    Blackberry Messenger on 8300 ATT

    Advertisement



    Has anyone had this issue:

    I see the BB Messenger icon on my phone desktop. I can open it up, change my contact info. When I go to add someone it won't let me. I've been trying to add KNOWN BB users of new devices. I have an 8300 with AT&T service. I have a data plan. I tried to add myself and got PENDING. I went to download the app from BB site and it said that my device wasn't supported!! WTF!!

    open bbm
    click menu
    choose add contact
    --when address book opens--
    scroll to top and choose [use once]
    THEN
    choose menu
    choose request by PIN

    that should work

    How come it doesn't work by just adding a contact? I didn't have this problem until I switched to the 8300

    I don't know why it doesn't work by just adding a contact. I used to be able to do it, but after a while, I ended up having to do it the way Cherri said.

    Adding a contact by pin usually works for me as well.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Hrmmmm I added it the way it was described above and it seems to work (my Pending list got a lot smaller) so I either got accepted or rejected.

    I think some peple were sending me PIN messages cause I heard a sound go off, but I don't see any messages in my Inbox?

    Did I do something wrong? Why aren't PIN messages appearing?


    EDIT: It makes a sound when I add people to my friends list, so no messages. Under 'Contacts' in Messenger, It only shows 8/12? How can I see the rest of the list?

    Sometimes, although you have added someone and/or someone has accepted your request on bbm, it shows that they have been added to your list, but they really haven't. That could be one of the reasons. Another reason you may see the 8/12 is because someone has deleted you and/or you have deleted them, probably by accident. When I deleted someone, it showed 9/10 for the longest time. Then, after many battery pulls, it finally reset itself and showed 9/9. I hope this answers your question. I don't know why it does that, but it just does.

    That helped, thank you!
