    try resending service books or by using the dm unistall bbm and then reinstall it. also you do have a data plan right?

    actually, i would like to try adding a contact after updating to 4.5. i have 3 people on mine now and i don't want to delete them and retry because...it would be a hassle for them.

    anyone want to PM me their PIN so i can test? thanks. someone who will not give out my PIN info please! i'm super paranoid!

    i see that after downloading OS 4.5 the method for adding BBM contacts changed. or is it just me?

    yes, my BBm contacts did not delete either.

    but the method to add has changed.

    so far i cannot add new contacts using this new method with the 4.5 OS upgrade.


    EDIT: whoops, it DOES work. thanks, trucky!

    You're welcome chrisy...

    And for anyone else with 4.5, there is a drop down menu when you Add Contact to BBM. It defaults to Search which will search your Contacts list for the PIN you put in but you have to roll up to Add by PIN and all is well once again.
