    you cant simply add someone as a bbm contct to my knowledge. i belive they have to accept your request and that is why it's pending.

    You need to contact your service provider (the phone company) and pay for a Data plan (in other words, the internet). There is no other way to make BBM work.

    While that is true, it's the WRONG answer here.

    The OP does not have a BlackBerry Data Plan.

    Thus ALL the Contacts will stay pending forever.

    No BlackBerry Data Plan equals no BlackBerry Messenger.

    BBM does not use your carriers network to transport messages, that is true. It is strictly a BlackBerry service as it is their servers that process and deliver the messages, HOWEVER, it is your phone service provider that grants you access to the BlackBerry Internet Services, including email and BBM.

    Nope. PIN messages are transmitted via the RIM (BlackBerry) infrastructure as well.

    You must have a BLACKBERRY Data Plan for that as well.

    That will depend upon the carrier. Some will allow a grace period, some will not.
