Re: Blackberry Messenger show - pending (waiting for authorization)

I have had the same issue with adding contacts via pin and email.  I have apps that require a weekly power reset.  Once I performed my full power reset my email and requests came in and I was able to authorize contacts and send requests.  Full power reset consists of turning off BB and removing battery for at least 10 seconds.  If it does not work try again and leave battery out for 10 minutes.  Good Luck

Re: Blackberry Messenger show - pending (waiting for authorization)

I have the same problem - I have a Blackberry Bold 9700.  I have tried numerous times to connect with my cousin in Canada and everytime I enter his pin and send it it comes back `Waiting for authorisation`.  He doesnt get the request and his end.  Vice Versa he has tried adding me and gets the same message.  I dont understand why its not working as Im able to connect with other blackberry users OK.

 

Can anyone help me with this as my mobile provider didnt give me any help what so ever.

For anyone still having this issue, send request via email to the other phone, PIN does not work 9300 to 9700

1) Register HRT: (OS5) Home Screen > Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table > Scroll to any line entry and > press the Menu key > and then click Register Now. If you have an OS 6 or OS 7 device, Look at Options > Device > Advanced > Host Routing Table, etc.

2) Resend Service Books: Article ID: KB02830 How to send the service books for a BlackBerry Internet Service account. http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB02830

3) Then, with the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot. A reboot in this manner is prescribed for most glitches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.
