Released in 2005, BlackBerry Messenger is now a popular messaging client available for use on smartphones with different operating systems. Being one of the leading utilities for online communication, the program is currently gaining popularity due to its great design and tons of entertaining features. Most users benefit from using the application, making countless calls along with sending an unlimited number of messages to all their BBM contacts. However, some users might still need to close BBM accounts for their personal reasons. In this article, you will get all the information regarding deactivating your BBM profile for both iPhone and Android users.

The most important thing any user should know is that deleting the program from your smartphone will not remove your BlackBerry Messenger account. In other words, all your profile information and chatting history will remain on the program’s servers.
