Default Stranger's names on Blackberry Messenger?

Please Login to Remove!

So I finally got Blackberry Messenger working, made some invites, got some responses back just like all my other Blackberries. Since Ive gotten the 3 names back Now there are names in my Blackberry Messenger Contacts list that I don't know, 7 contacts overall. 4 of these names I have no idea who they are and never invited them

This is a brand new Curve that I just got last Wednesday from Verizon....does Blackberry recycle Pin numbers, why did these names just show up today?

A Little confused on this....thanks.

Did you post your pin or email anywhere? If you don't know who they are, simply delete them.

PINs are attached to each specific device, so no, your PIN being recycled seems unlikely. But, stranger things have happened.

I know I can easily delete, which I will, just curious WHY they are there I found out one was a new name, and I am guessing the other may be a changed PIN, I think another friend moved to a Curve and may had given his 8830 to a friend, relative or coworker, I hope thats the case.

If not, I will chalk it up to the New friend network in which I will also ask Blackberry how to get my name into Jessica Biel's Blackberry as part of that new program

Figured it out, a friend of mine gave his Blackberry to his employee. So when I sent the invite to my friends pin, he ended up getting it instead. All is right in Doug's Blackberry world
