Having serious trouble with BBM.
A little background: started using BBM about a year ago with my 9800, worked great. I upgraded to a 9900 this past March, and loved it. Had many friends, had a lot of active chats.
My 9900 got damaged, wasn't warranty-eligible. Got a loaner 9800 and BBM continued to work fine for me.
In June, I bought a used 9900, returned the 9800 to my carrier, everything transferred over great. I tell all of this because, who knows, maybe the number of phones I've jumped around on in the past six months has a bearing.
I continued to use this used 9900 I bought through last week, but BBM started behaving strangely. My wife's messages to me wouldn't come through properly. She had to start texting me. I received these texts through BBM.
I tried inviting my wife back, but the invite stayed "stuck" on "waiting for authorization". Tried inviting other users, they can't reach me either. Oddly, I was still receiving status updates and group updates.
A couple of days ago, I took the plunge and tried repairing my original 9900. I was successful, and was able to get it going and re-register it with my BES Express server just fine. My BBM contacts all came over, too, but now I don't even get status updates.
The last straw was BBM Music, which now won't register properly. Please, someone help!!

Bumping in hopes that someone tries to help.
Another thing: If someone invites me, I receive the invitation. When I press "accept", the user who INVITED ME shows as "awaiting authorization".
