How to identify a BlackBerry ID Username

How-To

Can’t remember your BlackBerry ID Username?

Follow these steps to identify your BlackBerry ID Username, which will be in the format of an email address. The steps required will vary depending on which device you are using. If you don’t know which BlackBerry OS you are using, check out this post on how to identify your BlackBerry model and software versions.

Note: We do not recommend using a BlackBerry email address, such as user@<carrier>.blackberry.com, for your BlackBerry ID. Hosted email addresses filter password recovery emails as a security measure so you will be unable to retrieve your login information. If you notice you are using one of these addresses, please follow the instructions on this post to update your BlackBerry ID Username to a different email address.

    I have recently upgraded to the Z10. My previous BlackBerry I used a different BlackBerry I’D. Now I am unable to use BBM on the Z10, which I assume has something to do with the two BlackBerry ID’s. How do I resolve without having to wipe the Z10 clean?
    Regards
