Where To Download BBM 8
You can download the latest BBM from Blackberry AppWorld here.
From you Blackberry device, you can also launch the AppWorld app and upgrade your BBM from there. After installing the BBM upgrade, give it a little time to resyncronize all your contacts, etc. Also reboot the device by removing the battery.
If you try upgrading from BB World and your Blackberry eg curve 9360 is showing update not available for your device, it simply means your BB cannot handle it. So, don’t force it on it. You can consider buying a new BB.
If after upgrading your BBM, you realize you don’t like it, you can downgrade it back to your OLD BBM.
