    Hey All,
    I'm new to this forum and I'm seeing a ton of talk about what everyone's PIN is. I don't have a BB but I'm thinking of switching so have been spending some time here.
    What does the PIN do?

    Hi,
    It works in the same way that messenger would work. Basically every individual Blackberry has a unique PIN code. You can contact any other Blackberry user by using their PIN number. :-)

    Hi,
    Apologies if this comes throguh twice - having probs posting!!!

    Every Blackberry has it's own unique pin number. You can contact any blackberry user in a similar format to an IM program, just by knowing their PIN. The date is then sent using Blackberry servers. :-)

    What is a PIN, and where do I find mine?
    A PIN is an eight digit alpha-numeric sequence that is assigned to every BlackBerry device. You can find your PIN code by going to Options>Status>PIN. You can also find your PIN code by typing "mypin" into an email (no quotes). The BlackBerry will automatically insert your PIN code.

    your pin does less than you think:

    1. bb messenger, to talk to fellow bb users.
    2. sometimes when downloading applications that you have purchased it asks for your pin in case you accidentally delete it and want to reinstall - then you can prove that you purchased it.

    i think that's the extent of it, but then again, i'm still learning!

    When you go to add, you press scroll to "Use Once" and highlight it. Once highlighted, hit the menu key and select "Request by Pin"

    One of the best things about having a blackberry is that you learn something new almost every day!
