Re: Blackberry Messenger For Curve 8500

Hello Isabel7 and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


Sorry to hear you are having difficulties adding friends to your BBM™ on your BlackBerry® Curve™ smartphone.


Did you recently change or remove your BlackBerry data plan? If so, you need a compatible data plan to use BBM and you will need to contact your mobile network carrier for plan options. 


When you send the invitation does it remain in a pending state or does it fail to complete the request?


Have a look at KB12319 "When adding a contact to BlackBerry Messenger the contact remains in pending status" for more information.


Hope this answers your question.
