What do you mean by "what PIN" means?

A PIN is a unique eight character identifier for a BlackBerry. Every BlackBerry has a unique PIN, which can not be changed.

Look in Options / Status for your PIN.

The PIN is a specific identifier unique to each BB! Like a finger print NO two are the same! This is used to identify your BB on the RIM servers!

Wow,
Now I know you think I'm stupid. I just seen it on the left under your name and had no clue someone would post they're pin. I'm sorry I didn't know what it meant. Like I said I have never owned a BB until I get mine on Tuesday. I will learn it all though.

Thanks

I thought it was a writing utensil. I prefer blue ball point, and it must be the "clicky type".

Yep, it is me in Panamal in June of this year. I'll put on another that's not
blurry, wasn't aware any of them were.

Wasn't meaning to be a butt, I had 15 min. to change orders on my phone
and no time for faq's.
