Red face Hacking BB Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how to hack into a BB Pearl to obtain text messages? I was told that by using the pin code I could transfer the information from one BB to another.

i don't even understand the question... you don't need to hack anything to get text messages. you don't even need any data plan of any kind. they just come though regardless of if you want them or not.

i dont understand eigther, but i would like to know how to hack one... i want to pull the TMO theme and remove the carrier banner from it. im on cingular and love the TMO theme i unlocked, but it really bothers me to have the carrier logo on my phones... i think i have an O.C.D. about that.

i doubt its possible, because blackberry wouldnt be as secure and reliable if you could just hack it like any motorola phone.

This sounds like someone who wants to get into someone else's BB to look at their SMS messages....

That's my thought, too, since a simple backup/advanced restore can move the messages from one device to another.

Unless the device with the messages is password protected and the password is not known....for some reason....

You can't edit the carrier themes. There are lots of themes out there for download, though. Check the Media Center forum here for lots of themes.

Question

I need to get a hold of my friend's text messages, without actually having to physically obtain the phone. Unlike Nextel, T-mobile does not allow one to view text messages online.

Why do YOU need to do this? Can't your friend simply view their own text messages?

Pass the popcorn, NJ.

See? You are good at hacking - right into our thoughts.

Seriously, though, there is no way to do what you're asking.
