Blackberry Messenger is preloaded on every Blackberry, the 8330 has BBM 4 installed. If you want the latest BBM 5 you can download it from the Blackberry App World. If you do not have the App World already installed, you can download it from on your phone.


thanks, I know all BBs come with the BBM, I just want to make sure it wont automatically update me to the BBM, I dont like the layout.
