    When I go into BBM and click on invite only a few of my contacts are listed.

    Is there any way to refresh the list or make BBM see all my contacts?

    I only got my Q10 a few days ago and have never had a BLackBerry before so apologies if it is a really simple thing to do and this is a dumb question.

    Hi! And welcome to Crackberry!!! Are you not seeing contacts who you have already invited, or are you not seeing contacts who are in your contact list?

    Thank you for the welcome.

    I am not seeing contacts who are in my contacts list. I have tried saving contacts to my SIM and just having them on the device but neither seems to make any difference.

    Ah I think I see.

    With BBM, you need to send your contacts an invite. You can do it with their PIN or with their email. If you've used WhatsApp in the past, you might be familiar with how the app scans your contact list. BlackBerry doesn't do that, you need to invite them because BlackBerry doesn't scan your contact list.

    When I click the + it shows some of my contacts but not all. I just found that if I start to type a name next to 'to' then it shows that contact even if they don't show up when I click the +.

    It isn't a big deal really, I think I am just a bit OCD. Thank you for your help.

    I was just going through the app and it looks like the contacts that show up after I press + are the 'suggested' contacts. That would explain it.
