    help adding contacts with messenger

    Advertisement



    I can not add my friend using his pin. It worked when I did it by using email but when I requested using his pin it failed me. If anyone here uses the pearl and can help me in submitting contact requests using pin I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

    I have a feeling you were putting his pin into the email request area. even if you don't give a @ address, it will not stop you.

    here are the steps if you wish to pin:

    (or you can choose from the address book if you've made up a card for the person)

    yea it's a bit tricky though...just highlight the [use once] and do NOT select it. First hit the menu button. select "request by PIN". then insert PIN.

    took me forever to figure this one out. is there a way to may PIN the default instead of email?

    not that I have found out.

    honestly, I'll confess. I just found out about the PIN option [use once] two weeks ago. I have been making (then deleting) vcards for people or just sending it to their email addresses since I first started using bbpin.

    I was too proud to ask what others did. *lowers my head* :cry:

    -edit-

    in my defense, I only started using bbm a month ago with some of the PYTs of the stack. shoutout to my girls Stacey and Cherri. daddy digs his arm candy. WATAA!

    I am sorry that I did not show my appreciation sooner. To be honest I was at the bar getting my buddy squared away with his new pearl. We were messing with the messenger and could not add each other and I was getting frustrated. We were drinking and having a good time when I remembered pinstack.com and its very helpful community. So I made the post and forgot about it until today lol. I had one too many that night..

    This was extremely helpful because I kept hitting use once and only getting an email option. Everyone says to click wheel and request by pin and I could not find this option. I finally found it after reading reddog's post. I am extremely greatful for the help. Thanks!

    Glad you got it Duy. Can't think of a better place to work on the Pearl than the local watering hole!
