    It is possible, one of my contacts is receiving messages from me, messages that i never wrote.

    Most likely someone sent those messages from your phone without your knowledge...

    What makes you think that your phone has been hacked? I highly doubt its possible to hack into someone's Blackberry.

    Unfortunately it is possible, simply because anyone can choose any name on Messenger. I could choose astro1982 and I'd appear to be you. You haven't been hacked, and there's nothing you can do to prevent it happening. It does mean, however, that whoever is doing it knows your contacts, so it is likely a friend playing a prank.

    Did you read my post? I can't send a message with your pin, but I can send a message that appears to be from any username I choose. If you've been using astro1982, change it to 1982astro and don't tell anyone but your girlfriend. Then see what happens.

    If it's coming from your PIN then there is no way. That can't be hacked.

    If there was something that could hack a BlackBerry then it would be all over the interwebs.

    Send a PIN message from the Web
    Some of you may have seen this before, but I haven't, and I haven't seen it posted here on the forums.

    Apparently, you can go to this website and send someone a PIN message.

    This is true, but it shows up as the same specific PIN everytime

    The site you posted sends to a pin, but not from your pin. That's not the same thing. Anyone can send your girlfriend a pin message if they have her pin...

    Okay....just found that strange. I wouldn't be too concerned about someone hacking your phone or pin, it cannot be done.
