My wife has a BB for work and I just got a 7130c both on Cingular. She can PIN me and I can reply to her but I can't send her a PIN. Any ideas why or how I could research this? thanks joe

What happens when you send a PIN message? Does a red X show up? If so, open the message and under message status let us know what it says.

It says " Transaction error- timeout"

Do a hard reset on the BlackBerry by taking out the battery for 10 seconds and then putting it back in. It almost sounds like it went stupid for a while. After that I'd probably run it through an application load just to make sure it is not the BlackBerry.

Tried reset, did not work. What's an application load? thx, joe

Here are steps on how to do it:

Application Loader process (http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgecenterpublic/livelink.exe/fetch/2000/8021/7919/8125/How_To_-_Install_BlackBerry_device_software_using_Application_Loader_in_Desktop_Manager.html?nodeid=766556)

**When you get to Step 10, click on Advanced and then select "Erase all currently installed applications", click next, select "Do not automatically backup & restore", and then continue with Step 10.

Make sure you have the BlackBerry handheld software installed from Cingular's download page:

Handheld Code download page (https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=577BCC914F9E55D5E4E4F82F9F00E7D4)

Once you download the handheld code and install it, run through Application Loader following that KB article I posted. Lets see if that will work. Make sure you do a backup of the BlackBerry by opening up Desktop Manager, connecting your BlackBerry, double clicking on Backup & Restore, and then clicking on Backup. Click and save and let that finish.

Thanks for your help. I downloaded the new application file from Cingular, it is 49 MB but I cant seem to get it onto the BB. The app. loader wont load it, it seems to want a file ext .alx or .ali. If I select all files then I get an syntax error on line 1.

If I run the file it pulls up program maintenance and asks me to select Repair or Remove v.4.1.0. When I choose repair (afraid to try remove) it goes thru the wizard and shows succesful install of v.4.1.0

Any ideas? thx, joe

Is it possible that since my wife's BB is thru a company that there might be some sort of firewall protection where she can PIN me but I can't her? I don't know if it might be worth trying to PIN me if you don't go thru a company also? My pin is 2044E4DF.

I sent you a PIN message and you can try to reply to it. I'm with a company as well but I have no restrictions.

Well we know where the problem is. Her company is blocking PIN messaging by the looks of it.
