    I am trying to add a friend to my messenger contacts and it says he exists but his name is not there?

    He tries to add me and its the same deal. I did just wiped my phone and reinstalled everything but I had to re-add all my BB messenger contacts when I did that for some reason. Why cant I re-add him? And why does it say he exists and he doesn't?

    I have only known this to happen with mix carriers. You will have to keep trying to add him or her until it finally gets through. I am also a Verizon user and have trouble adding Tmobile BB users. ATT is i don't have experience. I read this trouble in another forum a few months ago. You might consider doing a search on the subject. Sorry can't be more help.

    The best way I have found adding people is by adding them first the address book along with their pin number then when you add them as a contact on BBM you select them from the list instead of using use once. It worked every time I did it that way, if I did not, it was hit and miss. Good luck

    Also if you are not on OS 4.5 yet I would recommend you upgrade....

    Yep that's the way I'm always successful in adding people too. And if you don't want all those pin numbers in your address book, delete them once you get that person on bbm.

    Ok I deleted the contact completely, did a battery pull went in to BBM to add my friend and when I entered his pin and tried to send it it said that he already exists. OMG!! Coo Coo. I have had him as a contact before so I dont think its his work that is stopping this.

    Have you asked him to use the same method but to request you instead?
