    Pending (waiting for authorization) and undelivered messages

    Hi,
    I live in Australia and keep having major problems with BBM. A few days ago, I decided to rest my bb to factory default to solve the issue and well, since then, it's been problems after problems.

    I've been trying to add my friends again. They can add me but on my side, it says PENDING (waiting for authorization).

    I've added a guy from Australia today (since all my contacts are overseas) and it works fine...don't know if it's luck or just that my BBM works with Australia only.

    I have a data plan for BB.

    I just talked to my sister (in france)...she is the only one i've been able to add on my contact list. She can receive my messages but all the messages she sends stay undelivered.

    I have installed the last BBM version, I have resend the service books.

    I really don't understand what is happening ?!?

    Can someone help ?
    What can i do ?

    YEP, several times...i've tried 4.7 and well, the last one, .57

    Could it be a set-up of permissions problem ?

    I just even tried adding myself on BBM (inviting my own PIN). I received a request in 2 sec, accepted it and got myself as a contact 2 sec later.

    All the messages i send are received properly (well, by myself !).

    What the hell is happening ?

    I think you and your friends need to start clean. Make sure you have no contacts added. Remove any that you have added. Then make sure your friend have deleted you as a contact. After that, try adding.

    Done as well. :-s !
    What I've tried so far...
    - Reinstall fresh bb software
    - delete all contacts and ask my contacts to delete me.
    - start adding people using 4.7 (didn't work so back to delete pending requests)
    - install version .57
    - add people again
    - checked if firewall is on.

    Only managed to add people in australia without any trouble. All overseas aren't working.

    Call your carrier and ask them to transfer you to a BlackBerry tech... Something fishy is going on if none of those worked.

    Have either one of you checked our permissions for both the core applications and system software? If the are not both set to allow, change so all fields are set to allow, then then recheck your bbm permissions and make sure they are all set to allow as well.

    You should make sure they delete you too. I've had problems with that before. I've also had double contacts. But make sure you both delete eachother before one tries to add. I hope that helps you out.

    Thank you both for input. However, I still can not get it to work. Maybe there is some sort of issue with the networks in some European countries and a US phone.
