PIN is a Personal Identification Number.

Every device has a unique one. You need it to send PIN messages to other BlackBerry users or to use BlackBerry Messenger.

It specifically identifies your device and allows RIM to send PIN messages and email to your device only.

Sometimes also refers to a PIN message (I.e. "Send me a PIN").
