Blackberry Messenger show - pending (waiting for authorization)

I have tried to add a contact on bb messenger with the bar code and also the PIN.  It has shown pending - waiting for authorization for days.  i have checked the i am listening to box.  Any help would be appreciated.  It does this for any contacted that i try to add.

Re: Blackberry Messenger show - pending (waiting for authorization)

Has the person whom you are trying to add to your blackberry messenger accepted your add request? For me, it does not officially add the person until they approve my friend/add request.

Re: Blackberry Messenger show - pending (waiting for authorization)

i have actually set down with both phones and done it myself. i would send one from his phone to my phone and it would not work. i also sent one from my phone to his phone and that also would not work. i deleted messenger and reinstalled it, i entered it by pin and also tried it by bar code. just dont understand why it will not authorize.

Re: Blackberry Messenger show - pending (waiting for authorization)

usually when i add non-blackberry contacts to my BBM, it adds it instantly. 

 

So you're saying that when you send a BBM friend/add request to your friend's blackberry, it does NOT go thru or show on your friend's phone?

 

I would suggest double checking your settings inside the BBM?

Sorry, you cannot have "non-blackberry contacts" on BlackBerry Messenger. All BlackBerry Messenger contacts must have a BlackBerry.

 

To the problem at hand, do this:

 

Test sending from one device to the other a PIN message.

Open your Messages folder > Menu key > Compose PIN.

You must know the PIN of the other device. Send a test.

 

Is it received?

Can you reply back and receive it on the original device?

Re: Blackberry Messenger show - pending (waiting for authorization)

Under "Invite Contacts", third option "Enter an SMS contact's name or phone number"

 

bbm version 5.0.0.57

That adds an SMS contact.

 

But I see what you mean...ok.

 

In this case the OP is definately adding a BlackBerry contact by PIN.
