    blackberry messenger is freaking me out man!!!

    Advertisement



    this is gonna sound confusing to sum (if not all) but here goes.....

    -im gonna try to make this as easy as possible

    lets say i only have 3 friends on my BBM

    - friend A, friend B and friend C

    one day i get a message from friend A. it comes up as friend A on BBM...so we begin to talk, but it turns out its friend C

    i never changed any settings or changed a name or pin or anything

    so friend C's display name is currently coming up as friend A. meanwhile, when i try to contact friend A, i get no response.

    i then text friend A who says they have not received a message from me all day. friend A also mentions that im coming up as if im on a call (on call icon) on BBM when i clearly wasnt

    so friend C tells me that they have recently changed their PIN. but i never got a new pin request from them or anything..

    i BBM friend C, under the name friend C is supposed to be under and i get no response, it goes to the on call icon almost instantly.

    so friend C was deleted and re-requested and now friend C is coming up as friend C.

    then i deleted friend A and re-requested and now friend A comes up as friend A.

    so as of now, everythins is back to normal....but you can imagine the confusion this brought

    this problem has happen b4...where 2 pins are sharing the same name...but i let it go n didnt think nuthing of it

    now it happened again n i wanna know why..

    why did that happen? wuts wrong with BBM?
    has anyone else experienced this?
    wuts your opinion on this matter?


    anything anyone could add to this thread would be helpful...

    thanx in advanced


    if you need more info...let me know


    (PS: friend B gets no love!lol)

    Sounds to me like just a weird quirk in your BBM install. If it doesn't correct itself you might just simply try to uninstall it and then reload it from the app loader. I know that would make me crazy. What if you said something to friend A that you never wanted friend C read...lol

    Actually you might just delete the BBM service books first and resend see if that does it. Sorry didn't think to add that first

    Another possible scenario is that maybe you inadvertently got yourself in a group chat or something.

    I've noticed something interesting when I'm chatting with someone.

    You know how you can see if the person you're talking with is typing a message in reply? I've also noticed that when I'm in a conversation with one person, I can see that another person is also typing a message and they're not typing it to me. Does that make sense? Weird.

    I have had a similar situation. Except when I attempted to delete and re add it wouldn't let me. I couldn't delete but accept once again. But I have had several issues with my Pearl and ATT can't even fix it, so I assumed it was my phone.
