Default changing PIN

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a new BB7290, as my old one died, and it came with a new PIN. How do I put my old PIN on the new BB.

PINs are device-specific. New device=new PIN.

You can't, BlackBerry PIN's are device specific and cannot be changed.

yeah, they are device-specific and cannot be changed.

(sorry, just wanting to be like the others that replied with the same answers )

A unique PIN is assigned to each BlackBerry and can not be changed.

I changed my PIN on my Blackberry.
Seriously, I did.
I'm not kidding.

PIN can't be changed on the blackberry. Whether you are under or on top of a dog pile.

(I wanna play too!)

I used a Hewlett Packard 5890 Series II Gas Chromatograph with Dual Flame Ionization Detectors to read the current PIN from my device.

Then I lit some Nag Champa incense and mediatated, a lot.
I concentrated really hard on the new PIN.

A few hours later... the PIN was changed. I'd say it was magic.

Everyone knows you cannot change a PIN, it has to WANT to change itself.

But mods can still write to threads after they are closed.

The end.

Done!
