Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

So before doing a wipe...consider this...

 

The BB10 OS for the Playbook isn't here yet...

I noticed that when I call (from Z10)  to my wife's Playbook... there is a option on the playbook as follows...

Accept - Voice only - Decline...

 

That suggests to me...that BB is aware of the need to bring OS7 users now able to BBM Voice Chat 7 into the mold of BBM Friends using the Playbook..or so one would think...

 

Also I recall a video where TAT - The Astonishing Tribe were demonstrating the interconnectivity of multiple Playbooks working on a table - project...

That suggests to me that they think the Playbook will become a significant tool in the future...

I also believe the Playbook foreshawed the whole OS10 system as it certainly got my attention over the past year and has made the transition into the Z10 seamless...already knew how to operate it the moment I picked it up...

 

 

So do not rush out to venture where the TAT may have already gone...as they may be working on resolving issues we are encountering...I would not wipe a device clean for this access only...

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

I noticed on your pics you set up the PLAYBOOK as a contact...
the Playbook should be added to the EDIT function of an existing BBM contact as follows..
go to contacts...
find the playbooks owner (whoever registered their email with BB)
select
hit edit
add field
go to blackberry pin - insert the playbook pin
save

that should do it...saves it as a Playbook Video Chat under the existing contact - right below BBM and BBM Voice...

see if that works for you

I put the pin number under a bbm contact and used the same e-mail BBid
I found a way how to add the pin to a new friends but its not recognized as a new friend

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

you are on the right track...

I have one waiting pending also...

in the playbook I noticed I had placed both the Z10 pin and Video Chat Address

check that out as well...

In the Wife's playbook I have these fields filled out under my Z10 contact (using edit/add field):

Z10 Pin

Z10 Video Chat Address

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

Just to clarify:
In the Playbook under MY CONTACT (ergo the Z10)
I filled out the PIN (field) and the Video Chat (field) with the same Z10 PIN #
it will go green if the Z10 is on wifi...and recognizablw...

Re: VideoChat with Z10 and PlayBook

I am stumped...
I set mine up on Feb 10th shortly after getting my Z10 and it worked the first time right away...
the only thing I can think of (and I could be wrong on this)
Is that you created a contact called PLAYBOOK in your Z10...
that contact may be causing a communication conflict thru the BB firewall...
you might want to start over by deleting the contact named "PLAYBOOK"
and using the proper playbook owners BBID (email etc...)
