    When i try to restore my blackberry messenger contacts I get this message: Please try again later. you are currently being registered with the blackberry messenger service. this is an automatic process that will complete in a few minutes.

    It's been saying this since Saturday after I took my phone to the sprint store & they wiped my handheld

    I'm having the same issue. I'm guessing it's a server-side problem.

    That helps a lot because I kept deleting it and adding it again. so I guess I'll wait. I know my contacts are getting tired of adding me all over again.

    I had this same problem on Saturday, it was because my husband did something with backing up my device or restoring something or whatever he did, and it ended up with 2 versions of BBM. It didn't know which one to run. So the store deleted both, downloaded one, then I got that statement you mentioned. I then ended up just inviting the same people back (I only had 6). Eventually I got them all back and all is good. I'd hate to be one with 150 contacts and have to do that - ugh!

    Hope you all get the problem cleared!

    Oh and when the VZW guy saw that message on my BB he did a battery pull and it disappeared. That might be worth a shot!

    on my bbm 5.0 i've changed my profile picture, and i can see the change, but my old pic is still visable to all contacts, even though i've deleted it from my device. any ideas?

    Whatever you do, always save a backup on your media card every so often. You will never have this problem.

    Thanks for the thread Bella. Now I can sit back and wait for RIM to fix the issue. Personally I love the BBM. Other than the few issues.

    Thanks for the link! I had to wipe my Tour this evening, but couldn't understand why I wasn't able to restore my contacts OTA.

    note to self: Make backups more often!
