    Most of the people has in their contacts list only Contactname + Phone number. So BBM will never find a match. Only if you have an emailaddress of a friend.

    So I like to see this feature:
    - Give all BBM users a pop up to add their phone number
    - If you don't want others to find your BBM ID based on your mobile phonenumber, you must have an option to disable it.
    - NO automatic match, but make a list of suggested contacts
    - So you still have to invite people

    Do you like this idea or do you have some suggestions? Please comment

    Yes. I'm for it. It is much easier to add contacts.

    <shrug> I don't see the point. I concede that if you want to add contacts just to have more contacts, being able to do so by phone number might be easier; but in the end, the phone number is just another way to contact someone to obtain their PIN.

    Personally, I really like the idea that my phone number has nothing to do with BBM. I actually have eight BBM contacts with whom I've not shared my mobile number (and vice versa). My phone number isn't sitting in a database, and if I were to change phone numbers or carriers, I don't have to fiddle with anything on BBM.
