    It sends a message to the phone in question that reads ...

    "PING!"

    Very similar to MSN messenger, a ping is like a nudge. Some people have set up their BB's so that an incoming message on bb messenger, plays only a tone. A ping is a way of (as cyberranger said) vibrating and getting someone's attention.
