    Default Red X after sending bbm contact a message

    Hi

    What does it mean when a Red X happens when I send someone a bbm message?

    The Red X is right beside the message I sent.

    Does this mean they no longer have bbm?

    Thanks

    The red x means your message was not delivered. There could be a problem with the recipient's BBM, or the recipient could have deleted you from his/her BBM contacts. If you try again later and continue to get the red x, and your BBMs to other recipients are going through normally, then it probably means the recipient has deleted you.

    I had this happen 3 times recently with friends in the Dominican Republic were mostly everyone has prepaid service. All 3 times it meant that they had not activated their internet so they didn't have access to BBM. Once they activated their internet, we were able to chat once again. If someone deletes you from their contacts, they completely disappear from your contact list so you are not even able to send them a message.

    Yep, usually a red x means the person you are trying to send a message to, no longer has a valid BlackBerry Data plan, or hasn't paid his/her bill, or simply has not renewed his/her service.

    If you delete someone from your list, then can still send you messages unless you also block them. Also works if someone deletes you from their list. If you have the person's PIN and sent them a message, you will get a notification that this person does not have you on their list, would you like to invite.

    I had this with my mate recently.

    She forgot to pay her bill. She paid it & the next day it was working as normal.

    Usually if someone has deleted you their profile will no longer be there in your contacts.

    It means that the contact you've messaged and got the red X mark means his/her BIS is isn't activated/active. IMO I had those with my other contacts who didn't activated their prepaid BIS

    Out here it just means that the BBM is paying for his social network on a daily basi and doesn't have a plan. Give them a day or two and they will be back as soon as they go gharge the account....or call you and ask for you to recharget. Don't fall for that one. It happens all the time.

    Default Red X when sending bbm

    I recently swopped my Torch 9800 for a Bold 9790. After setting up the phone I keep getting a RED 'x' when sending messages to only one person on my entire bbm contact list. This contact has a Z10. We've troubleshooted with my provider (I'm MTN prepaid & she's Vodacom contract), deleted each other's profiles from both sides and re-added from both sides with the same problem. We've also rebooted our phones, still a problem. I've cleared my event log and browser cache, and my issue persists. My Z10 contact sees that there are unread messages from me, and does reply (which I receive) but when I respond I get that dreaded RED 'x'

    Pleeeeeeaaaasssee HEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPP!!!! I'd greatly appreciate any assistance you guys could offer.

    Unhappy Confused!

    Hello,
    I have been reading about peoples dilemmas and problems with the red cross thing and found out that they have either deleted you or deactivated their account. Well, on my blackberry curve 9320, I have 39 contacts. 38 of them are working and the other one is my boyfriend so to be honest, I don't think he would of deleted me. The last message he sent me was before I went to a football match and when the match had finished, it wouldn't let me reply. He would of said morning by now or something but nothing has come through. Every single message I try to send to him has a red cross next to it.

    I am sure he wouldn't of deactivated his account because he only got the phone, recently on his birthday!
    Please help!

    HI GUYS I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE PROBLEM IS!!!!!!!

    I found out today that when I went to ring one of my friends today the voicemail computer said that I haddn't paid my bill so, what you have to do is ring one of you're friends and it should say:
    'Hello there can I just comfirm the number you're calling from today is *your number* and then if you press 1 or 2 it should say that you haven't paid you're bill so you CAN'T text or ring or bbm people OR use the internet so PAY YO BILL.just so you know its not if someone has deleted you because when someone deletes you their contact is removed from you're contacts list so don't just make stuff up.

    Please reply with feedback and any problems you may have
    Hope I helped!
