Cannot recieve PIN's or BB messengers from outside Europe...

I have been fighting to get this to work for 3 weeks now, I have recently moved to greece from Australia where I brought my BB. The BB was bought outright in th US and have been on a plan in Australia for a year with no problems, before now coming to Greece and been put on a Vodafone BB data plan. everything works perfectly; emails, internet, phone, sms etc. except the BIG problem with my BB meseenger: I can write my friends in Europe with no problem - instant. but when it comes to my friends in Australia I can only send them stuff still instant but I never get their reply. When I write them their name turns to italic and satus says "busy" which I know they aren't. Any help here guys?? - would really apreciate any form of help.


I have already tried:

- Wipe handheld, instal newest software both desktop and device and registered with BB

Re: Cannot recieve PIN's or BB messengers from outside Europe...

can you delete your messenger contact and then re-add them using their PIN? and test

Re: Cannot recieve PIN's or BB messengers from outside Europe...

I have tried that as well, didn't change anything. I'm trying to reach 10 different people in Australia - all with different BB models and networks. So its not a specific person - its everyone...
