Hi all,
I have been reading a lot on here and it's helping my learning process.

I do however have two questions:

What is a PIN and how would you send a message to it? Is it like SMS?

I have the 7250 model, and I would like to know in the main screen I want to have folders in there (example: Games folder with all my games) Is this possible?

I loaded BBToday (great program) and i would like to know if it can default to it when I touch my BB.

BBLight another amazing product. When I first got my BB the one issue I had was that the unit didnt light up when I touched it. Seems like you all felt the same way.
Question: The light has 2 settings, is it possible with BBLight to have it light up bright ?

A PIN is like a serial number. Every BlackBerry has a hardcoded PIN associated with it. Old ones, new ones, Java, C++ - they all have a unique PIN. You can not change it. PIN to PIN messaging it like SMS, but it can only start and end at a BlackBerry.

More so like email, if you choose compose you'll also have and option to compose a PIN (See mine below if your looking to test) data required but indipendent of BWC, BES, quick and its a Blackberry only feature. Great form of communication should an outage occure or between co-workers, friends. If you go into options then status your PIN will be listed

No

No, not with the current release. Maybe a future release will offer such a feature.

Another Question:
(forgive my noob questions)

Messages (email)

Okay, I have setup folders and rles on the blackberry/versions web client. My question is, when you goto the messages, can u see the folders easier than actually clicking it? I mean I would like to see like outlook:
Inbox (1)
John (7)
Frank
Etc... like outlook does. I know its a BB, im just asking..

If you have T-Mobile, you can set up message alerts that will give you the scores of teams you select, via a text message.....
