing all the required fields. But still not able to get the app from store!
  • You can't get the app from the store. You signed up, now if you are approved they will send you the download link over the email that you've provided and you'll be able to download then. Be patient
  • I signed up on my phone no problem. Idk if already having an ID made it easier or not.
  • Beta registered lets see if I miss BBM or is it all hype
  • I get the following: Welcome! Welcome to the BBM for Windows Phone beta program!   In this beta we'll look to test the first BBM experience on Windows Phone.  We want to hear what you think about the look and feel of the app, any issues you discover and where you want to see the BBM application go in the future.   Thanks for joining! BBM Beta Project Team   but then now link to download.... what do I do??? Is anyone else getting the same???
  • Congratulations. . Try to go to the older post on this site then download... Tell us what will happen
  • Ya I tried that already... I get the statard message saying:   Can't download Sorry, you don't have permission to download this app.   Any other ideas?
  • Try to open the email from PC to make sure that the entire mail is shown
  • I wasn't an email acctually... That came up on the website after I registered
  • I got the same message, but cant download beta.
  • So...
  • +925
    I also got the same response...
    I guess that when we gave them our market email/id they will whitelist our accounts in order to be eligible for beta download...
  • They should learn to be efficient like our preview for developers app lol
  • Ahh ok .. Sorry for the late reply... But if that is the case. Then it either we have to search the app or we haven't been approved yet but on the bright site.. I'm like you!!!
  • Me too getting the same!!!
  • Did anyone get a email link yet. Because I am waiting for hours
  • No one has yet.
  • All signed up and it said I was accepted to the beta but still csnd download the app. Anyone know how long it takes for your MS ID to be recognized?
  • well i managed to manually pull down the bbm.xap file but still couldn't install manually.. lol. was worth a shot.
  • Just joined. My first BB was in 2003. My last BB 2010
  • For everyone who has been approved by Blackberry... Congratulations :D!!! Even though I seem to be rejected.. I'm happy for you guys
    Don't forget to give us your reviews
  • What after the sign up????
  • signed up already!  
  • Signed up via WP device and it end to a total mess, so I try to signed up via dekstop and done! :D
  • Cool,
    Signed up
  • Any luck in downloading anyone? Daniel Rubino????
  • We have to wait until the next update of BBM WP beta
  • How do you know?
  • signed what?
  • RIM, we have a problem!? No patients!  Now remember, this is a beta and our expectation is that participants will help us make BBM for Windows Phone great by actively participating. If you’re not ready to report bugs, respond to surveys and provide feedback – better to wait just a bit longer for the full release. If you are excited to join the BBM for Windows beta program, please apply at BlackBerry BetaZone. Still waiting for the Viber beta, hope this one works.    
  • Has anyone actually downloaded the app? I didn't recieve the email till now.
  • You recived an email form BB?
  • You can install Bbm for android, because now Blackberry can instal android apps on it
  • Yes..easier to sign up via PC. Did all we wait...
  • ummm i signed in for the program .. now, how to get the BBM ? or will I have to wait for something?
  • Signed up. Any hints on when the download of the beta app can actually start? Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Singed up! Those who will get the access to beta version please do report the bugs instead of just using the app! :)
  • I've been working in Indonesia these couple of weeks and 50% of the people I meet request my bbm pin which forces me to embarrassingly admit windows phone doesn't have it yet. Can't wait to surprise them next week!
  • Hello all, I thought I ask here regarding anyone that might know how to retrieve their old BBM account. I had it on another carrier with a different number. I know I need some sort of info but if anyone has some tips as I don't recall the email that was used. Thanks
  • Secret question and answer.
  • Thank you lyubomeer. I try that but don't know if even recall it since my Blackberry Storm. Any other suggestions appreciated.
  • Just Signed Up Waiting For The Beta
  • I hope that I'm approved bcoz I really use BBM daily and still have a BBOS device active with BIS and I'm really looking forward to testing BBM for WP because I really use BBM not just trying it and figuring out who's on BBM
  • Finally, I can get my friends who moved from BlackBerry to WP back onto BBM; now to download the app.
  • Hehehe...I feel rather goaded...I wonder why the wait to download this shit! Damn!
  • Why a app of a dead company is so important?? Why people want it so bad????
  • i'm all for anything that promotes WP growth.
