You have to have there pin # in there contacts section. Then in your BB mes. hit the blackberry button and go to add contact and it will send a request. It wont do anything if you dont have there pin in there contact info.

Re: BB Messenger

Actually, you can send a BBMessenger request to a BB users email address, my experience is that it sometimes is not as good as knowing their PIN upfront. I added a friend today via their email in my address book contact for that person.

 

But if you know the PIN, either add the PIN there under ADD CONTACT, or if on OS 4.2 or lower, ADD CONTACT and scroll up to USE ONCE and enter the PIN.

Re: BB Messenger

No, it places an invite in their BBMessenger to accept or not.
