    Better to ask and get the most out of your berry than letting it all pass you by. In BBM, press the Blackberry button and select add contact. You need to know their email or PIN. An easy way to send your PIN in an SMS is to type "mypin" without the quotes and send it to your soon to be BBM contact.

    As a BB newbie, I highly commend to you the Blackberry 101 lectures here.

    See...I'm so confused now...I added my son and daughter and I thought I knew what I was doing...but today I don't know what I did other than hooked it up to my daughters desktop messanger and tried this and that...I think I synch my email and I don't think I should have...now I have all my contacts from my email on my phone and visa versa...and when I did try to do that it didn't ask me about a pin it went right to her email address...

    I'm actually going back to the store on Mon for an hour class on this phone...lmao

    The red star (i'm assuming your talking about) just means you have a message that is un-read. Go into your sms and click on the message that is in bold text. the bold text denotes that you haven't read it. So basically the red star is letting you know you have a message that hasn't been read or is new.

    Hope that helps you!

    It sounds like you could benefit from reading through the "Newbie" section. There are "how to" articles in the Blackberry101 Lecture Series, check 'em out. You'll learn TONS, including how to do many of the things you're asking here.
