AKAIK the PIN is transmitted together with the device info in the HTTP header (user agent)

The PIN is not in the user agent field.

Only the device model and OS level, along with the CDLC version level.

I'm quite sure I've seen them somewhere in the request before, but I think only if using the MDS/BES.

From DB-00435:
Quote:
Each BlackBerry Browser user can also be uniquely identified. A BlackBerry® Mobile Data Service administrator can configure a BlackBerry Mobile Data Service server to send a BlackBerry smartphone userxxx8217;s email address and personal identification number (PIN) with each Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) request from a BlackBerry Browser. The BlackBerry Mobile Data Service can also be configured to send this information to a certain domain, such as a corporate intranet. If configured, the email address and PIN are sent as headers in the HTTP request and appear as follows:

Rim-device-email: [email address]
Rim-device-id: 2100000a

Note: The Rim-device-email and Rim-device-id parameters can only be sent when using the BlackBerry Browser, and are not available when using the WAP or the BlackBerry® Internet Service Browser.
