    Blackberry Messenger - Unavailable

    Advertisement



    A friend has a Pearl, but when I go into contacts, the contact shows as Unavailable most of the time. Is there a setting that "times out" with inactivity on the Pearl? This is with Blackberry Messenger.

    No. It's a status message. Your friend may be busy.

    This has happened to me on and off as well. I've found that if you close BB Messenger, then reopen, it clears that up. Kind of a pain, but...

    This happens within a couple minutes, the the status is unavailable, yet i can send a message. Is this JiveTalk a better IM option? Is it free or pay? Thanks for the feedback.

    You have to pay for JiveTalk. They both do the same thing (allow you to chat without using your SMS allotment for the month, unless you have unlimited texts).

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~to me the bb messanger is not reliable as I'd like it to be. I stick with jive talk and text messages. Much more reliable specially on the go. Jive talk auto connects on its own when booted off bb messanger u have to go into it to boot I believe.

    You cannot be booted off BlackBerry Messenger. It relies on your device's connection, and since your BB is always on (unless you physically turn the device off or remove the battery and/or SIM card), it never logs you off.
