Moving Your BBM Contacts From Blackberry To Android BBM by networkgenuis: 1:19pm On Oct 23, 2013
Finally, the much awaited king of IM(BBM) has been made available on two OS platforms apart from BlackBerry OS.

This post is targeted at former BlackBerry users who will like to move their BBM contacts to the BBM running on Android, and also current BlackBerry users who will like to port to Android OS now that BBM is available on that platform but are torn between the devil and the deep blue sea on what will become of their contacts following such great move.

Worry no more as NG has brought to you an easy and seamless way to move your contacts to the new BBM for Android.
...BRB

Every BlackBerry user has a unique BlackBerry Identity(BBID) which is linked to the email address you used to register for that service.

To have your old contacts on the new BBM for Android, download and install BBM on your device and log in with your previous BBID, that is it.... lol, yes it is as easy as that!

Note that your P̸I̸N̸ needle will change, but your contacts won't even notice it as your new pin will be updated on their contacts automatically cool

Lol
How about deleting the BBM you installed on your Android?
Or, you can just log into your BlackBerry device with your BBID. They will log you out of BBM on Android as you can Oly use your BBID on one device at a time.
Cheers

Log out your BBM? You don't have to. Just download on your Android and log in with your BBID. You will be automatically logged out on your BlackBerry phone.

Bro, even die-hard BBM critics knows this.
Why do you think BBM became the number free app on playstore just few hours after it was released?
