BlackBerry Messenger Chat Groups Questions

So, I started my own chat group on BlackBerry Messenger and I wondering if the name I selected is unique or if anyone can use that name.

Something tells me that the name is not unique at all, because I was able to create a group that I know already exists. Is that correct?

Also, what happens to my group when I eventually end up getting a new phone with a new PIN? What happens to my group? Does it get deleted and I have to start all over again with getting users? I can't just join the original group with my administrator password?

Re: BlackBerry Messenger Chat Groups Questions

The group name is for the group of PINs with it. SO many people can use the same name with out getting into those groups.

 

When you get a new phone, backup your BBM settings for teh new one or ask someone in that group to add you back in.

Re: BlackBerry Messenger Chat Groups Questions

Thanks.

 

If I back-up the files to my phone, how can I access them on a new phone?

 

Is there any way to get a unique group name?

 

Do I have to add the group members to my list of BBM contacts?

 

Can't I just log back in with the new phone?

 

I want to make a group that will last and I wanna make sure that it can last and last, for a long time.

Back it up to a memory card

Restore from memory card.

 

Unique name? how about some random text or DankeesBBChat should be unique enough.

 

Last for a long time?

Are we talking about chat?

Re: BlackBerry Messenger Chat Groups Questions

Yes, I wanted to post the barcode to my web-site and have an ongoing chat - I just didn't want it to go away, any time soon.

 

So, if I back it up to the Media Card, I can just add myself back in, with that card?
