Default PIN Duplication.....?

Please Login to Remove!

Two Questions:

1 - Can a PIN be duplicated?

2 - If so, what information can the hacker obtain and/or send/receive via said PIN?

Thanks

This is factual based on/from?

I'm really not doubting what you are saying -- just new here and want to ensure what I am being told is correct. And based off the quantity of your posts you are a guru....

Thanks

You can't duplicate the PIN; the cloned PIN will not be able to join the RIM network.

So, the answer (in my words) is you can't copy it SUCCESSFULLY.
