Does it work for someone ???
I have had very bad luck with these Hybrid BBMs. The Beta 188.8.131.52 has been stable with me for 2 months! I love it! Very snappy while scrolling through contacts and I personally have experienced no errors.
Anyone who wants to become a member of the BlackBerry Beta Zone and is having difficulty because of the country he resides in, feel free to send me a PM and I will hook you up.
Make sure to send me your First and last name, email address (that will be used for verification) and BlackBerry Device + PIN # as those will be associated with any keycodes RIM sends you when you try out their apps.
the system is unfair.
Why would someone living in the USA for example be able to test the latest BBM / Facebook, but people living elsewhere are not. This is pure racism, or does RIM think that people living on the other side of the world illiterate?
Heck, 90% of the users just sign up, install the latest apps, and forget about the Beta Zone, not really doing their job by proper Beta testing / reporting bugs.
Just my 2 cents, This is why, I have my own way for registering members from any place in the world
I think it's more on the lines of convenience. Beta zone is a English site with English support from a company started in a English speaking country. The Beta Zone would have to expand support for many languages if they opened it up to the entire world. Which could happen in the future.
