Blackberry Messenger

I have received a blackberry messenger request but I don't know who it's from. Is there anyway I can find out who it's from before I accept or refuse request?

Re: Blackberry Messenger

If it just shows a pin there is no way to know. Who have you given your pin to? If you accept you can always delete if you don't want that person.

Re: Blackberry Messenger

should you accept the invitation, the other person will have the following information:

  • the PIN is a valid one, and is used
  • your BBm name + icon + status
  • (if applicatible) your timezone

A BBm contact cannot harm your device.
