Just an FYI for those of you making use of BBM Music:

That is all. Carry on.

FYI: BBM Music is currently undergoing server maintenance


I can still listen to my 50, but can't grab anyone else's music. Didn't actually realise the magnitude of how much of other people's music I listen to until it was taken away from me. BBM Music: please come back online before my hour long bus ride home.

I am a big BBM music fan! Love the option to "store all songs on device" for those times when I am out of coverage.

Thanks for the outage notice RIM.

Hopefully this means BB Music is going to be available soon. I have a small group of BBM contacts that want to try it. I'm ready.

Hi @guerllamo7,

Alex from RIM here. I’m happy to let you know that BBM Music has now launched in the United States, Canada and Australia. I’ve been a beta user of the service the past couple of months, and I love being able to discover new music thanks to the playlists my BBM friends have made.

Our Inside BlackBerry Blog has more information about the launch, so stop by when you get a chance and get yourself started: Enjoy!

Alex, RIM Social Media Team

Its not available anywhere in the world yet! Its only in beta and available with invites only...its not even launched!

Impressive!! First an email telling me it wasn't working... Now an email stating that the maintenance period has been extended... What's going on with RIM... I've never been so informed!!

From RIM: Please be advised that these annoying notifications will stop once BBM moves out of beta and is released to the general public to insure consistancy across all of our products (sorry, couldn't resist, but I do love my 9900 and Playbook). I hope they can keep up these notifications, it looks good on them.

I am hoping they are working on getting released to everyone. LET MY PEOPLE IN!!!

I will miss not having to pay for music, even though I have only been there two weeks...still pretty cool app and way of sharing/listening to music.

Too much to hope for?
