Default What is the limit of contact

Please Login to Remove!

Any one has the information that how many contact can be added to new BBM
I have 9780

I heard that it can be 1000 contact and one of my friend told me the new BBM is more than that Maybe aroun 5000 contact.


Thanks

I think the only limit is the memory of the device. I have not heard of a hard number that cannot be exceeded for number of contacts.

I did a search and landed on some blogs that talk about a numerical limit, along the lines of the limits mentioned in OP. Just scanning, I couldn't tell if the limit has increased with newer versions or been removed. I looked for a little while for a KB article but didn't find one.

Mine went buggy around 1800, kept rebooting and taking a good twenty minutes to boot up.


That was on my 9780. Anywhere around 1300-1500 is good.

This is a quote from Kevin Michaluk on crackberry.com when he did a "stress test" with BBM:

Quote:
Yup, there's a limit! Though I still can't say what the exact "max #" of contacts is. This message finally popped up when I hit 8007 open Requests, 1388 actual approved Contacts, 616 Pending contacts, and 317 active Chats (see screencap below) and then tried to approve another request.
He goes on to say that the limit of approved contacts without any pending requests should reach about 2000. The full article is here: BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 Stress Test Update | CrackBerry.com

Not group members. Which I know. The number of open groups on your device at any given time.
