Some terminology explained here: BlackBerry Glossary - BlackBerryFAQ.com

Your buddy will need to "accept" your invite first, before you can communicate via BBM with him.

You can send him a PIN message via the Message folder, if you like.

pretty sure all PIN messages show up red in the Messages folder (depending on theme). Doesnt mean anything. The checkmark should have a little "D" in it if it was delivered. "R" means read. "X" means failed to send.

Not all PIN are red.. only those set as Level 1 Messages.

You define your Level 1 Messages at your BIS setup site.
