Default Quickest way to populate BBM with corporate contact list w/out bugging each user?

Please Login to Remove!

Gotta love disaster recovery testing! We have about 50 users...but none of them use BBM (empty contact list). Everyone is running an 8300 or better, so it's worth mentioning we have users running multiple versions of BBM.

The goal is to get everyone's BBM loaded up with a company contact list, if you will, of everyone else's BBM PIN/contact info.

What's the quickest/easiest way to do this? I'm open to any idea(s) that accomplishes this in the most convenient way for our users....pushing latest version of BBM, barcode scanning, etc....anything but manual input on each device!

It can't be done. Sorry.
BBM contact lists must be populated manually.

Well that blows! What if I were to create a "company" group on my phone with every contact, and then use the barcode feature? I could ask each user to stop by my desk, open BBM (upgrade the app if necessary), then scan the "company" barcode from my device....?

BBM5 has an option to send out barcode.
I have not played with it much yet.

But I did join a group after accepting a BBM invite.
Then you can add all the others from the group.

at least you can get all the PINs from BES to add them in.
Might be messy with PIN changes
