    I wouldn't advice you to do that. It is somehow buggy (bbm).

    Trying to set up BBM with the ID used to apply for the beta of BBM on Windows Phone.

    It spends over 10 minutes on "Setting up BBM" and still nothing.

    I've reinstalled the app, taken my phone out/on of WiFi and tried another BBID, but no success.

    Force closing the app just displays 00000000 at the top of the screen and crashes when I try to do anything.

    Please help me!

    Please post issues to the betazone forums, that is the quickest way to get feedback to the developer.

    Well I've downloaded and set it up. It feels off talking to my BlackBerry contacts off my Windows Phone now... But anyway, did anyone else find the sign up/in process extremely long? Could be due to lots of people joining but I just thought I'd put it out there. If anyone wants to make an official group for Windows Phone discussion that would be great too, my pin is 7cd65700.

    Noticed the same problem and reported it, they replied by saying it might be because of a bad network, well add me to any new windows phone group 7D3CBB21

    Some people shouldn't be beta testers... Especially if they have a low tolerance to bugs. Also I have noticed some have left bug reports in the review section lol...

    After using the app for a few hours, I feel that it puts skype to shame. How long has the skype app been around? Since 7.x?

    The bbm app has more features!
    I was surprised, was expecting to see a basic app with basic features. Overall I'm impressed for a 1.0 release.

    Like calling phone numbers?

    FYI the main purpose of Skype is the Video/Conference and calls to phone numbers, not chat/groups or anything else.

    But yeah, nice start for a first beta release.

    yea me too its a better release than the android 1.0 app honestly. when i was on andriod so imagine when its refined, gets voice calls and glympse location sharing and bbm stickers but i would make some changes to the UI.

    but its good enough
    when recording a voice note though it is slow to actually record

    That aside, there are features that skype is lacking - natively delete chat history, send pictures, timestamps to name a few. Plus compared to the ios and android versions, the wp version is severely lacking.

    Skype is another major brand asset, which they are not utilising to its full potential.

    Really good start. I like it. I hope they add the transparency option so I can pin it.

    PS: Report bugs to the BB team, don't go around giving it one star

    Either you missed out or have been put on the wait list as the slots filled up pretty fast. There are over 100 reviews now for BBM in the windows phone app store.

    I don't know how this worked. But I guess it was like this the people in the waiting list who were having old beta zone account got added to.
    As me and my bro both registered at the same time and we both were put in the waiting list.
    And I was added(I am a beta zone user from last 1.5years) and my bro wasn't(he just created account of beta zone that time).
