    if you are refering to BB messanger, then it means they are "busy", maybe on the phone or something and your message will be delayed in getting delivered

    highlight the buddy and hit the menu key, choose contact info and it will tell you they are busy

    The busy is set by the system, I assume it is set when the messages is delivered but not read within a certain time. You can't set the busy indication, but setting the unavailable condition means the same thing basically. Just one is manual and one is set by the system

    Unavailable is busy and you can set a custom message right underneath where you select available or unavailable (for example Unavailable and the Custom Message says Working). When your on the phone it automatically puts you as busy until your done.

    Content Protection is when you have security on your phone enabled (Options>Security Options>General Settings) with content protection on.

    so that contet protection comes up when the person isn't using their phone and it locks? because almost everyone on my list has that next to their name.

    No it means they have the security option content protection enabled. Its sort of like a firewall I would say. Not that their not using the phone and its locked. It just shows that the option is enabled, nothing to do with their status or anything. Its basically extra safety precaution on the phone thats doesnt really affect BB messenger.

    Its really nothing. It doesn't affect your BB messenger chats or anything. Just a message to let you know they have it enabled, for no known reason. lol.

    Np. Yeah its a little weird but its the same as having a custom message there, which some people add. So you get use to it.
