Default Re: turn bbm off

On most other IM's you can block particular contacts, then unblock at will. On BBM, once you delete them off your list, you have to re-invite them...and in the meantime, if their PIN happened to change, you have to try via e-mail, which usually doesn't work -- it's not a seamless "ignore/block" like other IM's.

BTW, you CAN block specific PIN messages on your device - it's done through the firewall and it's easy. You can also block e-mails, texts MMS, etc...through the same technique. There are some downsides to using that technique, but if you do want to block a PIN msg from certain people, that's where it's done. You CAN'T however block BBM's through the firewall, at least not up until OS7.

Can we move on now? This thread is rapidly moving downhill...
