    I can't seem to get any sound notifications working. My regular text message sounds are working. Anybody else have this problem? I have tried a reboot.

    I hope in the future this app will be updated so I can type in landscape mode. I hate typing in portrait!

    Once I am able to use the BBM app that's installed on my device, I'll try to troubleshoot it for you. However, I'm still waiting in line...;(

    I get notification sounds, and now I can only listen to music on my phone if I put it in Do Not Disturb :/ not sure what you issue is. Did you allow push notifications?

    Did you try the "trick" force closing the app then re-opening it? This worked for me and let me in pretty quick.

    I'm getting sounds. But the control is in settings>notification center>BBM app

    Music is working fine for me. When I get a BBM notification it just plays over the music

    Yeah, but the group I'm in is very active so it's every couple seconds of the volume going up and down.

    Yes, I allowed push notifications. I also have sounds turned on in settings>notification center>BBM. I think I'll try uninstalling the app and reinstalling.

    I was able to get it going without using the force close method. I merely selected that I had received the email and it took. Shortly thereafter, I actually received the email stating that I had moved to the front of the line....LOL

    Now that I'm all set up, I've received sound notifications when receiving BBMs.

    So you've given your PIN to others and are receiving BBMs from other phone other than iPhone or just iPhone right now??

    Ok, reinstalling the app worked! Now I have a badge and a tone. However, I thought the tone would be the same as my text tone and its not. The tone is too short and quiet. On my iPhone, I use legacy blackberry notifiers like bikebell, chigong, eager, etc. I was hoping I would be able to select my bbm notification sound but I guess I should at least be satisfied that the sound works now.

    I'm assuming they're iPhone users.

    I'm assuming BBM uses my data as opposed to my text package?

    The week is off to a great start-- BBM today, iPad announcement tomorrow! Yay!

    Touch the top where your Profile pic is and then go into 'My Profile' in the BBM app and change your name by backspacing out what they put in and putting in what you want

    Does it still use data if you are on wifi? I have unlimited data (for now) so it doesn't really matter too much to me, I'm just curious.

    Yes. The data of whatever Internet connection the wifi is using.

    It in no way is connected to your SMS plan.
