How to get BBM icon on your iPhone

Please note: this is not a way to get the BBM app, you are only getting the icon.

So here's a simple step by step guide on how to  get the BBM icon on your iPhone. There's no practical point of this other than to trick your friends, but once they open up the app it will launch the image of the icon in safari. But is still looks pretty cool on your homescreen!



Step 1:
Search google images for "bbm icon". Choose any icon that has a black background. If you look, the first icon in the second row is what you will really need. Touch that picture then click on full size image or full screen.


Step 2:
Fiddle around with the picture. Zoom in and out and adjust the location. With a bit of trial and error you will be able to get the icon for the next step. Try and make it similar to mine. If you have no clue what I'm on about skip to step 3+4 then come back and you will understand what I mean.


Step 3:
Click on the button in the middle at the bottom of your screen. It looks like a box with an arrow pointing out. Then choose "Add to Home Screen".


Step 4:
Now you will be asked to type the name that matches with your icon. Make sure that the icon is in the right place. If you skipped step 3 go back to it and adjust it to make it look like an icon. Type BBM for the name of your icon and click on the "Add" button in the top right corner.


Step 5:
Thats it! Now you have a BBM icon on your homescreen. When you click on it, safari will be launched and you will be sent to the image.


Do you like this tip? I hope you found it helpful! Time to trick some friends! Enjoy.
