Default Using BB messenger in Europe

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there.
This is a great forum. I just joined, after a brief search. Thanks a lot for creating this community.
Anyway, I will be spending a month in Europe, and will be taking my Pearl with me. I intend to roam internationally while there (which is allowed under my T-Mobile contract).
I wasn't even aware of the advantages of using BB messenger until a friend pointed out for me that I could use if for free wherever I am. This is, obviously, of great interest to me, and I want to learn more.
I've since put three friends with BBs in my contact list, and everything seems to be going OK. However, there's one contact I can't put in. I called T-Mobile customer support and they told me we need each other's PIN codes, but I was able to invite two other people without a PIN.
In short, I'd like to gather more useful info before I leave on my trip.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What other info are you looking for? It is best to add by PIN when using BBMessenger. Make sure the PIN is included for that contact in your address book. Then when adding to BBMessenger simply highlight the contact (don't click it) and hit the menu key and select "Add (PIN)"

Keep in mind while using BB Messenger while roaming you are paying data roaming rates with T-Mobile.
