Default PIN from PC

Please Login to Remove!

Can I send a PIN message from a PC? application? or internet?
they seem to be delivered MUCH faster than email or SMS and have an auto "received" indicator...

What does that even mean? You used your pin to send an e-mail?
Explain.

Huh? ...That makes no sense. You can't send an email using a PIN...it's not another email address, it's a totally different type of system.

hmm. can anyone explain this to me?
I tried entering my phone number on my tv remote control but no matter what i did and no matter how many times i tried, none of my phones would ring. I even tried calling from different remotes and removing and reinserting the batteries. I am stumped!
Sorry, I had to play along. :(

You probably need to have your remote unlocked. Contact TVREMOTEUNLOCK.COM and they can handle it.

Pinning yourself has been known to cause blindness. Not that I would know anything about that.

Only pin yourself until you need glasses. That's common sense.

After that, switch to emailing yourself....but be careful, it has been known to cause hairy palms.

In the BES 4.1 Manager you will have the option to send PIN messages to devices. You select a user or a group of users and select "send message" and it asks you if you want to send by email or PIN.

We don't use our own BES -- as a Nextel customer is this available?

Unless you are a BES Administrator, with access to the BES console, you can not send a PIN message to a BlackBerry from anything besides a BlackBerry.

END OF DISCUSSION.
