My family ran Drive-In movie theaters around the Puget Sound for about 50-60 years, and where there are Drive-Ins there are always Swap Meets, and I wore a pimp hat alot so I came up with the name ThaSwapMeetPimp when I was like 24. If you see that name somewhere, it's like a 99.9%chance that it's me (I have yet to find anyone else who has come up with it, but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened).

When you stated "criminal" I incorrectly assumed you meant something more serious in the form of theft or violence.
No worries here. You do you.
It's all good. You didn't rant on my post. That was someone else.
That was the first post I made in this thread. I'm not interested in this discussion really.
Being from NY I just liked your name.
Thanks for the history about it! If I'm ever in the area and see the name somewhere, I can say I know who that Pimp is. LoL.
Take care my friend! Peace....

I have done extensive research on this topic earlier last year when all the fuss about Middle East and India pressuring RIM was buzzing around. I don't want to dive into the boring details but this is the gist of what I have learned:
- BIS users can have their messages handed over by RIM if RIM is provided a warrant by a law enforcement agency.
- BES users would require cooperation from the BES owner to retrieve any information from a single user (with ease) or:
- Physical access to the phone opens up more windows for brute forcing the device. (Google "chip off blackberry" or "jtag blackberry" for more information).
- The majority of the methods used to retrieve information off of a BlackBerry can still pretty easily be prevented by simply using a very strong password along with enabling the encryption of the physical memory on the device through the Options menu on a BlackBerry.
There are many communities online that require you to verify your identity as a law enforcement agent in order for you to access their knowledge base. There are clearly ways of retrieving data from a BlackBerry...whether or not that data is usable once it is retrieved is another story. If the data is encrypted with a very strong password, it could take an unjustifiable amount of time to brute force it. The data could also be encrypted beneath RIM's technologies with a third party encryption.
So basically...if you're on a BES server it is a crap shoot that would require IT administrator cooperation or physical access to the device. If you're on BIS, your communications are safe from the average prying eye unless you have attracted the attention of law enforcement.

So you're saying J is a drug user and weed abuser? Maybe he/she needs to move to Washington State where those activities are legal within the state border unless federal law enforcement intercepts him/her on a highway.

Ok, late to this thread and don't know if this has been realized but if RIM goes with BBM money can't criminals use their BB to hide who they are with just their PIN and ask for money pretending to be someone's friend on BBM?

If RIM created a way to collect money with BBM that allowed you to just use NFC to tap and make anonymous payments in store, then they would become the worlds largest bank in a hurry.

Also, another method used by forensics agencies is to use the media card and brute force the password on that image since it is usually the same password on the device. This is a non invasive procedure and can be done without destroying the phone to retrieve the memory chip. So if you have something to hide (from anyone, these services are available to regular folks as well from many companies, not just for law enforcement) make sure you have a nice long password with symbols, numbers, capitals, etc.

And this is crackberry, so saying someone is a blackberry user and abuser is just crackberry lingo, they weren't saying anything about real drugs....
