    Hello....hope somebody can help.
    Phone was purchased brand new 2 months ago and I have only 2 bbm contacts. However since Sunday evening I have been inundated wit arabic messenger requests. I googled the problem and followed the advice to go to
    options >security>firewall> then enabling to block PIN. with the exeption of contacts.
    But it hasnt worked...any ideas or help gretly appreciated.

    I usually just delete the invite request and also check the box that says "ignore future invites".

    Possibly a recycled PIN or one of your friends has posted your PIN somewhere, have you tried Googling your PIN ?

    I have tried googling yes...nothing.
    Only got my daughters on messenger . hopefully they wouldnt do that lol. Unless somebodies pin is 1 digit different to mine maybe.
    Puzzled why i cant get firewall to block them though?

    There is a slight chance. My sister's pin just differs from mine by 3 numbers on its last character. The other 7 characters are the same.

    Could be an old PIN thats been re-issued - happens all the time - unless the phone was a refurbished unit.

    Are these all different people ? Or the same person(s) constantly re-adding ?

    The Firewall blocks PIN messages. It doesn't have anything to do with BBM.

    To Dm...all different as far as I can tell...the writing is Arabic with lots of hearts, smilies etc amongst it.
    The requests do seem to have quietened down slowly.

    I'm having the exact same requests! It just started today. All the writing is in Arabic and there are bunch of symbols in the name.

    I'm using the Ignore button, but I don't see an option to "Ignore future invites".

    I too have had the same thing, one question I have was did anyone set up forsquare or any other apps and not untick all the boxes as the foursquare set up releases your pin publically...was having 100 - 200 invites a day all in arabic too, I chatted with one guy who said there are whole bunches of lists published that they use to contact random people.....!

    yes, ignore future invites would be great if there were some sort of filtering system, only accept invites from your contacts list would be cool!
