BlackBerry Message Tavares TODAY

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

The Islanders are teaming up with BlackBerry to create a unique promotion—“BlackBerry Message With Tavares.”

Beginning today at Noon, fans will have the opportunity to text questions and comments to John Tavares on his BlackBerry. “BlackBerry Message With Tavares" will last for one hour.

BlackBerry Messenger is an instant messaging program for BlackBerry-to-BlackBerry communication. It allows two people with BlackBerrys to chat in real time, anywhere in the world,  as long as they have data service. BlackBerry Messenger comes preloaded on most new devices. If your device does not have the program preloaded, you can download it here.

Register today and add John Tavares as your contact:
  • Open up BlackBerry Messenger and click the track wheel or trackball depending on the device you have. In the drop down menu, select ‘Add a contact.’
  • You will be brought to your address book. At the top of the list there will be an option that says ‘[Use Once]’. Select this option and a menu will appear.
  • Click ‘Request by PIN.’
  • On the next screen you can enter 3042F140 and press ENTER.
  • You will be prompted to enter a personal message if you choose and press OK.
  • At this point the contact will be added to the pending group in BlackBerry Messenger until Tavares accepts you.

Due to the high text volume anticipated during this promotion, we can not guarantee that everyone will get a return text from Tavares.
