    I'm trying to add a friend on BBM who lives outside of the US and it won't work. If I invite them and they accept it just says "Pending Authorization Waiting." If they invite me I never even receive the invitation. I added another person at work, who lives in the US, and it worked fine. Could someone help me with this? I'm using a blackberry 9930 on Verizon it that helps any.

    Thanks,

    Does your friend have a BlackBerry data plan (BIS)? Both parties need one in order to use BBM.

    Yeah they have BIS. They're a bbmaholic so it's weird that its not working...

    Has either one of you reached the bbm friend limit? I think it's 150.... just a shot in the dark

    Invitations by e-mail rarely work correctly. PIN invites always work. Are your trying by PIN or by E-mail?

    Huh? Where did that information (which is incorrect) come from? There's no limit although the device will slow down extremely when you get in the thousands.

    I did the invite by PIN and I also did a battery pull. Nothing is working... The sad part is I called up Verizon and they transferred me to RIM. Once I got to RIM they transferred me back to Verizon...lol.. I don't think anyone knows what's going on...