  • Take bbm n put it where the sun don't shine...its too late
  • just downloaded.. should i?
  • Wat?
  • Hahahaha... I bet this is going to happen as with the wp 8.1 beta, everybody is going to download the beta and use it as the final release... (not bad though...) i was a beta tester at bbm (when had BB) and their devs take feedback seriously even if its only one... Hope to see the same ethusiasm with wp apps
  • Even if its only one what? Feedback? Didn't quite get you.
  • Created my id. Confirmed it from the email they sent me. But I guess I am on the waiting list now since its full. So I won't get the link for downloading?
  • Welcome to the club. I guess we will, but after the ones that registered in time will do. Lets just chill and wait, that's the only option we got now :3
  • Did you register here:
  • Just registered. Thanks! Then was linked to the site where a message came up saying welcome to beta zone
  • Can only use UC browser to open beta sign-up, but UC browser cant load the page......this isn't a great start :|
  • Hmm, IE opens up the page just fine, though I don't have a BBM account just yet. Haven't received confirmation email to my Gmail. Anyone has any issues with that?
  • I done
    but its only register
    lets wait when we can able to download BBM from store......
  • Bah! It tells me "Program is currently full" on the page where I have to sign in. And it tells I will be put on the wait list. Is there anyone that had the same thing? Or am I just late, like always?
  • Looks like it must have filled up already...
  • Meh, too bad. Guess I'm gonna wait then. No big deal though. Never used either blackberry or BBM. Just wanted to check it out faster than others :S
  • Well i was lucky enough to get in. I too am curious to see what the big deal is with this app...people seem excited!
  • Exactly. Hope it's worth the wait. Although none of my friends use it here in Ukraine, so I guess I will just never use it after installing, lol.
  • The r many not only u .
  • Its that just register that we want like to join that beta just sine up and wait for BBM in story......
  • Wat?
  • it full already !!!
  • Yep, shame :( too bad I didn't bother to register at the moment I got a notification on my phone. That's what you get when you procrastinate. Bam! In 5 hours after the post it is full :(
  • Hey look, another beta app that'll stay in beta for over a year.
  • Tried allllll day to get a reset password link sent to my email and now the BETA IS CLOSED BECAUSE THEY ARE FULL AND NOW HAVE TO JOIN A LIST!!!!
  • It shows full I signed for waitlist . Hope i get chance .
  • They say the list is full, am gonna kill myself
  • I guess noone has the app yet, they maybe processing the first bacth to make way for the next batch. Am rubbing my hands in anticipation!    Its late in Canada and I think nothing will happen until Saturday 12 July 2014 (my time).   Discussion going on:
  • Well I just registered under the waiting list, just hope they pick me
  • Why is it in the coming weeks!
    We want it in the coming days :(
  • I thought i'd be excited for this. Then I realized I don't know anyone who has used BBM in the last 2 years.
  • It said program full already, so I registered myself on the waiting list.. hope to see something soon
  • For those who can do the maths, help me out with a guestimate, how many individuals were allowed in the first batch? It would appear there are very few individuals, judging from the numbers from this site!
  • Hmm same here...but I think so they wont sent the link it is n is always late but lets hope for it...n
  • If any1 gets the link do report here..
  • N how u get the mails on u r number I don't recieve any notifications.. I need to check the forum reguraly n I opened it today so I got to know n till the time I registerf list was full
  • Same here. Program is full. Signed up for wait list. Hope they will let me in to test it. I'm a user of BBM on my BlackBerry,but would love to try it on my Lumia. Especially it looks awesome on screens :)
  • i think i also signed up for wait list. how can we confirm? i mean there was nothing like "you have been signed up", no any email.
  • Already signed up, but still cannot download bbm app
  • same with me .
  • Program is full. Shit no !
  • Thanks! Signed up.
  • This is the worst registration page I've ever seen. I'm out somewhere and the registration process is broken on my phone's browser. IE or UC. Joining into Beta is impossible as the page opens uc browser and takes it into loop. I see waiting list now. I wont be home till Sunday and it's gone for me. :/
  • Badluck bro. Mine situation is also like you. We have no other choice but to wait which is very common in windows phone world.
  • I had the same issue...
    Incase you have an alternate mobile which runs other OS apart from WP can do the job.
