In North America and just can’t wait until the clock strikes 12:01am on Sunday? Fortunately, there’s a very simple workaround to get BBM for iPhone now!

You need to simply change the country/region associated with your Apple ID. You can do this following these steps:

  1. Go into Settings
  2. Scroll to iTunes & App Store
  3. Click on your Apple ID and hit ‘View Apple ID’
  4. Here you will want to change your region to New Zealand
  5. Once you hit the billing section, select ‘none’ for the credit card
  6. Accept the terms of service and hit done
  7. Search for ‘BlackBerry’ and then click on the developer to see app list
  8. Select BBM and install!

Then once the dust settles you can simply switch back to your original App Store settings. Hope that helps and happy #BBM4ALL.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
