I just recently got my new blackberry pearl 8220. I was told that I could use blackberry messenger to chat with my friends who aslo have blackberry's. But when I send my request for a contact, I type in the PIN and it sends it and it shows that my request is pending. My friends don't receve the request and when they send me a request I don't receive it, we all have the same problem. I live in Haiti I have a few friends who are able the use blackberry messenger, but most of us can't. I went to see my carrier Digicel in Haiti, they told me that it was a problem with all the new blackberry's. Can you confirm this afirmation? If it is not true can you tell me how can I make it work?
