Default Question from a Newbie

Please Login to Remove!

If this is a stupid question, please forgive me, but I've only recently gotten my first BB.

I see a number of people on this board have their PIN number listed in their sig.

I have to beleive that this isn't their password, so then what is the PIN? I assume it's a messenger ID, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for any info!

Welcome to the forums!!!

PIN is used by BlackBerry as a messaging type service... It can be used from BB to BB only and you must have a data plan... Most use BlackBerry Messenger (makes it a threaded type chat) to PIN to PIN but it's not needed...
