Congrats to BlackBerry Limted, in just 24 hours BBM™ has been downloaded over 10 million times by Android™ and iPhone® users, one of the best single-day openings for a mobile app to date. 

Finally, the day hath cometh! Below are the message from BlackBerry Limited to all those interested in downloading:

BBM Roll Out Details:

Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser*


Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line.


We will email you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM.


If you are among the millions that took the time to sign up at BBM.com, you can start using BBM immediately without waiting in line.* 



If you didn’t sign up in advance, don’t worry – we are focused on moving millions of customers through the line as fast as possible.

Our team of developers and engineers has been working around the clock to bring you BBM – and make some upgrades while we’re at it – and some incredible work has been done. I look forward to sharing more of this with you here, on Inside BlackBerry, soon.

For updates on how quickly the line is moving you can follow @BBM on Twitter. I will be back tomorrow with another post to provide you with an update on the line-up and to share more detail about the work the team has done over the last several weeks.

Lastly, thank you for your patience. We know you’re excited (we are too!) and we look forward to having you join us on BBM.
