Blackberry Application Suite is supposed to allow you to do this but I can't find it anywhere on their site.... I don't think it was ever officially released

I'm looking at this site to see if I can get BBM to work on my WinMO 6.5

bbconnect_wm6_pro_4.0.0.90.cab has so far locked up my phone ;)

it's stuck at the welcome screen - anyone know how I can go back? (battery pull didn't fix it)

lol .... these blackberry guys are smart and shrewd.

I didn't try bbconnect on my Omnia, but I have been using it on my HTC TYTN II in the past... the app is working fine IF this is the only mail you want to retrieve... My issue is that I wanted to retrieve mails from a BB service, in parrallel with my gmail account (IMAP) and an exchange server... and this sucks, because bbconnect needs to connect to a specific BB APN, and other mail services need to connect to your standard operator's APN, which means most of the time, you are simply not connected to the right APN and either one or the other service doesn't work...

I worked-around using emoze in order to retrieve my company's mail over OWA (as they don't allow IMAP or POP, and I can only configure one exchange mailbox on my wm6.5) !

4.0.0.106 worked on my phone, but it didn't give me a PIN number to use (said something about pending)

has anyone been able to successfully use bbm on their WinMo phone without a BES or BIS?

I tried that on mine, however nothing showed up on the programs screen except "blackberry lock"... have there been any new developments with this? I would really like to use BBM on my new omnia

Hi. I have the HTC touch pro..how do I go about geting the blackberry mesenger software for my phone

You do need to have a Blackberry PIN or plan for this to work though.

Edit:

Is HTC not same operating system as omnia

HTC don't make an Operating System. Both devices run Windows Mobile. The difference between the two is the hardware and pre-installed apps among other things. Both Samsung and HTC are phone manufacturers who manipulate the OS they put on their devices. The OS itself is made by Microsoft.

I'm afraid it is not possible to get BBM working on WM. The apps you're talking about, Blackberry Connect, will only get you BB style push email. Problem is, requires either BES or BIS, and it connects to its own APN (or whatever you call it), only mail and pocketIE work with it. Sucks....

Blackberry application suite, would probably get you BBM, yet for start... it only allows BES, not BIS (apparently there where to versions, BAS personal, and BAS professional. Only professional got leaked). But even with BES, no one was able to pass the registration screen, and RIM abandoned the project.

So...
