    In GameCenter I click 'Requests' and then press the '+' icon in the top right to bring up the friend request screen.

    I then type the username I want to add and press send, the username will go into a bubble of sorts while it processes, but then it says:

    Unable to send friend request
    Please verify the name and try again.​

    The name is definitely right, and this is happening very often for me right now. Maybe 9 times out of 10 it won't work, but occasionally it will... any ideas please?

    I have this problem ALL THE TIME. What the hell is going on? I know these names are correct but they jut can't be found by GC on my iPhone. It's driving me NUTS.

    In the end I had to logout, log back in again and it prompted me to do the signup process again? I did that, had to use a different name this time (ahhhh! annoying) and now I can add people no problem :)
