    They set their status to busy. You can change status like an instant messenger....

    Actually that is the only possibility for busy. It means they changed thier status just like you can with im clients. If they weren't available due to other issues with their device it actually comes up with "Not Available".

    It also reports busy if they don't look at the message for after 30 seconds to a minute, not sure as I havn't fully timed it. Even with a changed status they recieve the message unless their data is off, or the phone its self

    Most people will change their status to busy so that they not be interupted. In most cases I have found that if they are idle they just leave their status as available. I'm sure that people do things differently, but thats my experience.

    The choices for manual setting of status is Available or Unavailable. The automatic settings or Unreachable and Busy. Unreachable is when the message is sent to the network, but isn't received by the recipient's BB. Busy is when it is Sent and delivered, but not read within a set period of time. There may be other reasons that a contact is automatically marked as Busy, but I'm not sure what they would be.
