Default Why does my device display two pin's?

Please Login to Remove!

I used the diagnostic tool found here and it displays my pin as 540666651 but on the status menu under options it displays 2039eb1b, I sent a test message and it came back to me.



Anyone know why this is?

I would say the 203 number is your actual PIN. Is that the one you tested?

Yeah I have to agree I'd say 2039eb1b is your actual pin. Want me to send a test to that pin #? Can't comment on the tool you were using that displayed the other # considering i don't know what the tool is.

No I sent the test message to 540666651 and it came back to me but it said it came from 2039eb1b.

I am virtually 100% certain that 540666651 is not a valid pin.

One is decimal one is hexadecimal. Same number, just a different way of expressing it. Try this: Open calculator -> View -> Scientific -> Paste 540666651 in to the box -> Click Hex -> Viola! 2039EB1B

In case you were wondering this pin is 100000001110011110101100011011 in binary. Blech!
