    Default Z10 Pin Messaging?

    Crackberry.com took a survey a while back of people that do and or do not use pin messaging on their BlackBerry. Can anyone confirm if Pin messaging has made it to the Z10?

    Post Z10 Pin Messaging

    Please see the following thread from the BlackBerry Support Community Forums: Cannot find Compose PIN option on Z10 - BlackBerry Support Community Forums. Apparently, with a Z10 one can receive PIN messages but not compose them.

    I welcome the many improvements that BlackBerry has made. But I am not sure that I like the way that BlackBerry has evolved: no BIS, no synchronization of organizer data, and no PIN messages.

    hey, PIN messaging and other nice features of the BBM and our legacy OS that we were famous for and good at?....not in the Z10, but don't forget that we are reinventing the phone. And that means throwing away the good things users loved about our phones: RIM... o sorry, please called us just Blackberry..

    Way to go!

    Maybe someone can enlighten me. Why would anyone use PIN messaging instead of BBM? Is PIN messaging a carryover from before BBM? I never used it on my 9900 so never missed it on my Z10.

    If I have a BIS plan too? It is working? Or it is no way to send PIN messages from Z10?

    Default Z10 Pin Messaging

    I don't know how is in the BB10, but in the BB7 is more simple to compose and send a PIN than to open a chat in BBM. In BBM need to open a chat to 1 or more contacts, and after send it need to close the chat. It is too more things to do...

    Have anyone an information if PIN to PIN messaging will be include on the future update for Z10. If a group of person uses this, and one or two person want to change the device to Z10, it is a very little chance to change the whole group habit... I hope I get good news :-)

    I use my PIN to PIN for business & clients(Pin: is on my business card). BBM is for family and friends and people I like. Why would I want people that I do not like to see my personal stuff on my bbm?

    There is the one and only reason you need...

    Many of my friends that I made aware of BB's not having PIN 2 PIN are deciding not to go with the z-10 and sticking with their 9900 and me myself will more then likely head back unless they incorporate it back...

    PIN messages being receive-only on BlackBerry 10 is a known issue and this is currently the expected behavior.

    Pin messaging is a higher level of security, not stored on carrier servers, and doesn't deplete your text minutes. I am wondering if that is why (pressure from carriers) it is not included in z10.

    Pin messaging is the equivalent to a command line "NET SEND" command. BBM is the GUI form of Pin Messaging.
    Posted by my device of choice. Might be a BlackBerry, might not be. It is of no concern to you.
