It's for messaging back and forth with other Blackberry users.

It uses PIN>PIN (PIN is a number that is unique to each individual BB) messages in a friendly IM type interface

And it's always on (your signed on) as long as your BlackBerry is on and your BlackBerry data plan is good.

BTW, welcome to BlackBerryForums!

It requires a Blackberry Data Plan and is charged per that plan.

I am a fairly new user of a blackberry pearl, my friend sent me a request on blackberry messenger but I never received it,m so then i tried to send her a request and she never received mine either. I'm not sure what the problem is right now her name is sitting in pending as is mine on her device. I have never used this feature before so I have no idea if I am doing something wrong or if its my phone. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

Also, make sure you add them by PIN number, not e-mail
