Default Web pin?

Please Login to Remove!

I found this site and at first I thought it was a web based interface that lets you send a pin to a BB.
http://www.blackberry.com/support/pa...nd/index.shtml
But it seems to be for an old paging service RIM used to offer with thier 900 series handhelds.

Does a web interface for sending PIN's exist? If not I would love to see one, it would be very useful, just like web based SMS.

I don't think this would be able to happen as to send a PIN you have to be connected to the BB infrastructure. If you are on the web you won't be connected. But it would have a been a pretty cool thing to have...

But...surely when I push a service book to myself via the BWC, it is sent as a PIN-type message...otherwise...how does it find the right handset.

Sorta... but not quite as I understand it. When you send a service book from BWC it sends a "notification" to the BB infrastructure to send the service book to your handheld. The PIN etc are all in that notification because your PIN is associated with your BWC account. All these notifications handled by the BB infrastructure which, from what I've read here, not too many people will ever be able to get much information about.

Roll on Friday... 1 hr left of work!

Cool...you learn something new everyday

So...with that in mind...I suppose they could do a one-way PIN paging service.

I think it would be very possible to do. Message gets sent from website to BWC/BES, that then forwards to BB. Direct communication no, but with either BWC or a BES acting as proxy, why not?
If a dev was so inclined it would be possible to create an app that just forwarded properly formatted and tagged emails to the specified PIN via a BB.
