    Does anyone know what it means when you scan a group barcode and it says "waiting for join response..." ?? it's done that with all the groups i've tried to join and doesn't do anything beyond that.

    When you scan a BlackBerry Group barcode, a request goes to the host of that group. The host can accept you if there are less then 30 members currently, or can not accept you, leaving you waiting....

    Check with the Group host.

    does this happen if the barcode is already used? because as far as im aware only one person can use a barcode before it expires

    never heard of the 1 use per barcode but usually what happens is if the admin or admins aren't in the group anymore or the group is full the request never goes through since it's only sent to admins for approval

    Yes just 30. Well have fun with being a group of 30, I was...and all I did was lag...even on my 9700 it sucked. So no groups, just the friends I want to keep and talk to. Hopefully they can fix the lag one day...doubt it anytime soon though. But that was my experience. Also was in a conference with...god damn 80+ people, LAG!!!!

    Thing I can't stand is that you can't shut off notifications. 20-30 person groups almost always have some sort of activity so I almost always have those lame little group icons in my recent-activity-notification-area. I don't like 'em.

    You can go into the group details and scroll to the way bottom and adjust/turn off notifications there, .

    That's only for message list integration, as far as I can see. I have v.33 of BBM 5.0 I don't know if .57 has it. It's not the message list integration I care about, it's the new activity notification on my home screen that I don't want to see.

    There is also a checkbox reading, "Turn off all notifications for this group.". Check that and you won't even get LED flashes.

    ok I'm not seeing that.. must be on a later version. Don't really want to upgrade since I hear the latest versions of BBM are wack.

    Hi, I updated my blackberry bold (9750) a few months ago when i got a new one and when I restored it and began to use it, the groups in BBM went restored. I could see the groups and joined them again but 2 of the groups would have "waiting to join" under the group. So if I tried to enter the group it would tell me that I have to wait until a member deletes me and then adds me once more. there is nothing I can do and I don't know how to fix it so it removes. I got contacts to re-add me to the other groups, so now I have doubled groups. The working group plus the "waiting to join" group.

    Anyone ever come across this or have a solution? PLEASEEEEE HELP !!!!!!

    I have the same problem. I upgraded to the Bold 9900 and restored the BBM contacts on the new device. There is a BBM Group that shows the following message:

    Waiting to join...

    When I click on the message, yet another message appears that reads as follows:

    This group is being recovered. Please wait until one of the members removes you and allows you to re-join.

    It appears that the organizer of the aforesaid BBM Group has abandoned it because I cannot get him to remove me.

    Am I stuck with the Waiting to join... message?

    I created a group and had to swap my device. My old PIN got deleted somehow ( no one knows {only 6 people} who deleted it) and I could join the group back with my new pin. But now , no one is the admin there anymore.

    Any solutions for creating an administrator?

    If nothing, all will leave this group and create a new one ....
