As of now, only those who have pre-registered or have a special invite can access and use BBM on iOS or Android. However, CNET has discovered a simple workaround so that you can bypass that wait list and start enjoying BBM today! Simply follow the steps below:
1. Download and install BBM on your iOS or Android device.
2. Open the app, enter your Email address, click NEXT.
3. Now you will want to force close the app. You can force close on iOS by double-clicking the home button and swiping the app upward. On Android, open multitasking menu and swipe the app away, or go to Settings, Apps, BBM, and click Force Close.
4. Now relaunch the app and you should now have the ability to create an account and get assigned a unique PIN number for your new account.
Once you are up and running you should start adding contacts and finding groups to join. Our BBM forums are the perfect place to start!
