    Really? must be a lengthy message cause the contact has had a talk bubble for several hours. does this also mean they have a conversation waiting for them?

    Remember BB messenger doesn't go out and check for the status if your contacts. And sometimes their status is not really sent to you. It usually means that it just didn't get updated. Nothing about a waiting conversation that I know about.

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Availability Icons

    Thanks for the post about telling the diffrence in status icons, but what causes the phone to show these diffrent modes, the only one I know the cause of is the unavailable, because its manully done by the user, however when the status is busy does that mean the someone is on the phone? and unreachable, does that mean the phone is off? if i ping someone will it take it out of that mode?

    thanks , and FYI

    And by the way, a friend was in Cancun Mexico and I was in Miami and we
    could chat with BB mess in real time , but she had no phone service, I
    have Nextel and she is Verizon

    What do you mean they don't show up in the group. Do you mean that the group always shows (0/3) or where the first number is always 3 less than the second? Is so you will always have those three in your unavailable. It's probably someone who has changed device and therefore PINs

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Availability Icons

    well i assume its the same...but my situation is that it shows 1/3 all the time

    from what you said...i'm guessing that if they don't show....they are unavailable?

    i was confused because i thought 'unavailable' was some sort of icon involving the darker smiley face and a red mark...

    is there any way to delete these "unavailable" contacts?

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Availability Icons

    Okay, what if it looks like a speaker next to the smiley? Does that mean the other person is on the phone??

    It says the contact is unreachable. What happens when it says that. I was having a conversation all night with someone and all the sudden no messages could be sent. That is a little weird.

    In the newer versions of BBM, there is a group that shows up at the bottom of you contact list, "Unavailable" any contact that is unavailable, is temporarily moved to that group. If you scroll all the way to the bottom you should see it.

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Availability Icons

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I don't have any "unavailable" section, but those othe two contacts still aren't showing up! You mentioned that they might be people who changed devices...is that the best explanation? If so, how can I delete them? Thanks for your help rcbjr!

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Availability Icons

    Lol, I've been wondering some of these things for quite a while now and most of my BBM questions are cleared up now.

    I thought the "R" and "D" meant received and delivered, so I'll give myself a pat on the back for that one.
