If the user in question has PIN blocked in their firewall that would prevent it. Or unsolicited PIN messages. Try adding the PIN to their contact info and "compose PIN" to that contact. They should receive a message from you. Then they just need to add you to messenger.

Actually I have 11 PIN Request pending... So I think the problem comes from me...

I'm going to do it like you told by contact. It's going to be boring!!! Thank you very much!

OK it works, but why, like all my friends having a bb, i can't add directly a pin. They explain me to go in unique utilisation then press the menu touch then pin request something like that.

But I don't have PIN request in the menu, is it normal?

Go to BB Messenger folder then Hit Menu>add a contact>(Scroll up to "[use once]") hit menu>Request by PIN!

Good Luck!

You might also try pulling the battery as well.

Did you already add the PIN to your address book contact? If the PIN isn't in your address book, you won't get the Request (PIN) option for that contact.

Sure I have a plan, I can speak with the contacts that dd me.

Oups for the Son, I think So was better!

It works when I add a contact in the adress book with a PIN. But this: "Go to BB Messenger folder then Hit Menu>add a contact>(Scroll up to "[use once]") hit menu>Request by PIN!" doesn't work. There is no Request by PIN in the menu. Promise!
