BBM Beta for BlackBerry 10 updated with Vanity PIN, options to remove Ads and Avatar Badging


Not only did the BBM for iOS Beta get updated, BBM Beta for BlackBerry 10 was also updated adding more or less the same features including one addition; sharing multiple pictures in BBM Group Chats. The same applies for the BB10 update; the Vanity PIN feature will cost $1.99 on a monthly basis (recurring fees) and to remove ads will cost $0.99. These prices aren’t final and can change. Again, for those that are eligible, you will see the update on BlackBerry Beta Zone.


  • Vanity PINs: have a fun idea for a PIN? Looking for an easier PIN to communicate with friends? Try out this new feature and customize your own personal BBM PIN!
  • Remove Ads: hide sponsored ads and sponsored invites in BBM with this subscription.
  • Avatar Badging: Show off your special BBM status with a badge. This badge also appears on display pictures that have an active subscription.

It is noted that updating to this version of BBM will wipe chats.
