Default 8830:BB Messenger - Password entry each time?

Please Login to Remove!

I am still new to this device. I am trying to get a friend to play ball with Messenger.

Each time I use the BB-Messenger icon I get a prompt box that says:

Password Entry

Kind of half hidden behind that prompt is a text screen:

"Please enter a password to be used only if your contact list is erased"

I don't know what this is referring to. (I did a quick search and read the Messenger 101 thread)

I also see a "current conversations" line at the top.

Thanks in advance

All first time user of BlackBerry Messenger have to create a password. I presume it's for contact list recovery but never tried it.

I have never used it, either. Honestly I just put a garbage password in there and then it goes away.
