Re: BBM help pleaseeeee!!!

Not sure if it'll help, but it's worth a shot.


1)  Delete your friend from your list and any pending requests.

2)  Make sure your friend does the same.

3)  Go to Options, Advanced, Service Books.

     Delete all references to anything that has [BBIM] in it.

Reboot the device, and go to Options, Advanced, Host Routing Table, Hit the BB Button, and choose Register Now.


4)  Go to your provider's site to Resend All Service Books


Try re-adding your friend now.

Re: BBM help pleaseeeee!!!

Well it seems to me that the problem is on your friends end. She may have inadvertently blocked you or she may have her status set to unavailable. Ask her to follow the steps in the previous post.