  • Tried from my android device now it says blackberry beta zone not available in your country. Lol. I am from India.
  • LOL strange...
    Even am from India.
  • Blackberry should have cleared it earlier only that our beta version will launch in july not the main version. Now the beta is out i think one month of out for other users.
  • As much I love Blackberry they practically do not keep any of their promises. So no real surprise on this one either...
  • Nah, screw it... I'll wait & get it with everybody else
  • May I get a real reason why BBM is so popular. With so many texting apps available now, what makes BBM so special?  I ask here because noone has been able to give me a proper answer. 
  • +925
  • Bcoz people wants something new everyday
    And also they don't like whatscrap anymore.....
  • BBM is not "new".  Whatsapp / Line / Viber / hell even KiK works just fine. Only crippled app in this field in WP I can think of is Skype. Rest are pretty solid IMO. Now comes BBM from the grave. Just wondering why everyone's so excited. 
  • For me, Its not excitement per se. Its just because two of my close friends who I regularly chat with both have BB devices, and use BBM.  
  • Yeah i know
    But it's new for windows phone users
  • I mean in this related field. It's "another" IM app, despite BBM being around way before most of the apps now, it shouldn't make such a big impact rising from the grave now. Which is why I was scratching my head. 
    I assume it was really good back then and everyone signed up so seeing it rise again makes people happy. Understood! I might give it a try then :)
  • I am waiting
  • Now everyone wants to BETA test , #developers
  • I managed to get in on the signup which is great. I do use BBM on other devices. I can imagine that some of the folks that would also have real use for the app, but who were too late can legitimately be peeved they didnt get to sign up, due to a bunch of people signing up just because they could, despite having no interest in the app.
  • After so much waiting i m pretty sure that won't replace my whatsup anymore. By the way i m glad to see bbm on my windows phone.
  • +whatsapp
  • Add to pocket, BBM crew: Screw you and waiting!
  • Program full !! Waiting in wish list !!
  • Anyone able to download????
    I sign up but can't able to download from the store or no download link on webpage after i sign in
  • Ages have spent after I got approved but no further steps... I'm gonna contact them
  • Even I m from India bt I was able to sign in
  • For those who got approved.... I think I found out the way you can download it. Basically open blackberry beta zone from YOUR PHONE... You will see a downloads tap above.. Click it, if it was available you can download it... But if it wasn't then it's not available yet I don't think there is an email but I could be wrong
  • Nothing there :/
  • Meh... Me too but I recommend to check it frequently
  • Hi, your advise works on BB10 devices (I have a BB Z30) and was able to sign up and download the BETA for Mock It.    However doing the same from my Lumia 925 doesn't show a download button. In past occasions (the iOS/Android Beta) was through an email and they send you a link to an app that is unpublished, so I guess we will just have to wait. 
  • Hey, in that case then we should wait even more for them to launch the close beta app, wonder why did they take to long to make it available?
  • Did anyone receive the email yet?
  • Unfortunately
  • guys, where are you from? I'm from Poland and there is imposible to sign in to beta zone from my country;/  
  • So many people (have) faced thus problem... I don't know if they overcame the issue or didn't but either way, the petition is over... You can only put yourself on the wish list
  • Nie możesz się zarejestrować? Ja mam konto już dawno założone,jak jeszcze z BB korzystałem. Nie było problemów.
  • ja też mam konto jeszcze z czasów bb9000 z początku 2010 roku i nic nie da się:/  
  • Signed with my computer
  • Why does it say: Not available in your country? Wth!
  • I hope there will be design changes to this, I'm looking at those gross icons.
  • to anyone who can't sign in to beta zone, just go to IE setting and change the website preference from mobile version to dekstop version, you are welcome :)
  • I guess by the time we get approved for beta testing the official full version will be released. LOL
  • Most probably :) So it's better to wait the official version, right? :)
  • Not sure! I never used BBM and eager to try it, and also because I don't like WhatsApp. Lets wait for couple more days, I believe they just want to know how many are interested in using BBM on Windows phone. ;) BTW what will happen with Windows 7.8 users, will they get it too? :-(
  • Blackberry get the beta available...!! If you cant get the accounts for the beta synced then make it an open beta....!!
  • I'm sick of this... Waiting for nothing.. Cmon BB Ltd, why took so long?
