Default BBM via laptop

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to connect my BB to my laptop and run BBM using my laptop? After more than 1 hour of typing on that small keyboard, I kinda get tired and prefer using my full-sized QWERTY but I have no idea if I can run the BBM.

I know it is a PIN based thing, and PINs are BB-bound, that is why, while keeping the phone branched, using the BB PIN to send messages to others using the BBM? Sounds confusing, but I hope I am making sense...

Can it be done?

Have you thought about buying a Blutooth Keyboard, that way you will be able to use it on the go and it's a lot cheaper than $100 and can even be used to type messages, work in Docs To Go?

Is there any way to manage everything in BB (such as emails/BBM/SMS/etc.) by using keyboard from our laptop.
My intention is that I have lots of lots of email and BBM, such sometime I am too tired of keep on typing on my BB keyboard such it's just feels too small when you get like 100 emails a day to reply.

So, if I can manage everything on my blackberry using my laptop(perhaps I can see my BB's screen) on my laptop and manage it accordingly i.e. chat BBM by typing using my laptop's keyboard, or reply emails in my BB by typing from my laptop's keyboard. This will help my life to become alot easier.

Thank you.

What you want/are looking for exists, just not for public consumption. Maybe one day.
