Default Can't add contacts to bb messinger

Please Login to Remove!

I've just upgraded to the 8800 from my trusty old 7230. When I try setting up contacts in BB messenger, I can send out "add contact" invites, they receive it and accept, however I never receive their replies.

My company uses a microsoft exchange server, and what's really wierd is that I recieve their acceptance responses as emails in my exchange mail on my work computer that are titled: <$RemoveOnDelivery,SuppressSaveInSentItems> BLACKBERRYMESSENGERINVITESTAGE2
...but even those email messages don't show up on my bb. I'm getting all other emails just fine but I'm also becoming suspicious that I might not be recieving sms messages since I haven't received any since upgrading (3-days).

Also, if someone else initiates an "add contact" request to me on their bb's, I never receive it.

Any ideas?
Thanks,

You need to input the persons PIN # in your addressbook then send an invite.

You know what, I noticed that I had the same exact problem when I used my pearl. However, the way I troubleshot this was to send a reqiest through email, rather than through pin. Hope this works for you, it is really a pain, hopefully that bug will be eliminated in the next os.

It has worked on Cingular for awhile, they just don't officially support it. But I have several friends on Cingular who use it with no problems.

I know at least 4 people (plus me) who have been using BB Messenger on Cingular since I got my BB last July.
