Motherr Flippin Gosh Darn it...Cheese and Rice I cant believe these forum moderators always trying to keep us swearing types down.

To the best of my knowledge, I would agree with DAWG (Except on college football) that the carries sets their own ip address policies.

I would think out PIN numbers would somehow tie into our IP address, how welse could they track out internet time? I dont know how the anwser so any info would help.

I would guess that the user name is blocked.
On the Cingular network, the IP addresses are DHCP (dynamically assigned). This has caused a problem, as one of our internal sites logs the IP after logging in. If the IP changes, we have to log back in, and I log in a lot (sucks, really).
I cant imagine that any carrier uses assigned IP addresses. There just aren't really that many to go around anymore.

They don't see your PIN, just your IP, and they ban you based on it. My BB's IP has not changed in 6 months, but like dawg says, it depends on the carrier. You can't change your IP. Even if you could, there are ways to keep you banned and besides, ban evasion is as bad as using foul language. Becoming abusive and using foul language is a poor way to settle an argument anyway. No serious sites/forums/networks will condone it. Initially bans are usually timed and expire after a few days or weeks unless you prove to be a persistant pain in the neck, then a ban becomes permanent.

As has already been mentioned, it depends on your carrier. And even then, within the same carrier, different people have different situations. I have a static IP Address on my Nextel Blackberry. Nextel gave it to me without me even having to ask for it. But other Nextel customes have had to specifically request it, and pay a few extra dollars a month to get it. :-/

But the bigger issue is your foolish insistence on getting around your banning on those other sites. You were banned for a reason. By continuing to re-register, all you're doing is making more work for the sites' admins, and ultimately making it worse for the other site users. If you keep doing it, eventually, they'll just ban all users from your email provider. So, for instance, if you were registering with Yahoo email accounts, they'd ban all users that registered with Yahoo email addresses, and prevent new registrations with those addresses! >=(

Be a man, admit you made a mistake, accept that you're now paying the price for that mistake, and move on. Stop being such a selfish, immature brat about it!

If you are using MDS, then the IP address displayed will be your company's firewall IP address. If you are using BIS, then the IP address displayed will be a RIM gateway IP address. The latter could change based on carrier, location, gateway access, etc.

Here is an example from my own vBulletin forum from my handheld.
BlackBerry7100/4.0.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1

The actual IP address assigned to the TCP stack on your handheld is going to be a private, non-routeable IP address.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
