    Default Using BBM (PIN) on two phones

    I switch between two different Blackberry phones. Can I have the same BBI PIN on both phones?

    No, they are device specific

    If it matters, both phones will belong to one number and I would be switching between them, so only one will be active at a time. Does that change anything?

    No. As was stated, PINs are device specific.

    Changes nothing, refer to my previous post. You will need to log into the BIS site to change your PIN to get email, and run a restore (either in DM or BBM) if you want all the same BBM contacts.

    What makes you think it would matter. Do car manufactures allow you to change the VIN of your car because it has your license plate on it?

    There's no need to talk to him like he's stupid. He obviously doesn't know that much about BlackBerrys. I would suggest just adding people on both devices. This should work - though it may take awhile if there are loads of people on your list.

    This solution only works if you don't use both phones at the same time:

    I'm assuming you have BBM 5.0 here

    Back up your contact list into your email address in the phone you are currently using.

    Whenever you are not using one phone, turn off your data and then on the other retrieve your contact list with the same email address. You can do this as many times as you want/need. I do it all day every day and I never lose contacts.
