    I'm trying to add my boyfriend to Blackberry Messenger, I enter is PIN number in and send a contact request but he never receives any message of any sort. It just sits in pending. Even if I attempt to send him a message it doesn't work. Whats wrong?
    Any help is appreciated .

    Also, if you two are using 'Pearls', make sure the name you chose does not have spaces or funny characters in it...

    I've reviewed the link posted above, but it doesn't say anything about getting somebody OUT of the pending slot. My hubby & I both got new 8130s for Christmas, and although we receive PIN messages from each other, we're still showing in 'pending' and not in 'conversations' and I don't understand what we're doing wrong.

    Did you add using PIN? When you add a contact it will take you to your address book. Highlight the contact (don't click on it) and then hit the menu key (left of trackball.) Then select Request via PIN.

    I am having the same kind of trouble... I sent a PIN to my friend he got it and can see me but when I message him it goes to busy or idle basically with the little clock. He says he gets the message and replied to it but I never got it. Is there any fix for this? I know he has one of the first Pearls and I have the newest... Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    i have a 8330 curve and my bb is always a pain in the **** to add contacts. But, how come I can send 2mB picture files but can't send a 54kB audio file? I received a message that the limit is 15kB. I ended up using another messenger.

    Yeah I did get this to work. I h ad him delete me from his BB and I deleted the whole messenger and re-installed it. I had him send me a request and now we are golden. I am really not sure what was up with it but it was pretty annoying.

    Having same problem as above with my wife. Two Pearl 8100's.
    Both running latest OS now.
    Adding eachother by PIN doesn't work.


    Problem solved by uploading the new 5.0 BBM !!!!!!!!!!

    There is no 5.1 OS, and from your post I have to asume you have the leaked 5.0 on your Curve. The latest BBM, 5.0.0.57 will work all 4.5 and higher OS. I have had apps mess it up as you describe, and my best solution is to delete BBM, and install it again. As long as you have remote back up enabledf, it should go smoothly.

    I've had that problem on some OS, and usually clicking on the contact in my message folder got it going. When that fails, rebooting is the only solution.

    Hi I am having some problems with my Blackberry Messenger on my Bold 9700

    1. Contact pictures - I can now long see any pictures of my contacts on BBM
    2. Sending pictures, If I send a picture I have taken with my Bold it will send fine, if its one I already had on my memory card...when I click send it just goes back to the conversation.
    3. Remote back up of contacts, I am trying to do a remote backup of my contacts and it is not working, the email address is registered to my Blackberry acount

    I have done battery pulls, reinstalling BBM, doing a security wipe etc and I am still having the same problem

    Does anybody have any ideas/

    Thanks
