Enjoy the excitement of the world’s most important football tournament with BBM
From June 12th to July 13th, the world will be all about football, and BBM offers its users new and fun ways to communicate and stay tuned with the great conversations surrounding the tournament.
Support your favourite team with new BBM sticker packs with fun team illustrations. Starting this Thursday, June 12th -throughout the day- when users enter the BBM shop, they will find packs of stickers from the following countries: Brazil, France, United States, England, Colombia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Argentina, Ecuador, Spain, Honduras, Holland, Germany and Australia.
Additionally, as part of this sports celebration, don’t forget the BBM short cuts for traditional flag icons. Users can add a flag icon of their favourite team when writing in the “Write a message” field or in the “profile name“, as well as in “what are you thinking” fields. To do this, you only need to enter the country code in any of the fields listed and it will appear automatically.
A few code examples are (all need to include a star at the beginning and at the end): *BR* to get Brazilian flag, *MX* for Mexican flag; *CO* for Colombia, *VE* for Venezuela and *AR* for Argentina. The complete list of country codes can be found in this previous post from the BlackBerry Help Blog.
As the excitement of the big tournament is everywhere, now BBM users can share their PIN and support their team through the BBM PIN Card Creator. BBM PIN Card Creator is a tool that allows you to create BBM contact cards that are as original and creative as you want them to be. This season you’ll be able to personalize your BBM contact card with a country theme. Share your PIN card with friends through Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter or via email and add them to BBM.
