    Thumbs up Sprint 8830 and Blackberry Messenger

    Advertisement



    Hello All!
    I am new to the blackberry. First off i love this thing and never thought i would. I am having some troubles with BB messenger though. i cannot get any of my friends on it. No one them receive invitations or whatever that i send them. one of my firends said it showed up in his email. What am i doing wrong? I add the contact with their email in BB messenger and nothing happens but a bunch of pending friends. I added my self and can chat with my self but that is very boring...obviously. Any help would be appreciated. Also if anyone knows of any really cool apps besides opera mini let me know.
    Thanks!

    Have you tried adding them by pin? Highlight "use once" and hit the menu key, then choose request by pin. Also let them try to add you first.

    I have no idea what that pin stuff is. i have had them try to send me requests and i dont get them. is this something wrong with the service provided or the handset?

    you have to get ur contacts pin number and edit their info under the PIN# add their pin then u can go back to the messenger and it add contact then it will go to ur phone book find the person u want to add and select them then just hit okay and it will be a pending request until they accept it.

    If their desktop email uses POP3 and deletes the request from the POP server prior to it reaching the Blackberry, he'll never get the invite on the phone. Try the PIN method that CP mentioned above.
