Default Blackberry PIN - PIN encrypted?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if Blackberry PIN to PIN uses the same encryption as email?

I assume SMS / MMS have nothing as it's over the carrier network?

Thanks

BlackBerry PIN-to-PIN is not encrypted like email. It uses a public key system, unless you force Peer-to-Peer encryption on the BES. This locks users to sending Pin messages only to other users on the same BES.

I set PIN-to-PIN pee-to-peer key on 10 blackberry 8830 devices, but now I am having problems although devices are in the same group registered with same server but a couple of them always cannot send pin messags to others, it says NO MATCHING on screen even though i tried to remove key but still problems seems like pin messaging messed up!
Any idea guys how i can implement pin to pin public key in a proper way?
