    So this is not possible at all....cuz I see a lot of people here showing their pins and like, they make it seem like its okay...so your blackberry can't get hacked? I showed my PIN at BlackberryForums.com and some guy added me and he said I shouldn't share my PIN, and that I was gonna get hacked. So I deleted him and took my PIN off of my display.....

    Showing your PIN opens you up to a lot of spam, and I personally think in the near future people are going to start using them for other purposes.

    For example, you may be able to intercept email if you clone a PIN. I can't say for sure, but you never know.

    It's possible if you have Bluetooth enabled and are in 'Discovery' mode, this is better known as "Blue-jacking" a device and it does work. Just make sure discovery mode on Bluetooth is disabled...

    There is spyware yes, but it has to be installed by someone with direct access to the phone. So if you keep it passworded then don't sweat it.

    Ok let me make this quick..

    1. People cannot hack your BBM or read your messages just by you adding them. Its not possible. Its a dead topic so leave it alone

    2. Bluejacking only applied to files & contact information not emails and messages. There will be no discussions about it.

    3. Even if you were able to clone a pin which would have you take apart the backberry hardware and reformat the data structure of the chips you would only be able to receive pin msgs. Not the IM messages or emails.

    The End

    The Sequel: If you truly know how to "BlueJack" a device, you can pretty much take it over. I had a friend recently who was walking out of a theater and texting on her device, when a guy approached her and asked for her number. She declined and the guy asked if he could have her PIN, so he could add her to BBM. She again said no and the guy said, "I'll get it anyway" about five minutes later she received a request, she accepted and the message said: Look behind you, and it was him. Being in the business I'm in, we have several "Hackers" monitoring our systems, just waiting for someone to try to breach our security. They showed me first hand how easy it is to "Bluejack" a device, they can d@mn near access anything on it...

    Make sure your Bluetooth setting is not discoverable. That will avoid Bluejacking issues.
