cmon do you really think that RIM would have devices where the PIN's could get 'cloned' 'soo easily' as per the previous posts, and still pass all the government (FBI / whitehouse) security audits.

No way - BUT WHAT DOES HAPPEN IS that if a device is activated on the BIS service and then re-sold without being de-activated that when you as the unsupecting new user take the device to activate it and the server goes 'oops - sorry that device has been activated previously'...which leaves you with an issue, and possibly gives rise to suggestions of cloning..

given that RIM use the same back-end for BIS in most markets with just a different skin to support carrier x then that's quite likely.
