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.

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 BISFollow me on Twitter: @itsmetakuma089

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.

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.
