Default PIN message to a Blackberry without data plan

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. This question might have been posted before, so I apologize if it was.
I have a Storm with a BB data plan, therefore my data goes through a BIS.
Can I send PIN messages to my son's Blackberry, who only has a GSM plan with his provider ? He can send text messages and make phone calls. Not sure about emails.
Thanks in advance.

It's not ideal but you could do it via the web. Web2Pin - Blackberry Pin Messaging Solutions

Probably better to just text...

OK, not worth the effort.
Thought he could just compose a PIN message from his BB, much the same as he would a text SMS message. But apparently not. Can you pls confirm ?

Without a BlackBerry Data Plan PIN messaging is not possible.

You have to have a data plan, however, it is virtually free to PIN once you do.
