BlackBerry Messenger resumes rollout
MANILA, Philippines - BlackBerry announced on October 21 that it was resuming its rollout of BlackBerry Messenger (BBM).
The company explained the leaked version "resulted in volumes of data traffic orders of magnitude higher than normal for each active user and impacted the system in abnormal ways." The company stopped the rollout for a month to resolve the issues.
BlackBerry currently has a system in place for its rollout process. Those who have signed up on BlackBerry's site prior to the rollout can use the app immediately after downloading it.
New prospective users are asked to input their email address upon starting the app. They will be sent an email once their account goes through the queue and will be able to use the app once the email comes in. - Rappler.com
