Sometimes when using BlackBerry Messenger and receiving an invitation or “friend request” we accidentally block the person. The other is also true, sometimes you want to block a contact and ignore future invites. Either way, thanks to a recently updated knowledge base article from RIM, we now have an official guide on how to block and unblock contacts in BBM. If you need to do either, check out the guide below or go to blackberry.com/messenger for more info and to download BBM.

To block a contact in BlackBerry Messenger, complete the following steps:

  1. Open BlackBerry Messenger.
  2. Highlight the contact.
  3. Display the menu.
  4. Select Delete Contact.
  5. Select the ignore future invites from this user check box.
