Blackberry Messenger

I have a Curve 8520 on Virgin Media, it comes with unlimited BBM. I try to add people but they can't see my request and on my BlackBerry it just says pending. And when they try to add me, I can't see there request. Please help!

 

Thanks

Re: Blackberry Messenger

Is it only BBM that is not working? Are push email, twitter and facebook working if you use them?

 

First step would be a battery pull - remove, wait 30 seconds and reinsert. 

 

If that doesnt cure it try forcing your handset to register on the network again - Options - Advanced Options - Host Routing Tables then press the Menu button and select Register Now. You should get a message in your generic inbox your handset is registed.

 

If the above does not work, give Virgin a call and ensure your Blackberry data has been activated on your account.

Re: Blackberry Messenger

Facbook works fine, I don't have mail because that comes unlimited with the tariff. I tryed the first step and there was no change. What's the generic inbox?

Re: Blackberry Messenger

Normally labeled Messages - if the handset registers fine then you should get a message in there like an email/sms telling you it has registered

Re: Blackberry Messenger

if your not getting a confirmation that your handset has been registered on the network it could be your not properly provisioned. Give Virgin a call and check they have activated a Blackberry Data Plan on your account

Re: Blackberry Messenger

Does unlimited bbm & mail count as a blackberry data plan?

Re: Blackberry Messenger

Virgin Mobile may call it something else, but yes - that should be a Blackberry Data Plan. It needs to be activated on your account to allow your phone access to the Blackberry Servers.
