    BBM across carriers ?

    Does BBM work from one carrier to another? For example, I tried to invite a co-worker who has a BB on Cricket Wireless ( I know....why? ) and it just sits pending waiting for authorization.... I tried from his phone and from mine and it did not work either way. Is BBM carrier specific?

    No.. does he have an active data plan? his pin would have to be registered with the bis or bes but it is blackberry specific and thats it that I know of.

    Thanks J for your quick reply. He has internet access so I assume he has data... I will have to check to see if his service books and routing table are properly registered...

    you need to see if he only has mobile or wap as well. If he doesnt have his pin asso. with rim then i dont think BBM works.. anyone 100% confirm this for me?
