In BBMessenger... Add a Contact, then:

Highlight the name, and if you have an email for that user, you can request by email. If you have the PIN entered for that user, Request by PIN.

If you only have the email or PIN for a new invitee, then scroll to the top of the menu to USE ONCE and click menu to Request by Email or Request by PIN.

Do this:

1. Open BlackBerry Messenger and press the BlackBerry Menu key, then select Add Contact.
2. When it takes you to the Address Book list scroll all the way to the top so that the [Use Once] option is highlighted.
3. Press the BlackBerry Menu key again and then select Request By PIN
4. Type in the PIN number
5. Press the BlackBerry Menu key again and then select Continue