  • need 3 X 24 hours to get the approval
  • 3 days... If that's the case, why is the petition is full? They should've make the petition longer!!! A day is the longest duration I can think of
  • no, there are so many wp users excited with this, no wonder if the program is full
  • still waiting~
  • Well more than BBM I'm waiting for windows phone 8.1 :/
    No news about it.
    I literally search for it every hour.
    Guys any idea about it?
    And the most awaited feature is the brightness slider!
  • my undestanding that it's up to your specific carrier as to when they're going to release it to your phone.. i just signed up for the preview for developers app and now i get the updates pushed directly from m$.... been running 8.1 for a while now and it's great... 
  • But my phone isn't branded by any carrier !
    It was simply purchased from a shop and is not related to any carrier. :/
  • then i guess you're just waiting for m$ to release the upgrade... when that is, i'm not sure... you could always push it yourself by signing up for the preview though but a lot of people aren't comfortable doing that..
  • I am using the developers preview already :P
    I want the official one cause I feel this is affecting my battery.
    Its just a preview not meant for daily use :/
  • Where are you from? Region?
  • aaaah.. gotcha.. i've noticed a few memory leaks here and there that's for sure..  i'm in ontario canada.. 
  • Aite.
    Hmm yeah !
    Can we expect something today since its Friday?
    Their favourite day to launch updates :P
    India was supposed to get update this week.
  • i'm all signed up and eager as all of you are.. but this process looks to be exactly like their android and ios process... the waiting list wasn't very long so i'd keep signing up if i were all of you.... i'm sure they're just trying to avoid millions installing the app at once and crashing their systems like the droid release... for those of you having issues signing up using your phone, USE A COMPUTER!!!  TIck Tock..Tick Tock...
  • Okay so I signed up
    But still cant download the app?
    Edit: Okay I get it now, have to wait for 3 days
  • They will select a few people out of those who have participated in the beta program. On what basis ? Nobody knows exactly.
    This basically refers to preparing a whitelist.
  • In internet explorer change the mobile version to desktop version to register by using windows phone
  • So I've been keeping my BlackBerry Z30 in a drawer while I've tested a Lumia 822 for the past couple weeks. When BBM is finally released for WP, it may just keep me for good!
  • I'm amazed by people not having patience. In the scheme of life this isn't the most important thing. I want BBM(I'm a fan of it) but if we have to wait that's what it is. We all will survive waiting. We waited this long.
  • ya it's kind of an odd occurance.  You don't hear much complaining until the product is on the verge of being released.  I've been googling bbm for windows phone for as long as i can remember and for the longest time, there wasn't much out there except articles stating that it was coming... now that it's a few weeks away, people seem to be burning down the neighbourhood with complaints of the beta taking too long to be released... it's quite amusing really...
  • LOL
  • Did any 1download. Beta version
  • I'm mad I registered and signed up and was in the program, then looked to download the app after that it said I couldn't download, I closed the beta zone acct and re registered now I'm on the damn waiting list. Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Just now installed..bbm
  • Are,any 1else downloaded kya/??
  • Sab sale bhag gaye...ab
  • Can't download after sign up..
  • When we will get beta version...
    When it will available to all...any news guys.!
  • Guys start installing it now, turn off your location and change your time to 24 hours...install and enjoy it.!
  • I registered for beta zone in time. But I can't find the app in downloads section in beta zone and test. How do you get the beta?
  • R u kidding all Bharat?//:p
  • It's not available for download.....bharat just stop giving false info....
  • Hahah he is fooling people manav..
  • I think they might be speaking about July 2015 itne time tak they might be testing it...:p
  • lol
  • Plis fast fast fast.!!!! I need bbm
  • The updated date of beta app is now as 15 July n if you enter the registration portal of bbm beta zone they say you are already a participant . So I think they gone a start soon now.
  • They say the same since Friday I signed up Thursday and I still waiting
  • ha I m also,a participant is that mean m selected as a tester..
  • I wonder why is it only for 8.0+... why won't they made for 7.8 as well? you can say roughly 30% of WP user, is 7.8 user...
  • Anybody get bbm yet?
  • Just installed
  • Am having difficulty loading this windows phone bbm beta registration page and if I load this page there's no icon for sign up or registration
  • Please! Support BBM Apps for my lumia 520 Black, OS version 8,0!??
