Default Can't be added as a contact in BBM!

Please Login to Remove!

I've searched extensively on this, with no luck. A co-worker and myself were able to add each other as contacts with no problems in BBM. A 3rd co-worker tries to add me as a contact and BBM says it sent me a request to add me to his contacts.

I never receive the request. Instead, I get an EMAIL on my blackberry and laptop stating the following:

"(name) would like to add you to his or her BlackBerry Messenger Contact List.

If you don't currently have the required application on your device, please visit to learn more about this service.

Once you've installed BlackBerry Messenger, return to this message to accept this request."

On his phone, he has my email address and BB PIN number listed in my contact info. How come I don't get his "invite" to be added as a contact, and what do we have to do to correct this?

FYI - when I add him as a contact, he gets the message and accepts. His BBM tries to send me a message saying he accepted, but I obvioulsy don't get the message and he just sits in my BBM "pending".

AFAIK, there is no definitive "fix" for this yet

I'm still trying to fix my own
