    Have you checked your download folder, applications, etc?

    Have you checked to see if it's hidden? from app screen...BB button, then "show all".

    Is it showing in your applications menu?

    btw...what theme are you using?

    You are running a pretty old OS...depending on your carrier, there are newer ones available...(see our download tab top of page). I would think you would have an instant messaging folder, and would try to download a free theme..(see our theme forum), and see if an instant messaging folder appears, and if BBM is inside. I will put in a "help request" for you to see if any of the other Staff here has any other ideas...try what I suggested, if you want, and keep an eye on this thread as others should respond.

    The consensus is you need to update your OS to run BBM 5.0

    check this out first...http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...es-videos.html

    Then check out DOWNLOAD tab at the top of the page..got to your specific device, and carrier, and download new OS.

    READ and understand the tutorial...and follow the steps,( don't skip any) and you should be fine.

    Good luck !!!
