    Why can't BB make it simple to add/recognize all kinds of friends/contacts by phone #? BUT...instead of showing your phone # to everyone it recognizes, it converts or hides the phone # and only allows adding by pin #. So...it will recognize many more people but will still be more private. It recognizes phone # in the background but only allows adding by pin #. It does't have to show every phone # it recognizes.

    Not the same as what you are suggesting, but you can add by phone #, via SMS.

    Because BBM advocates for contact by invitation and consent only. There are people, such as business acquaintances that have my cell number, but I would not want to be connected to them through Instant Messaging.

    Leave well alone.

    It defeats the purpose of securing personal information.
