BBM for iOS update now available, bringing Custom Pins and more

Last updated:

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Recently BlackBerry released several new customization features for BBM for Android and BlackBerry 10 and those customisations are now available to iOS users.


After upgrading to the latest BBM, you’ll see a new section in the BBM Shop – Subscriptions. Subscriptions are additional purchasable BBM features that are based on a recurring fee. There are two subscriptions that will be available at launch – “No Ads” and “Custom PIN”.

No Ads

Advertisements can be removed from BBM for $0.99 USD per month with the No Ads subscription. This subscription removes all ads from your feed, and you will no longer receive sponsored invites from our partners.

Custom PIN

With a Custom PIN subscription you can make a PIN that’s easy for you and your friends to remember and/or says something special about you. Custom PINs have to follow certain guidelines. They must be 6-8 characters long, and can include numbers and letters only. Special characters cannot be used and PINs are not case sensitive. A Custom PIN subscription is $1.99 USD per month.

BBM users with any active subscription get another little bonus – a badge on their avatar to show off their premium status.

Check out the benefits of a Custom BBM PIN.
