I can not add the pin for my friend into my contact's list...All it is asking for is an email address, i dont have a email address I have only the PIN. Anyone knows what to do? This is the first time I've went to this program...Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums!

Can you walk thru the steps you are using? When I add someone who is in my address book I do this:

1 - Click menu key and click Add a Contact
2 - Find the person I want to add from my Address Book and hightlight that person
3 - Click menu key and click Request (PIN) <contact name>

Do those steps work for you?

Yes, add them to your Address Book and put their PIN in the PIN field. Will work like a charm after that.

I've tired that and when i click menu there is no Request PIN?!

I know this person has a BB too.

Ignore this post. I figured it out.
