I send someone a BB Messenger invitation from by AT&T Bold. I go to Add Contact then put in their email address <name>@<hidden> Simple enough, done it many times.

Two seconds later I get an invitation request from - myself. That's odd. I accept it, start a conversation and sure enough, it is a conversation with my handset. Gives a whole new meaning to talking to myself.

I delete it, try it again and same thing. Any ideas?

All this strange behavior started when I gave away my 8820 to a friend. He wiped it, installed his sim and started getting my email even though the BIS acocunt had the correct PIN for my Bold.

Other than asking AT&T to release my BIS account so I can recreate it, doesn't anyone have a suggestion?

Have you added someone via PIN.

I've added others via pin and email address prior to the BIS screw up I mentioned. I've sent a couple of BBM messages this morning, they show delivered but I haven't received a response yet.

Try sending the person a PIN message, like email.

I'll try and get in touch with them today and let you know how that works. I don't have their PIN and we're both on BIS so I can't look it up.
