    So i just got my BB yesterday and have been playing like a fiend. I got my Yahoo account set up with my messenger. Here is my problem. No one i know has a BB so i am hunting down for anyone work related that might have one. How long did it take you to find some BB pales. Let me take this back, i know one person but dont know his pin so i dont know how to send him a request and he is out of town for the week.

    I have had my BB for 2 weeks now and still don't have any BB friends. My girlfriend and my sister have them, but that's it. Let me know if you have any luck making friends!!!!

    I'm going through the same thing, I know one person with a curve and that's it. I'm trying to convince everyone to join the movement but everyone complains about no touch screen!!

    PS--If you know your friends blackberry email address you can add them by that too so you won't need the pin...
    good luck to us all

    I was the exact opposite lol. My friends all had them and I was a sidekick user. Once I switched to the 7100, I found forums like this and added a **** of a lot more buddies to my messenger. Hit up the pin thread or even hit me up if you want to try it 24060678

    what I find sad is that the few people that I do know with BB's usually doesn't even know what a PIN means or how to really use their BB's ... most of them just treat it like a regular phone ... I'm trying to teach them all (including my own mother and boyfriend!)

    I too am teaching my girlfriend all the cool things that she can do with the phone. She wonders why I am constantly on it, and I have to remind her that my whole life is in the phone (numbers, address, etc...) Once she takes the time to figure everything out, she will probably never leave it alone either.
    right now she can't stop playing that brick breaker game. Nothing like having your girlfriend in bed at midnight playing!!! LOL

    OK.. I don't want to abuse anyone's pin but what does pinging do? Just send the word ping?
    And..what is peer-to-peer? (It shows in my messages but not in my in blackberry messenger)

    Wow, seems everyone is in a relationship with a loved one that just doesnt understand the addiction.

    Anyway, a PING! sends a vibration to the persons device and is like a "hit me up when you get a chance" kinda message.

    Peer-to-peer is just what you described lishan - a message sent to your device using the PIN number.

    Most of my friends have other smartphones, but I don't really miss anything. I still just use texting, instant messaging, or email. I'm still in instant/costant contact with all of them.

    Welcome to cb.com J$, I only knew 2people w/bb's before I joined cb.com. Now you know an entire community. To tell you the truth I don't even use Yahoo!msgr any more lol, I'm totally cracked out. Send out some bb msgr invites and I'm sure you'll get a slew of bb msgr buddies.
