    What does the red circle with a white line across mean next to a BBM contact. (looks like a don't enter symbol)

    Second what is or was the original purpose of the "ping" function? Why is it still here?

    That means they are "unavailable" technically and the ping was just a way to send a signal that is set to a certain sound on the recipients phone and it would vibrate. Im not sure if there was a good technical reason behind it.

    It means they're busy (like their status says) and you're not supposed to bother them. The symbol is like the international driving symbol for "DO NOT ENTER", as in, it's a one way street and you'd be going in the wrong direction if you entered.

    OK so what triggers the activation cause they aren't aware it is happening. Can it be carrier generated? They are on an IPhone using BBM

    Click on the name and under the 'status' tab, change it to 'available.'

    Also, the ping is used to get someone's attention. Remember the nudge on msn? Kind of like that. It doesn't function the same way as it would on a BlackBerry though. I've tested it with my friends iphone.
