Re: Blackberry Messenger - Random adds from strangers? (spammed?)

Hi, 

 

I'm getting hundreds of messages coming through in arabic every few seconds and don't know how to stop it. They have just started randomly and I have not gven out any of my info at any point. Also, the messages are neither texts nor bbm's and I don't have my emails synced upto my phone either.

 

Can you help me get them stopped?

Re: Blackberry Messenger - Random adds from strangers? (spammed?)

hello newcastle1989,

it is quite easy in fact.

what type of message ?

1)
if the text is not in Black, then it is a mass BBm sent by one of your contacts.
==< close this 1on1 chat
==> check the contact's name, and in BBm's contacts, delete that contact.

2)
if the text is black, and there are many people (chat with several BBm users), then simply leave this multi-users chat.

It isn't a message on bbm though. It was in red but not from any of my contacts. it was like an email i would say, that was the format it was sent in

can you make sure of that ?

==> open BlackBerry Hub, open the filters on the left.

In which filters (other than "Hub") can you see that message ?

Re: Blackberry Messenger - Random adds from strangers? (spammed?)

I wonder if you can help me. I upgraded my BBM a few days ago and I am now receiving quite a lot of contact requests. Could you give me a solution please?
