BBM wont let me add contacts or accept invites

[ Edited ]

hi all, I think this is a common problem but hopefully someone can answer it for me - the posts i have seen dont say whether the problem has been solved or not.


i have a curve 9320


I had a faulty handset so my phone provider has given me a new one.  I did a backup with blackberry desktop manager and it said it could not back up bbm.  I made a note of my pins and carried on with the exchange.


I set up my new handset today and sent invites using the pins I had written down.  all say they are pending.  One contact has also sent me an invite but this has not been received by me.


I have deleted pending requests and sent new ones but this has not worked.

I have checked and my roaming data is enabled.

I have BBM as part of my contract plan

I have downloaded the most recent application updates direct from blackberry desktop manager


does anyone have any ideas how i can fix this?
