MyBlackBerry Registration Now Open For Everyone?!?

My BlackBerry Now Open For All!

MyBlackBerry was launched quite some time ago now and seemingly, off to a rough start. I really don't quite understand why RIM chose to make it an invite only system for so long, especially considering the fact they made the announcements and everything for it, though if I had to venture a guess I'd blame it on RIM's legal team for slowing down the process. In any event, it seems as though registration is indeed open for all at this time so if you have not signed up already, now is the time to check it out -- make it quick, just in case RIM decides to change their mind again.

PS: Feel free to laugh at Kevin for being considered a newbie ;)

yogi_bear

Is this open to the UK?

sevenpowers

Just choose Canada or US, I'm in Spain on Vodafone and it doesn't give me that option so I'm now in the US on AT&T ;-)

I've tried to register twice. Both times it takes me back to the home screen after I click submit and when I enter my email/password I get denied as no such user.

MD_Kearns

I had to try 2-3 times before it would allow me to register, so keep trying, seems the site is quite busy!

jlawler4

Got in after a few tries, RIM hates Google Chrome I can tell you that...

Griffspen

Worked for me and I'm in. Nothing has caught my eye yet.....

blak8830

sometimes just selecting from a pulldown menu kicks you out to the login page - seems like a seriously broken process

JDWallace

Sweet! After two clicks to register I'm in.

ozlonzo

Any chance of this being made available to users outside North America?

flamingkitties

Well I'm in the UK, but I picked USA T-Mobile and so far, I've not got my registration confirmation email - perhaps it's smart to my .co.uk email address. Arf.

With Internet Explorer,

With Firefox.. i'm registred but when I try to activate my account with http://config.path/activate.seam?email=user@xxxx.com &code=5da1117d2892c02b68806d57b9d84aca
nothing work !

If I try to register again...too many errors !!!

* error.notConfirmed
* Bienvenue, user@xxxx.com

Your session has timed out, please log in again.

JDWallace

I used Chrome and it worked

nothin2seehere

Errr, what is this? Seems like a simple social networking site for Blackberry users..just like, er, the site I'm on right now :)

miller7796

I give up. I keep getting an endless loop of going back to the login screen when I click submit. Part of the problem could be that we're still on IE6 at work. I'll try it at home tonight with Firefox, if I remember. Otherwise, I'll just stick with Facebook.

mccx33

I had to login with my USERNAME/password rather than EMAIL/password

GinaR1173

I don't see anything special about this. I can't even create a profile page! Better off here!!

ricgrego

Open just for US and Canada. :(

briankeith513

Yeah, guys, there seems to be a LOT of issues, with registering, logging in, updating profile info, and just about everything else. I finally got it to work, sort of. I'm sure the issues will be ironed out soon.

dmkerr

I have tried to register but about half way through it times out on me. Not Good.

AgentScribe

Look me up: same screen name as above.

All you addicts are clogging up and bogging down the system. :)

Another BlackBerry site that sucks on the BlackBerry browser. Great job!

The Consigliere

but not too impressed, nothing really stands out & says WOW I really needed to join this site. Oh well, maybe it will come in handy down the road.

bradley1972

got in after two attempts.

Yandar

There is some wonderful errors on the site. Go and have a look for Bold cradles and chargers. See what pops up.

bradley1972

what would be a good thing to have is a shortcut icon from your homescreen.

dmkerr

UGH Registration is impossible!!!!!!!!!!

j.p.hatfield

site shows error when you click to register....

j.p.hatfield

so they STILL have issues...nice job RIM

onlineaddy

I feel sad for RIM. They can't even hire a decent web developer. I am unable to register. Keeps complaining of timing out or some such nonsense.

hpbribeiro

Ok, any good reason for the country option only list United States and Canada? What about the rest of us?

aothapoet

1st attempt on explorer worked. chrome rejected 3 times

tnewton3

must be overlaoded with a bunch of people trying to register. I can't stand it being reset 5 times in 3 minutes.

Garbage.

Navan

I'm not up with the same user name I have on here!

eBud

so I worked through the questionaire from the bottom up. I'm in...ok, show me the magic...

belutz

bah... only US and Canada can register :|

experiment 626

Won't be replacing Crackberry or HoFo anytime soon. But it's got lots of potential.Had no problem signing up but the Forum is boring and the Threads are difficult to scroll thru.Still a work in progress.

sevenpowers

I'm in Spain on Vodafone and registered that I'm in the US on AT&T, just choose either US or Canada and a carrier and you're in...for what it's worth ;-)
I just don't get it why RIM would pull this crap for a forum, and like the Blackberry Blog it's lousy on the BB Browser, like I'm NOT going to view it on my Berry?

Lord Shaper

Does RIM not notice that people in other countries use Blackberries as well? I'm in Australia and when I went to register it gave me the option of either US or Canada...

I guess it's going to be a wait for this as well as waiting for Appworld!

Janye

The 8230 is not an option to pic for the pearl flip !

tritan

wow,IE only what is up with that? No firefox support? Come on Rim.

CGI

Whats the benefit of joining? I just don't see the value.

y0us3f

just for USA and CANADA :) no love for middle east !

redman12

Blackberry Pearl 8120 is not on the tab when I register...

vaughnq

Dont live in the US nor Canada and as a result it seems no one else outside of there exists. Cant register...

i4get75

Ok, I signed up, checked it out a few times today. The discussion boards are a wreck. Hard to find anything without scrolling through multiple pages. The app section is very lack-luster. The profile section leaves a lot to be desired. And you'd figure since it's a Blackberry social site that it would have some central hub for exchanging and meeting other users, but at last, it does not.

It gets an F for FAIL for me.

neiltluck

So how comes us UK residents don't get to play. Only US and Canada?

yeti#CB

when signing on u can choose username. when activated only ur real name shows. but there are folks that only show the username. probably from teh early, the closed testing days. no help section whatsover. no way to cancel membership again.
all in all, not a very userfriendly site. u need answers? stay here on crackberry.com and check the forums.

ddch

Bummer, You can't register unless your in the US or Canada
