| | Re: BBM/PIN...help!
1) BBM is short for BlackBerry Messenger which is a chat type interface unique to BlackBerry's
2)PIN is a unique hexidecimal number that is hardcoded into each BB
The PIN is used to operate BBM though I think email can be used but not recommended (I've never had much succes with it)
So in order for you to be able to BBM you friend you need to add him via pin#. You can set up BBM with a unique name or you own actual name. When the receive request via BBM it will say something like "Ezrunner has requested to be added to your BBM" do you accept. You have option of yes or no
So he doesn't have to know it is you and of course you can always delete said contact at any time
