Thanks for commenting whsbuss.
Since posting this message, I have downloaded some of the BlackBerry simulators from thier website. I have downloaded two difference software versions. One, is the .117 revision that I have on my device. The simulator acts the same as my device - flawed. The second version I downloaded is a .214 revision (from europe?). That revision works as it should. it displays PIN: xxxxxxx after I type the PIN address in. The simulator test seems to backup the idea that the .117 code seems to have a flaw in it. Confermations? Comments? Thanks.
