    Just not sure how I can see if any contacts on other platforms have picked up or will pick up BBM. How does one do this? When I first set up BBM it propagated automatically my contacts with BBM. Anyone help me out on how to do this?? Thanks

    Not old contacts, just any new ones from my existing contact list. I am trying to find out if anyone in my contacts has downloaded!BB M once it lands. I went into contacts and it shows a ton of people as unavailable, my wife included, who is an existing BBM contact. Just thought there may be a way to refresh contacts to bring up any new BBMERS.

    It's not precise though. You will find there some old BBM users that dont have BBM anymore.

    That only appears when you have actually added a new contact, not when someone installed BBM on their non-blackberry phone.

    As for those suggested by BBM, correct me if I'm wrong but that only happens when you have your BlackBerry connected to Facebook. It checks your contacts, and IF they have connected BBM to Facebook, then you can see them in the Suggested area.

    I think you're wrong. My BBM it's not connect to FB.

    They need to invite you to bbm, so you have to give them your pin, or they give you there pin and u invite them....it does not auto populate contacts cause it doesn't use phone # that are in your contacts already

    Contacts app tracks email addresses in your contacts, if there is a BBID related to that email, it suggests a possible BBM contact. Also suggests as a BBM contact if a pin is stored in the contact record. No guarantee the BBID or pin is current, though.
