so my best friend just bought her blackberry few days back, and shes now clueless on where to start. being me, the kindness of all, im going to teach her steps by steps (here) in the process of transforming her into a bb "BIMBO" :)
first of all, theres no use of owning a blackberry if u haven't got your internet connection from your provider. i don't know how things work in Malaysia but all u gotta do is just give them a call or something and get yourself connected first! then only we can proceed to the next page!
ok lets talk about the most interesting features, the infamous BBM (blackberry messenger) :D BBM is simply an instant messaging program for blackberry-to-blackberry communication (ehem!) It allows two people with BlackBerrys to chat in real time anywhere in the world so long as they have data service. There is no per message charge like there is with SMS; messages are sent through RIM servers similar to email messages! (so babe yes, u MUST register your BB for an internet connection)
how to start? all u gotta do is go to the OPTIONS>STATUS>PIN code. so if someone asked for your PIN to start BBM-ing with u, theres where u'll find it :) or, if you are requesting a contact by email, u simply need an email address associated with their device and then VOILA! u can start conferencing with ME and whoever owns a blackberry :)) sounds complicated, no?
one of the things that i love most about BBM is that, u'll receive photos from your friend INSTANTLY (tho u are THOUSAND miles apart) without having to wait for it to upload unlike any other instant messengers (ym, msn,...) so its like, if u are having a fashion emergency anywhere and need a girlish opinion, just snap and send! u can even be part of gossip girl community if u are in the upper east side. SPOTTED! hahaha!
but dont worry, to those who are not using a BB, we dont do discrimination! as for me, i got my ym and msn activated as well, so we can pretty keep in touch with each other every now and then! heheh! ok enough for now, i need to go shopping ! wait for my "emergencies" bb bimbos :D ;D
