    It's been a while since I've been on here, I looked through threads but didn't see this topic.
    Last night I received the following message to my BB PIN. I have a Blackberry Bold 9900.
    I don't have BBM installed, it there any way to prevent messages like this?
    I would appreciate any tips.
    Thank you.

    I was able to block it through my firewall.
    Thank you

    you can use the firewall as you have since found - but remember you wont get *any* PIN messages, and anything sent to you will (I believe) appear as 'D'elivered to the sender, but you will never see it on the device, and there is no way to get a 'blocked' message back without the sender re-sending it to you with the firewall disabled.

    Thank you. I hadn't considered that, I don't want to block anything important. The message shows his PIN, If I remember correctly I can block just his PIN if I install BBM. I appreciate your help. Thanks again.

    No If you install BBM and ignore or block the PIN that will only stop them adding/bothering you via BBM.

    PIN messages are peer to peer. If you don't use them, and don't intend on then fine firewall it off and don't worry about it. If you do use PIN messages then you may want to firewall for a while if need be then switch it off and see what you get.

    TBH the odd PIN (spam or in error) don't bother me, its only when you start getting lots and lots it becomes a problem.

    Nothing 'official' is sent by PIN message so I wouldn't worry about that.
