Just to make sure, do you have a BlackBerry data plan? You need a BB data plan to use PIN/BlackBerry Messenger.

Once you have that, I recommend adding friends to BBM via their PIN, not their email address (PIN always works better for me).

You have to get it by calling your carrier and requesting they add the BlackBerry data plan to your line.....
