    He is partially correct. You can use 2 pb's to video chat using the same bbid but it only works in certain situations. If you search for Video chat on the forums, you'll find it.

    Nope. You only purchase the application one-time per BlackBerry ID.

    The video chat application 'add contact' form clearly states BlackBerry ID (email address) or BlackBerry device PIN.

    Your right, but, I have two pb's both set to use the PIN yet when using Video Chat the BBID is transmitted not the PIN. This stop's me from using Video Chat between my PB's.

    There isn't a solution I'm afraid. I'm sure someone would have posted one by now if there was.

    With multiple PBs it boils down to a simple choice: either share Apps (use same BBID) or Video Chat (use different BBID).

    The "it works if you use PB PIN" suggestion comes up quite regularly on these forums. As does the "it works if the PBs are on different WiFi networks". However, neither "solution" works when actually tried. But, I can guaran-damn-tee that both "solutions" will be posted here again before many more days have passed.

    BTW, the confusingly worded RIM knowledgebase article doesn't mean what it apparently says. The only limit is on the number of PBs (five) you can associate with the same BBID and use with AppWorld. In our house we've been switching between our PBs for the last 18-months when getting the same Apps from AppWorld. We must have switched the "active" PB hundreds of times by now. The "5 switches" limit is the number of devices you can associate, not the number of times you can switch between those (up to 5) devices.

    Yes, it does say that doesn't it.

    Still doesn't work though... whichever one you use.

    And, to clarify that further, the App you've purchased on one PB will appear under the installed tab of that PB and the uninstalled tab of all the other PBs that share the BBID. Just hit the "reinstall" button on those other PBs.
