Default PIN validation

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,

I did look about for an answer but found nothing, so sorry if this gets asked here all the time.

Is there anyway of validating a pin number ..... anyway at all.
Maybe not validation as in, is the pin in use ... but some sort of syntax check.

Thanks alot,
-Ben

You're looking to see if the PIN specified for a recipient message is valid/active? ie you put in a PIN and you want to know if there is someone home at the other end?

I don't think there is without sending a message and waiting for delivery confirmation.

You aren't going to make a PIN spamming list based on confirmation returns you get are you?

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
Do you think there is a min number the PIN's start from? or is the only thing I can assume is a PIN number is greater than or equal to 8 digits long?
.... I was hoping that there might be a mod 10 check type thing or something.

As for the spamming thing .... "How dare you!" ;) .... I am not spamming or doing anything bogus..... I am doing a website for BlackBerry users and just want to validate when they enter the PIN number.

thanks again.

The spamming thing was actually kind of a joke... I know that at this point the PIN's all start with the same first 2 digits I believe... there is a set for each GSM, iDen & CDMA versions. Someone on here mentioned it not too long ago maybe a quick search for "pin iden gsm cdma" might find it. If you can't find it let me know and I will have a look.
